CONTROL SYSTEM OPERATION (Contd)
Starting and Ether Starting System Operation.
The starting system is identical on all models covered in this manual. It will start the engine in all types of weather
and has built-in protection that prevents starting components from reengaging once the engine has been started. Major
components of the starting and ether starting system are:
HAND THROTTLE CONTROL - Used to set engine speed without applying pressure to the accelerator
(rotated to lock).
BATTERY SWITCH - Activates all electrical circuits except arctic heaters.
IGNITION SWITCH - Has OFF, RUN, and START positions. Switch automatically returns from START to
RUN when hand pressure is released.
TACHOMETER - Used to indicate speed of engine.
VOLTMETER - Indicates charging condition of the battery.
EMERGENCY ENGINE STOP - Used to shut down engine during emergencies (M934/A1 series vehicles
must be reset by unit maintenance).
ETHER START SWITCH - Injects ether into engine for cold weather starting.
