Fuel Filters

The fuel filter is of the paper element type, and no
attempt should be made to clean the element. It should
be renewed when periodical maintenance is being
carried out.

The filters fitted to earlier engines have a separate
element positioned inside a bowl whereas filters fitted
to later engines have an encapsulated element held
between the filter head and the filter base.

The period for changing the element will largely depend
upon the quality and condition of the fuel available.

| Operating and maintenance information can be found in
| the multi-lingual 4,236 Series Users Handbook.

ment sealing washer, seal seating and spring from

the bowl.

condition, if not, fit new seals.
