PERSONAL INJURY

To avoid injury from contact with rotating parts when an engine is operating with the air inlet piping removed, install an air inlet screen shield over the turbocharger air inlet. The shield prevents contact with rotating parts.

The tune-up procedure for the Series 50G consists of intake and exhaust valve clearance adjustments and spark plug replacement. These procedures should be performed with the engine cold. See Figure 27296 for the gas turbocharger compressor inlet shield. ‪
