Lubricants and Fluids
|Used engine oil may cause skin cancer if repeatedly left in contact with the skin for prolenged periods.|
Although this is unlikely unless you handle used oil on a dialy basis, it is still advisable to thorougly wash your hands with soap and water as soon as possible after handling used oil.
For the details of lubrication points and type of lubricants to be applied, refer to the illustrated index and various work procedures (such as Assembly/Reassembly, Replacement, Overhaul, Installation, etc.) contained in each section.
