Overhaul cautions
 
(1)  Disassembly
1  Use correct and suitable tools whenever possible, and do not try any unsafe or unreasonable procedures.
2  Be careful with operations on mating surfaces and sliding surfaces to prevent loss of surface accuracy.
3  Make marks on disassembled parts for organized, thorough damage detection and precise assembly.
4  Loosen nuts and bolts in a diagonal direction from the outside, being careful to follow the numerical order when indicated.

(2)  Inspection, repair and replacement
1  Repair or replace after completing parts inspection following the inspection procedures. Perform the same inspection for the new parts and replace parts as necessary.

(3)  Assembly
1  Always use a torque wrench to tighten nuts and bolts to the specified torque.
2  Tighten nuts and bolts from the center to the outside diagonal direction, gradually in two or three successive stages. Follow the numerical order when indicated. 
3  Gaskets, packing, oil seals and O-rings should be replaced with new ones in principle. 
4  Each part should be cleaned thoroughly and blown off with compressed air. In particular, check that oil and water passages are not clogged or obstructed. 
5  Be careful not to scratch or damage sliding or mating surfaces. Clean off all dust, debris or foreign matter. Lubricate all sliding surfaces with an adequate coating of oil.
