HOW TO USE THIS MANUAL
All of the procedures in this manual are organized in a sequential, step-by-step format. The informa-
tion has been compiled to provide the mechanic with an easy to read, handy reference that contains

In this revised format, the condition of a faulty component will precede an arrow symbol and the
course of action required will follow the symbol, e.g.,
Pitting/scratches → Replace.
To assist you in finding your way through this manual, the section title and major heading is given at
the top of every page.
The illustrations within this service manual represent all of the designated models.
The cross references have been kept to a minimum. Cro
