1-4 GENERAL INFORMATION
Incorrect torque applied to a bolt, nut, or screw may
lead to serious damage. Tighten fasteners to the specified
torque using a good quality torque wrench. Often, the
tightening sequence is followed twice-initial tightening and
final tightening with torque wrench.
Use common sense during disassembly and assembly,
excessive force can cause expensive or hard to repair dam-
age. When necessary, remove screws that have a non
-permanent locking agent applied using an impact driver.
Use a plastic-faced mallet whenever tapping is necessary.
Hardening, shrinkage, or damage of both gaskets
and O-rings after disassembly can reduce sealing per-
Remove old gaskets and clean the sealing
surfaces thoroughly so that no gasket material or other
material remains. Install new gaskets and replace used
O-rings when re-assembling.
Liquid Gasket, Non-permanent Locking Agent
For applications that require Liquid Gasket or a
Non-permanent Locking Agent, clean the surfaces so
that no oil residue remains before applying liquid gasket or
non-permanent locking agent. Do not apply them exces-
sively. Excessive application can clog oil passages and
cause serious damage.
For items such as bearings or oil seals that must be
pressed into place, apply small amount of oil to the con-
tact area. Be sure to maintain proper alignment and use
smooth movements when installing.
