1 Gall coolant = $8.75 Slightly worn hose = $ Small Engine = $ 6, (Plus repair time!) Set antifreeze protection level to between –20 and –40 for Europe. Coolant is a mixture of antifreeze and water. Only add coolant! Worn belts = $5.75 (Each) TM Principles of Automotive Technologyhttp://autorepair.about.com/mbody.htmTechnical Manuals –10 & -20

$75.58 Each 5 ton = 4 each = $ per Truck Average unit with 30 trucks = Terminal Cleaner ? httm://www.4unique.com/battery/battery_tutorial.htm 1 Battery = 600 Amps Loose cable or clamp means 600 amp arc welder!!! (Times how many in your system!!!) LEARN MORE HERE –FREE!!! $ minutes -Common tool $9, $ minutes installation + Time, transport, labor - If readily available
Dead Vehicle Live Vehicle Serviceable Slave Cables Supervision!!! Publications - 10 Publications - 10 Now to recharge your batteries, use this rule of thumb. Divide your capacity (M923 has 4 X 600 amp batteries) by your capability (M923 has 60 amp alternator) thus; 600 X 4 = 2400 divided by 60 = 40 ‘running hours’ to recharge When possible, use the charger from the common tool set! It’s there for this! S laving means you started your engine from other batteries, S laving does not mean you skip PMCS! Reminder: A discharged battery will freeze at +32F and may explode if a load is placed against it!!
What holds you on the road? Try CTA , Appendix A If the roads ‘might’ go red, you should already have chains on board and be able to install them. Correctly! If the roads ‘might’ go red, you should already have received annual training on cold weather operations. If not you are unsafe!
