3-48. HYDROSTARTER PUMP (ENGINE-DRIVEN) - MAINTENENCE INSTRUCTIONS.
a. The hydrostarter charging pump maintains a pressure of approximately 2900-3300 psi (1996 22754 kPa)
in the accumulator. Do not drive pump at a speed over 2500 RPMs. The pump body has an unloading valve
which by-passes the pump discharge to the reservoir once operating pressure is reached. This allows the pump
to work at a reduced load.
b. The hydrostarter charging pump is a single-piston positive displacement pump. The ball check valves
and the unloading valve are controlled by the accumulator pressure. The pump shaft is supported on ball
bearings and a seal. The pump is pressed into the bearing retainer to prevent leaks. The pump is attached to
the flywheel housing and is driven by a drive plate bolted to the camshaft.
