Always observe the maintenance intervals in the manual, and remember to note the engine/trans- mission identification number when you order service and spare parts.
The engine must be broken in during its first 10 operating hours, as follows:
Run the engine in normal operations. However, full load may not be applied other than for short periods. Never run the engine for long stretches at constant speeds during this period.
Higher oil consumption is normal during the first 100-200 hours of operation. For this reason, check
the oil level more frequently than the normal recom- mendation.
When an disengageable clutch is installed, it should be checked more carefully during the first days.
Adjustments may be necessary to compensate bed- ding-in of the friction plates.
