top of fuel pump (11). Tighten clamp (9). Remove
clamp holding fuel hose closed.
Carbon monoxide is a colorless, odorless,
DEADLY POISONOUS gas and, when
breathed, deprives body of oxygen and
causes SUFFOCATION. Breathing air
with carbon monoxide produces
symptoms of headache, dizziness, loss of
muscular control, a sleepy feeling, and
coma. Permanent BRAIN DAMAGE or
DEATH can result from severe exposure.
The following precautions MUST be followed to
ensure personnel are safe whenever arctic heater or
engine is operated for any purpose. Otherwise,
injury to personnel may result.
· DO NOT operate arctic heater or vehicle engine in enclosed area without adequate ventilation.
· BE ALERT at all times during vehicle operation for exhaust symptoms. If either are present,
IMMEDIATELY EVACUATE AND VENTILATE the area. Treat affected personnel as follows:
expose to fresh air; keep warm; DO NOT PERMIT PHYSICAL EXERCISE; if necessary, give
artificial respiration as described in FM 4-25.11 and get medical attention.
· BE AWARE; neither the gas particulate filter unit nor field protection mask for nuclear-biological-
chemical protection will protect you from carbon monoxide poisoning.
(10) Start engine (TM 10-3930-673-10) and check for leaks and proper operation.
