SYSTEM ASSEMBLY AND PREPARATION FOR USE (Continued)
When connecting system components, open all valves as components are connected except fuel drum
outlet elbow valves and filtration module inlet and outlet valves. Opening unisex coupling valves at
time of connection will expedite system setup and latch couplings together. Fuel drum outlet elbow
valves should remain closed until after engine is started so that engine does not have to start under
load. Fuel drum inlet elbow valves may be opened after the unisex-to-camlock adapters are installed.
The liquid fuel filter-separator inlet and outlet valves should remain closed until initial system
Inspect the eight fuel drum elbow valve couplings (figure 1, 3) to ensure that each elbow valve coupling (3) is closed
(valve stem fully extended).
Do not open elbow valve couplings.
Install the elbow valve couplings (3) on the inlets and outlets of all four fuel drums.
back out. Failure to check or failure of ball to pop back out could allow the buildup of static
electric charge that could cause an explosion and death.
10. Install one adapter assembly (2" unisex non-valved coupling to 2" male camlock adapter) (figure 5) on each elbow valve
coupling (figure 1, 3).

11. Remove inlet manifold (4) from storage module and install to camlock quick disconnect at fuel transfer pump inlet.
12. Position pump-engine module (5) 6-8 feet from fuel drums (2) with the pump inlet manifold (4) facing fuel drum outlets.
Figure 1 indicates the use of eight suction hoses to connect four fuel drums to the fuel transfer
pump inlet manifold. Actual set up may require fewer than eight suction hose lengths.
13. Install suction hoses (6) as required to connect fuel drums (2) to inlet manifold (4). Reposition pump-engine module (5)
as required. Open valved unisex coupling valves on suction hoses and inlet manifold.
