Section XV ETHER QUICK-START
The quick-start system is identical in all M915 thru M920 vehicles.
2-40. ETHER QUICK-START.
ENGINE RUN SWITCH. Energizes 12-volt electrical system, including quick-start
solenoid valve circuit.
ETHER BUTTON. Activates solenoid valve. Will not work if thermal switch is open.
ClRCUIT BREAKER (CB-5). Protects electrical components and wiring of quick-
start system by opening circuit when load exceeds 20 amps. Automatically recycles
until overload is removed.
THERMAL SWITCH. Opens when coolant temperature is above 50°F (10°C), and
prevents solenoid valve from activating.
ETHER CYLINDER. Replaceable 18-02 (710 cc) ether container.
ETHER TUBE. Carries ether from solenoid valve thru atomizer to engine air intake
ATOMIZER. Sprays fine ether mist into intake manifold.
SOLENOID VALVE. Controls release of ether from cylinder. When solenoid is
energized, ether flows to atomizer.
