STARTING THE ENGINE

IMPORTANT: READ THE SEPARATE, ENCLOSED ENGINE FOLDER TO BECOME ACQUAINTED WITH ITS OPERATION AND MAINTENANCE REQUIREMENTS.

ELECTRIC STARTING
1. Check PTO safety clutch (should be in OFF position) and gear shift [should be in NEUTRAL].

2. Pull choke knob all the way out (to fully close choke). Experience will indicate need for more or less choking due to variations in temperature, grade of fuel, etc.

3. Turn throttle knob counterclockwise to unlock if necessary. Pull throttle knob out about half-way until after engine has started, then adjust to desired RPM and lock at this setting, if desired, by turning knob clockwise.

11. PARKING BRAKE - To apply parking brake, pull knob up and move it to the right. To release, pull knob up and move it to the left. Don't drive with Parking brake on.4. Insert ignition key and turn clockwise, against spring tension, to actuate starter. Release key when engine starts.

CAUTION
DO NOT ACTUATE ELECTRIC STARTER FOR MORE THAN 30 SECONDS AT ONE TIME. ALLOW AT LEAST TWO MINUTES BETWEEN STARTING ATTEMPTS.

5. Choke should be partially opened (knob pushed forward) as soon as engine starts and then gradually pushed all the way forward as the engine warms up. In normal operation, choke knob should be in OPEN (forward) position for best engine efficiency and fuel economy.

6. To stop engine, run key OFF (counterclockwise) and place gear shift lever in NEUTRAL, setting brake if necessary. Remove ignition key when tractor is not in use
