LOCATION AND DESCRIPTION OF MAJOR COMPONENTS Continued
The engine starter motor (figure 1, sheet 5, 26) is located on the left rear side of the engine. The electric starter engages the
flywheel mechanically to start the diesel engine.
The skid base (27) provides the main structural support for the engine and generator. The skid base consists primarily of two
formed side rails, cross members, mounting pads, forklift openings, and a bottom plate. Main cross members complete the
primary skid base structure to support the engine and generator mounting pads and vibration isolators and reinforce the fork
lift openings (28). Four 25,000 lb (11,400 kg) capacity LIFT/TIEDOWN rings (28) are attached to the skid base frame. In
addition to supporting the engine generator assembly, housing, battery and other components, the skid base has provisions
for engine oil drain (30), coolant drain (opposite side), a water separator drain (31), and fuel tank drain (32). The skid base
also serves as a support and protective enclosure for the fuel tank.
The fuel tank (33) is a 128 gallon (485L) molded tank located below the diesel engine between the skid assembly side
ENGINE CONTROL MODULE
The ECM (34) monitors most of the engine sensors and controls the fuel injectors and engine timing functions.
