in OFF position, reduce engine speed
to lower than
900 rpm to de-activate the centrifugal clutch.
(b) When the shop set engine is the power source, and you
have been operating with the power selector switch in GENER-
ATOR position, press the dynamotor stop switch (fig. 2-4)
and then reduce the engine speed to lower than 900 rpm.
(c) When external power source is used, momentarily press the

To stop compressor, push stop button and place the air compres-
sor circuit breaker OFF.
The air compressor pressure switch (fig. 2-3) will automatically
shut down the compressor when pressure reaches 150 psi; and
