Too hot to handle.

Summers are hot enough without adding hot air to your M577's 4.2-KW generator, crewmen. That's why the engine air shutter has a SUMMER/WINTER lever.

During cold weather, setting the lever to WINTER deflects cold incoming air past the exhaust manifold. The preheated air makes for easier restarts and a smoother run.

Unfortunately, some crewmen forget to move the switch back to SUMMER when the temperatures go back up. Already hot air becomes scorching. The generator's air filter is toast and that can cut off the air supply.

So do your 4.2-KW a favor. Flip the engine air shutter lever to WINTER when it's cold and to SUMMER all the rest of the time.
