a. The wheel mounting kit is provided to enable
the-engine generator set to become mobile. The
wheel mounting kit consists of two detachable wheel-
axle assemblies, parking brake, safety chains,
pintle, and towbar.
The front axle wheels are free
to pivot up to 40 degrees for steering. The mechan-
ical parking brake locks rear wheels against rotation
and is actuated by a hand lever located at the right
rear of the kit.
b. When the wheel mounting kit is installed on the
gen%rator set, the set may be towed a maximum of
5 mph on paved highways. The kit has a ground
clearance of 8 inches and front wheels turn for
steering. For wheel mounting kit operating instruc-
tions, refer to p a r a g r a p h 2 - 2 6 .

covered during operation of the kit shall be noted for
future correction, to be made as soon as operation
has ceased. Stop operation immediately if a defici-
ency is noted during operation which would damage
the kit or the end item generator to which it is at-
tached. ml deficiencies and shortcomings SHALL
