Yuchai Generator Set Startup Considerations at Normal Temperature :
1. Yuchai generator set can be started smoothly at an ambient temperature of not less than 0 degrees.
2. Push the lever of the fuel pump governor to the no-load speed at a speed of approximately 700 rpm.
3. Turn on the electric key and press the start button to start the diesel engine. If the engine does not start within 5 seconds, the button should be released immediately and a second start after 2 minutes. If the engine fails three consecutive starts, stop the start, find out the cause, troubleshoot, and start again.
4. After the Yuchai generator set is successfully started, the button should be released immediately and the electric key should be returned to the center position. We should pay attention to the readings of each instrument, especially the oil pressure gauge. Its reading should be greater than 147 kPa (1.5 kgf/cm2). Then, the unit should work at a speed of 600-750r/min for a period of time and check that the work of each part of the unit is normal. For example, you can feel the movement of the moving parts of the valve train with your fingers.
