Adhesives, solvents, and sealing compounds can burn easily, can give off harmful vapors,
and are harmful to skin and clothing. To avoid injury or death, keep away from open fire
and use in a well-ventilated area. If adhesive, solvent, or sealing compound gets on skin
or clothing, wash immediately with soap and water.
Spacing between first four installed screws must be even to prevent uneven pressure on
case halves when torquing. Failure to do so could cause component failure.
Apply sealing compound to eight
screws (19). Install four of the eight
screws and four washers (20), as
opposing pairs (D and E), into case
halves (21 and 22). Tighten screws
to 60 - 75 lb-ft (81.35 - 101.69 N·m).
Tighten screws in pairs opposite
Install remaining four screws (19)
and four washers (20). Tighten
screws to 60 - 75 lb-ft
(81.35 - 101.69 N·m).
