    Iím on a mobile device that oddly doesnít display images.

    I donít recall how the Czech and Russian vehicles differ but I believe the switch is caged with a little piece of metal over it. Far left or far right. I canít be 100 sure but thatís a good guess.

    The US Army translate and distributed manuals for them. I have seen them for other Russian armor on ebay.

    According to google translate that means "Vent Engine Protector"

    type "czech to english" into google to do further translations.

    All: Iíve located my information! Stand by while I enter it...

    OK, here is the starting procedure for the Russian BMP, and ID of some items:

    Last caged switch on right side of instrument panel is the master switch; turn on.

    Fuel shutoff lever is on floor to the lower right of the commanderís seat; ensure it is in the rear position.

    Check voltmeter for 22-26 volts; first gauge on dash from left, push button.

    Depress clutch, located on floor in front of driver, first pedal from left.

    Press oil pump button; third caged button from the left. Press until gauge reads 3kg/cm2. Oil pressure gauge is located second in from right.

    With oil pressure reading 3kg, simultaneously push electric and air start buttons; first and second covered buttons on right side of dash. Depress accelerator halfway. When engine starts, release buttons but maintain pressure on accelerator.

    Rotate idle adjustment knob counter clockwise until RPMs are 800-1000; knob is located near the floor by your right leg.

    Put vehicle in gear; shifter located to the right of the steering T-bar handle.

    Release clutch slowly to put vehicle in motion.

    To shut (my apologies to moderators if that word was misspelled on my first attempt) down engine, put fuel shut off lever in forward position.

    Shift pattern:

    1st 4th 2nd

    the best way to shut down the vehicle is but your foot under the accelerator and bring it back till the engine dies ,I would always leave the idle setting at 800 rpm

    Thanks for the information.
    One thing I’d like to clarify, are you sure that the fuel shutoff lever should be in the rear position before starting? The front position seems to open it...can anyone directly clarify? I don’t want to run the old girl out of diesel.

    True, that would work.

    I found that the older the Russian/Warsaw Pact armor, the more sensitive it was to having the throttle adjusted just perfectly for staying alive at idle. Probably less so on a well-maintained vehicle with a good fuel system.
