sive under certain conditions, creating the potential
for serious burns. Make sure the area is well venti-
lated and free from any source of flame or sparks;
this includes any appliance with a pilot light. Do not
smoke. Turn the ignition switch off. Disconnect the
battery (-) terminal. To avoid fuel spills, draw it from
the tank when the engine is cold. Be prepared for
fuel spillage; any spilled fuel must be completely
wiped up immediately.
Never drop the fuel pump especially on a hard sur-
face. Such a shock to the injector can damage it.
