Drain enough fluid to drop the system pressure down to the recommended pressure
from Table 5-4. Be sure to add one-half PSI for every 1000 feet of altitude above
sea level.
It may be desirable to use the charging pump to return fluid from the bucket into the
original container. Disconnect and drain the hoses.
Determining the Final Fill Pressure
To use the fill pressure chart, determine the following:
o
the
total fluid volume of the system
o
the
number and size of the expansion tanks
o
the
temperature of the system fluid, during the charging process
o
the
system's elevation above sea level, to the nearest thousand feet
