Yes, lowered cab, valve 3 in direktion down. Fill to the lower edge of the filler hole 2. Means nearly full.

These pics are from the owners manual of a MAN F2000 but the function is the same.
thank you. Do you know where I can find a list of the correct fluids/ oil/hydraulic etc and quantities for this truck? Also, need new gaskets for wheel hubs and filter types?there is an appendix at the end of one of the TMs posted here that has a huge list of various fluids but can’t really tell which goes where or quantities.
I am super excited about owning one of these trucks. I plan on posting photos of the restoration process as well.

Our 1977 Kat1 is powered by a Deutz V8 aircooled engine. Our 1996 MAN F2000 is powered by a straigt 6 liquid cooled engine. Yours is powered by a V10 liquid cooled engine, so I have no Data sheed. Perhaps you find out an engine number or/typ ( like D28 40 V10 turbo) I will check if these engines are used in other trucks. Perhaps we find out some specs this way. (y)

The engine is a MAN D2840, 365HP, 18.72 displacement. The hydraulic lines connected to the cab over lift cylinder are damaged, so I pulled the bango bolts out and made new hydraulic hoses with new fittings to connect it to a stand alone 12 volt lift pump. I plan on lifting the cab up tomorrow to get a better look at the engine. some of the steel fittings on the back side of the cab are just melted from rust corrosion. My plan of approach is to replace all hoses and damaged fitting that I can see anywhere. Step two will be flush out all the fluids and replace with brand new, all filters will be replaced as well. i will be upgrading the size of the fuel filter and water separator from stock. I plan on using some big Caterpillar diesel filters. Do you know what type of oil filters go on this engine? I am making new master cylinders out of 22oz gravity hvlp paint sprayer cups. Even reusing the old top collars and sensors from the original. I called a few authorized MAN service centers here in the US to today and was flat out rejected at both. They only work on MAN marine diesels, not truck engines. Couldn’t even get an oil filter or any shred of information. They were both very rude. Looks like I’m going to have to ”go it alone” on this one. Plan a trip to Germany and pickup any and all parts I need there.
