For external fuel connection, proceed as follows:
FOR FUEL SPILLS, REFER TO FM 10-67-1, CONCEPTS AND EQUIPMENT OF PETROLEUM
Fuel is flammable and toxic to eyes, skin, and respiratory tract. Skin/eye protection is required. Avoid
repeated/prolonged contact. Use only in well-ventilated areas. Keep away from open flames or other
sources of ignition. Post FUEL FLAMMABLE/NO SMOKING signs around the area. Be sure a fire
extinguisher is available.
Fuel on clothing can be fatal if ignited by a static discharge. If fuel gets on clothes, leave the refueling area
as soon as possible, remove clothes, and wash skin with warm, soapy water before getting dressed.
Spilled fuel creates a flammable, vapor-air mixture and fire can take place. Improper positioning of
external fuel source can cause fuel tank to overflow. Stop refueling immediately if fuel spill occurs.
a. Remove dust cap (1) from external fuel port (2).
b. Remove dust cap (3) from external fuel hose (4) quick-disconnect and attach hose to ASH external fuel port (2).
c. Remove plug (5) from external fuel hose (4) and connect hose to external fuel source.
The INTERNAL TANK/EXTERNAL TANK selector valve must be fully positioned to either setting. Any

and damage to the fuel pump.
Set fuel selector valve (6) to EXTERNAL TANK position. Ensure that handle on fuel selector valve (6) is
horizontal and pointing to the right.
