OPERATORS, WHEN YOU'RE CHECKING THE 815F COMPACTOR'S ENGINE OIL LEVEL, MAKE SURE YOU READ THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE DIPSTICK.

OIL EXPANDS WHEN IT HEATS UP, SO READINGS WILL CHANGE. THAT'S WHY IT'S RECOMMENDED THAT YOU CHECK THE OIL LEVEL BEFORE YOU START THE ENGINE, WHILE THE OIL IS STILL COLD. MAKE SURE THE OIL LEVEL IS ABOVE THE ADD MARK ON THE ENGINE STOPPED SIDE OF THE DIPSTICK.

IF YOU NEED TO CHECK THE OIL WHILE THE ENGINE IS RUNNING, THE LEVEL SHOULD BE BETWEEN THE ADD AND FULL MARKS ON THE ENGINE RUNNING SIDE OF THE DIPSTICK.

IF YOU ACCIDENTALLY ADD TOO MUCH OIL, SHUT OFF THE ENGINE. THEN TAKE OFF THE ENGINE OIL FILL PLUG AND USE AN AOAP VAMPIRE PUMP, NSN 4930-01-119-4030, TO REMOVE THE EXCESS.

FOR MORE INFO ON CHECKING ENGINE OIL, TAKE A LOOK AT PAGE 95 OF TM 5-3805-380-10 (AUG 99).
