MAINTENANCE AND ADJUSTMENT
coolant containing corrosion and rust
inhibitor chemicals are not used, over
a period of time, the cooling system ac-
cumulates rust and scale in the water
jacket and radiator. This will clog up
the coolant passages, and consider-
ably reduce the efficiency of the cool-
ing system.
WARNING
Coolant containing corrosion in-
hibitors for alminum engines and
radiators include harmful chemi-
cals for human body.
Drinking coolant can result in
serious injury or death. Use cool-
ant in accordance with the in-
structions of the manufacturer.
Soft or distilled water must be used
with the antifreeze (see below for anti-
freeze) in the cooling system.
NOTICE
If hard water is used in the sys-
tem, it causes scale accumula-
tion in the water passages, and
considerably reduces the effi-
ciency of the cooling system.
If the lowest ambient temperature
encountered falls below the freezing
point of water, use permanent anti-
freeze in the coolant to protect the
cooling system against engine and ra-
diator freeze-up, as well as from rust
and corrosion.
Use a permanent type of antifreeze
(soft water and ethylene glycol plus
corrosion and rust inhibitor chemicals
for aluminum engines and radiators) in
the cooling system. On the mixture ra-
