Change the Filter Element

------ WARNING! ------

Fuel leaked or spilled onto hot surfaces or electrical components can cause a fire.

Turn the start switch OFF or disconnect the battery when changing the fuel filter or cleaning fuel strainer.



Do not fill fuel filter with fuel before installing it. Contaminated fuel will cause accelerated wear to fuel system parts.

2. Remove and discard the filter element.
3. Clean the filter element mounting base.
4. Coat the seal of the new filter element with clean diesel fuel.

There are rotation-index marks 90° apart on the filter. Use them as a guide for proper tightening.

6. Prime the fuel system. See the Deutz Engine Operating Guide for further instructions.
