Section IV. MAINTENANCE OF ENGINE LUBRICATION SYSTEM
The engine oil pan serves as a reservoir for lubricating oil. It is equipped with a bayonet type gauge for
checking the oil level in the pan. Oil is drawn into a gear type, positive displacement pump through a screen
which prevents the entry of coarse abrasives. The oil pump forces the oil through a full flow type oil filter, which
removes minute abrasives. From the oil filter the oil flows into the header, a drilled passage in the cylinder
block, from which it is distributed to the internal engine components. A pressure transmitter measures oil
pressure in the header and transmits it electrically to the oil pressure gauge. Header oil pressure is also
measured by a low oil pressure switch which shuts down the engine if oil pressure falls to a dangerously low
