The octane engine lubrication system includes an externally mounted gear oil pump, an externally mounted oil pressure control valve, and a full flow oil filter. SAE 30 Grade engine crankcase lubricating oil is circulated through the gallery passages of the crankcase to all bearings and critical moving parts.
※Engine Stopped and Cold: An oil level near the top of the sight glass will typically provide the proper level when the engine is running and hot.
※Engine Running and Hot: Middle of sight glass.
Adjusting Oil Pressure Using Oil Pressure Control Valve. The Steps of Oli Pressure Adjustment:
NOTE: Observe the oil pressure at octane engine startup and adjust the control valve screw as required to ensure that oil pressure is maintained at the specification value. Disregarding this information could result in product damage.
NOTE: Observe the crankcase oil level in the sight glass on the side of the crankcase as the octane engine is started. If the level becomes low, shut the unit down and add additional oil. Disregarding this information could result in product damage.
For SINPAR FTC-M2 octane engine, if the oil pressure is not within a reasonable range, the octane rating unit will automatically stop within a minute. This is a necessary part of safety system to protect the octane engine.
