CAUTION: Pull quick connector holding it at the "A".position, as shown in illustration.
Do not pull with lateral force applied. O-ring inside quick connector may be damaged. Prepare container and cloth beforehand as fuel will leak out.

Zoom and Print Options

a. Remove quick connector cap.
b. Hold the sides of the connector, push in tabs and pull out the tube. (The figure is shown for reference only.)
If the connector and the tube are stuck together, push and pull several times until they start to move. Then disconnect them by pulling.

CAUTION: The tube can be removed when the tabs are completely depressed. Do not twist it more than necessary.
Do not use any tools to remove the quick connector.
Keep the resin tube away from heat. Be especially careful

Do not bend or twist the tube during installation and removal. Do not remove the remaining retainer on tube. When the tube is replaced, also replace the retainer with a new one. Retainer color: Green.
To keep clean the connecting portion and to avoid damage and foreign materials, cover them completely with plastic bags or something similar.

7. Remove the fuel injectors from the fuel tube, as follows:
a. Release the clip, and remove the fuel injector.
b. Pull the fuel injector straight out of the fuel tube.

CAUTION: Be careful not to damage the nozzle.
Avoid any impact, such as dropping the fuel injector.
Do not disassemble or adjust the fuel injector.

INSTALLATION
1. Installation is in the reverse order of removal.
- Install new O-rings on the fuel injectors.
- Lubricate the new O-rings lightly with new engine oil.
- Be careful not to scratch the injector during installation. Also be careful not to twist or stretch the O-ring. If the O-ring was stretched while it was installed, do not insert it into the fuel tube immediately.

Zoom and Print Options

a. Install the fuel injector into the fuel tube with the following procedure:
- Do not reuse the clip, replace it with a new one.
- Insert the clip into the clip mounting groove on the fuel injector.
- Insert clip so that projection A of fuel injector matches notch A of the clip.

b. Insert fuel injector into fuel tube with clip attached.
- Insert it while matching it to the axial center. Insert fuel injector so that projection B of fuel injector matches notch B of the clip.
- Make sure that fuel tube flange is securely fixed in flange fixing groove on the clip.
- Make sure that installation is complete by checking that fuel injector does not rotate or come off.

c. Install the fuel tube assembly with the following procedure:
- Insert the tip of each fuel injector into the intake manifold.

Zoom and Print Options

- Tighten the fuel tube mounting bolts in two stages in the numerical order shown.

2. Thinly apply new engine oil around the fuel tube tip end.

Zoom and Print Options

3. Align center to insert quick connector straight into fuel tube.
Insert fuel tube into quick connector until the top spool on fuel tubes is inserted completely and the second level spool is positioned slightly below the quick connector bottom end.

CAUTION: Hold at position "A" is shown, when inserting the fuel tube into the quick connector.
Carefully align to center to avoid inclined insertion to prevent damage to the O-ring inside the quick connector.
Insert the fuel tube until you hear a "click" sound and actually feel the engagement.
To avoid misidentification of engagement with a similar sound, be sure to perform the next step.

4. Before clamping the fuel hose with the hose clamp, pull the quick connector hard by hand, holding at the "A" position, as shown. Make sure it is completely engaged (connected) so that it does not come off of the fuel tube.

NOTE: Recommended pulling force is 50 N (5.1 kg, 11.2 lb).
