Three small hand-operated shut-off valves in the fuel oil distribution lines are provided as positive shut-off
means in the event of leakage through solenoid valves, etc. They are normally open.
See Screed Section 7 for screed heating and fuel oil spray details.
PRE-START CHECK (DAILY REQUIREMENT)
Before starting a paver for a regular run the operator should check the following details personally.
1- Engine oil level. It will be somewhat below hot oil level, (Dipstick gauge).
2 - Transmission oil level (14" on Dipstick).
3 - Engine fuel level.
4 - Coolant supply. (Radiator).
5 - Hydraulic fluid level (Reservoir sight gauge).
6 - Battery water level.
7 - Screed Heater fuel level.
8 - V-Belt Tightness and condition.
9 - Engine air filter condition. (Especially Diesel.)
10 - Air Filter Hose for loose clamps or leaks.
Before starting a paver for a regular run, the operator should make sure that the following requirements
have been attended to:
1 - Oil level in both transfer cases is adequate.
2 - Grease fittings have been attended as recommended for daily lubrication requirement.
TO START ENGINE:
The following procedure is recommended for start-up of a paver in preparation for a paving run.
1 - Disengage main clutch.
2 - Turn main control key switch to ON.
3 - Set both Track switches to BRAKE. Set all other switches on console to OFF.
4 - Start engine by turning and holding the key switch to ON. (Also see Engine Operator's Manual).
5 - Check to make sure the transmission oil pump is operating in the following way:
(a) Look at the oil line Sight Glass on the top of the transmission. (Section 3, Fig. 10) With the main
clutch disengaged and the transmission pump not turning the sight glass will be clear, indicating no oil flow.
(b) Engage the Main Clutch.
(c) Look at the sight glass to be sure it is darkened by the oil flow which indicates that the pump is
working properly to lubricate the upper gears and bearings of the transmission.

PAVER TRAVEL (NOT PAVING)
With the engine idling and main clutch disengaged;
1. Move both Track Switches to BRAKE position, and Follower Switch to OFF position.
2. Set the three transmission levers to produce the speed and direction of movement you wish. (If gears
do not mesh, jog main clutch and try again).
(a) Range Lever - #1 (slowest) through #4 (fastest).
(b) Direction Lever - Forward or Reverse.
(c) Speed Lever - #1 (slowest) through #6 (fastest).
3. Engage main clutch.
4. If slow movement is desired, as for unloading the paver or moving through a narrow area, leave the
Throttle Switch at idle and move the track switches to TRAVEL. Steer the paver by moving the switch of the
pivot track to OFF or BRAKE depending upon how sharp a turn is needed.
5. When fast movement is desired, move the Throttle Switch to SOFT START and move both Track
Switches to TRAVEL. Steer the paver by moving the switch of the pivot track to OFF or BRAKE depending on
how sharp a turn is needed.
