(5) Install exhaust pipes (11).
(a) Position exhaust gasket (10) on exhaust pipe (11) roof flange and another exhaust gasket (15) on the
exhaust elbow assembly (12) flange. Secure exhaust pipe (11) and exhaust gasket (10) to the roof using
hexagon head capscrews (4), hexagonal nuts (6), and lockwashers (5).
(b) With exhaust gasket (15) positioned in between, bolt the exhaust elbow assembly (12), to the exhaust
pipe (11) using hexagon head capscrews (4), hexagonal nuts (6), and lockwashers (5).
MAINTENANCE OF CONTROLS, INSTRUMENTS, AND SWITCHGEAR.
General. The equipment covered in this paragraph is located In the control room compartment situated at the
rear of the generator set housing. The majority of the controls, instruments, and switchgear are contained in
three separate cabinets: A, B, and C. Cabinets A and B contain generator controls and equipment, while cabinet
C is used primarily for engine-related controls and instruments. Access to the equipment and wiring is provided
through hinged, key-latched, front cabinet door panels and removable rear access panels. The front panels of all
three cabinets can be opened from the control room itself, while access to the rear of the cabinets is through the
generator section of the housing enclosure. interior roof and wall panels of the control room are lined with sound
insulation material to reduce inherent noise levels caused by engine vibration during generator set operation.
The noise damping provision also functions to minimize possible adverse effects of vibration on controls and
Removal and Installation of Switchgear Access Panels. Access panels (see Figure 3-24) consisting of sheet
metal and sound insulation material separate the switchgear from the generator compartment. To remove and
install these panels, proceed as follows:
Access panels must be removed in order. First, right and left outer panels then inner
(1) Remove. To remove any switchgear access panels (4 through 8), remove hexagon head capscrews (1), flat
washers (3), and grommets (30).
(2) Install. Install switchgear access panel (4 through 8), replace grommet (30), flatwasher (3), and secure with
hexagon head capscrew (1).

failure to observe this precaution.
Control Room Heaters. H103 and H104. Control room area heaters H103 and H104 (see Figure 3-25) are
controlled by circuit breaker CB118 (located in distribution panel DP2), integral switches, and temperature adjustment
knobs. Adjust to attain desired temperature Inspect heaters for visible damage or evidence of scorching. Check security
of mounting and wiring connections.
