Section XII. UNIT MAINTENANCE OF THE INTAKE AND EXHAUST SYSTEMS AND
The intake system consists of a dry type air cleaner assembly with a replaceable filter element which removes
dust and dirt from the engine combustion air. The air cleaner assemblv is equipped with a condition transduc-
er. The air cleaner condition transducer measures the vacuum Created by the filter element, but it transmits
an electrical impulse which illuminates the AIR CLEANER CONDITION indicator lamp on the engine control
panel when the filter element becomes unserviceable.
The exhaust system Provides a means of expelling exhaust fumes from the engine and muffles much of the
noise generated by engine operation.
The breather tube provides an escape route for gases which accumulate in the crankcase during engine opera-
tion. The gases pass through the breather, located in the engine valve cover, and are expelled into the air clean
er housing through the breather tube.
