Removal & Installation




CAUTION
Whenever servicing the fuel system, always works in a well ventilated area. Do not allow fuel spray or vapors to come in contact with a spark or open flame. Keep a dry chemical fire extinguisher near the work area. Always keep fuel in a container specifically designed for fuel storage; also, always properly seal fuel containers to avoid the possibility of fire or explosion. Fuel system work is made more hazardous by a hot engine. Work on a cold engine whenever possible.


WARNING
Do not use spray (carb) cleaners on any part of the throttle body. Do not apply silicone lubricants to any part of the throttle body.
