Installation Procedure Important: Inspect all connectors for dirt and burrs. Clean or replace components/assemblies as required. Fuel line O-rings for cuts, nicks, swelling or distortion. Replace if necessary.
Caution: In order to reduce the risk of fire and personal injury, before connecting fuel pipe fittings, always apply a few drops of clean engine oil to the male pipe ends .This will ensure proper reconnection and prevent a possible fuel leak.During normal operation, the O-rings located in the female connector will swell and may prevent proper reconnection if not lubricated.
