1-16. FUEL SYSTEM
Figure 1-11. Fuel System
The Fuel System consists of a 56 gal (212 L) capacity, 54 gal (204 L) useable fuel tank
(1, Figure 1-11), fuel priming pump and fuel/water separator (2), fuel shutoff solenoid (3),
fuel governor (4), and secondary fuel filter (5).
(1) The fuel priming pump is hand actuated and is used to pump fuel to the fuel
governor after maintenance is performed on certain parts of the fuel system.
(2) The fuel/water separator removes water and large solid particles from the fuel before
it is passed to the fuel governor.
(3) The fuel governor responds to input from the accelerator pedal and causes an
increase or decrease in engine speed. The fuel governor adjusts the amount of fuel
delivered to the engine as engine speed changes.
