MAINTENANCE

MAINTENANCE

A little time spent by the operator on preventive maintenance each day the unit is used will lead to longer operating life of the FMC BOLENS tractor.
The removal of debris, dirt and grease accumulations are considered normal maintenance practices and can help discover minor difficulties before they become troublesome.

 

LUBRICATION

See Lubrication Chart on page 28.

ENGINE

The engine oil level must be maintained in the "safe" operating range at all times. Oil level must be between the "L" (low) and "F" (full) marks on the dipstick. 

Clean area around dipstick (A) figure 16, so dirt does not fall into crankcase when dipstick is removed.

Check at least every 5 operating hours and add oil as necessary to maintain proper level - DO NOT OVERFILL. Oil level must not exceed the "F" mark.
On a new engine, change oil after the first 2 hours and thereafter at 50 hour intervals. Drain oil while it is hot for it will then flow more freely and thus carry away more impurities. After completely draining oil, reinstall drain plug, (B) figure 17 then remove oil filler cap and

Note : To remove drain plug, use 3/8 allen wrench.
