MAINTENANCE--ENGINE
If the sponge gasket on the side of the element comes
loose, stick it back on with an adhesive sealant. If the
sponge or the element is
damaged,
replace the
element.
Since repeated cleaning opens the pores of the ele-
ment,
replace it with a new one in accordance with the
Periodic Maintenance Chart
(Pg.
10). Also, if there is
a break in the element material or any other damage to
the element, replace the element with a new one.
FUEL TANK, FUEL TAP,
SOLENOID FUEL VALVE
The fuel tank capacity is
27.0
liters,
4.6
liters of
which form the reserve supply. For US model, the fuel
tank capacity is 21.4 liters, 4.9 liters of which form the
reserve supply.
The solenoid fuel valve is installed in the fuel line
between the fuel tap and the carburetors. This valve
operates electrically, and allows the fuel to reach the
carburetor only when the engine is running or the
clutch lever is pulled in. Whether the engine is running
or not is detected by the alternator
output.
Inspection and cleaning
If fuel leaks from the tank cap or from around the
fuel
tap,
the cap gasket or tap
0
ring may be damaged.
Visually inspect these parts, and replace them if neces-
sary.
Examine the air vent in the tank cap to see if it is
obstructed. Use compressed air to clear an obstructed
vent.
Any water in the fuel tank and the carburetors can
be drained through the drain plugs (Pg.
22).
If water
cannot be drained completely by removing the drain
plugs, remove the fuel tap, and flush out the tank with
a high flash-point
solvent.
For thorough cleaning of
the carburetors, remove and disassemble the carbure-
tors (Pg. 49).
