Warning System Shuts Down Troubled Engines
A new engine warning system that goes one step beyond the protection offered by warning lights and gauges may be just the thing to prevent costly repairs to engines in remote locations or these operated by inexperienced help.
Road Tech Inc., Columbus, Ohio, says it's new Roadguard engine warning controls automatically shut down engines when they detect loss of engine oil or excessive coolant temperatures. The controls ground out the coil on gas engines and shut down the fuel line on diesel engines. If the vehicle is equipped with warning lights, no change is needed to the oil pressure or coolant temperature sending switches located on the engine. If your engine is equipped with gauges, the installation of a "tee" and a temperature and pressure switch for a warning light system is required. Complete installation instructions are supplied with the unit.
In addition to shutting down the engine when preset danger levels are reached, the Roadguard can also be fitted with loud alarm systems.
Roadguard controls sell for $69 to $129, depending on the type of engine and control needed.
