1 Scope

1.1 The purpose of this recommended practice for installation, maintenance, and operation of internal-combustion engines is threefold, viz.:

a. To present information of a general nature pertaining to their installation and to emphasize installation recommendations for specific types of service, observation of which is often overlooked.

b. To present maintenance check-off lists for daily, weekly, and monthly maintenance of such engines.

c. To present trouble-shooting recommendations with which the causes of most common engine troubles can be determined. This publication does not purport to be a detailed instruction manual; and, in cases where additional information is required on a particular piece of equipment, the manufacturer should be consulted.

1.2 To present (see Appendix A) recommendations for minimizing potential fires and/or explosions.

1.3 The information presented under installation and maintenance has been classified as:

a. Applicable generally to all types of internal-combustion engines in all types of service.

b. Particularly applicable to engines in drilling or semi-portable plant service.

1.4 Particularly applicable to engines in oil-well pumping, oil-pump, or similar service where the engines may or may not be under daily observation. Both multiple-cylinder and single- or two-cylinder engines are considered in the latter category.
