After initial installation of a new engine, a
pinkish-colored fuel may drain during va-
por vent or shutdown. This is due to the
presence of residual dye used during fac-
tory fuel system leakage checks. This
fuel coloring is normal under these cir-
cumstances; it is not harmful to the en-
gine fuel system and will not cause op-
erational difficulties; it will disappear as
the engine is operated.
After engine has been depreserved, or
ODV, oil cooler, or HMU have been re-
placed, the first engine start may be
delayed (delayed lightoff). It may also
take longer than normal to reach idle
speed (ground idle). Smoke may be no-
ticed, but visible smoke should disappear
after preservation oil is burned off.
When depreserving engine after instal-
ling in aircraft, motor engine with starter
for 30 seconds.
