adjust the governor. Excessively high operat-
ing speeds are dangerous and increase the
risk of personal injury. Low speeds impose a
heavy load on the engine when adequate
engine power is not available and may short-
en engine life. Correct rated frequency and
voltage are supplied only at the proper gov-
erned speed. Some connected electrical load
devices may be damaged by incorrect fre-
quency and/or voltage. Only qualified service
technicians should adjust the governed speed.
4.5.10 CHANGING ENGINE OIL

dealers for engine oil and filter change frequencies.

oil completely into suitable container.
3. When all oil has drained, install and tighten OIL
DRAIN HOSE CAP , and re-install into its retaining
clip.
4. Turn OIL FILTER (Figure 4.2) counterclockwise
and remove. Dispose of old filter.
5. Apply light coating of new engine oil to seal of new
oil filter. Install FILTER and tighten by hand only.
DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN.
6. Remove OIL FILL CAP . Add recommended oil (see
