PERFORM FUEL SPILL BACK TEMPERATURE TEST - Continued
CORRECTIVE ACTION - Continued
Start engine (TM 55-1925-205-10).
Operate engine for 10 minutes after normal operating temperature has been reached.
Shut engine down (TM 55-1925-205-10).
Position drain pan under fuel return line (Figure 5, Item 1).
Disconnect fuel return line (Figure 5, Item 1) from fitting (Figure 5, Item 2).
Start engine and run for several seconds allowing an inch of fuel to accumulate in drain pan.
Using a thermometer, measure temperature of fuel.
If the fuel temperature exceeds 150°F (66°C), 8 percent horsepower will be lost
for every 20°F increase. (Metric conversions, on increasing increments, are not
proportional to standard temperatures.)
Verify the fuel temperature is below 150°F (66°C).
If fuel temperature is above 150°F (66°C), Replace fuel cooler (WP 0081).
Connect fuel return line (Figure 5, Item 1) to fitting (Figure 5, Item 2).
