ENGINE LUBRICATION SYSTEM.
The Engine Lubrication System (Figure 19) consists of an oil pan, dip-
stick, pump, pressure sensor, filter, and oil level sensor. The oil pan is a reservoir for engine lubricating oil. The dip-
stick indicates oil level in the oil pan. A pump draws oil from the oil pan and through a screen removing large impuri-
ties. The oil then passes through a canister type filter where small impurities are removed. From the filter, oil is
distributed to the engines internal moving parts. After passing through the engine block, the oil returns to the oil
pan. The engine pressure gauge is a dial indicator type gauge which is calibrated in psig from 0 to 60. It measures
engine lubrication oil pressure. Normal indication is from 20 to 55 psig. The engine will shut off automatically if the
oil pressure drops below 20 psi.
