    2. Do not smoke or work near fire when handling the fuel system.

    3. Keep gasoline away from rubber or leather parts.

  3. FUEL LINE


    1. When disconnecting a high pressure fuel line, a large amount of gasoline will spill out, so observe the following procedures:


      1. Discharge fuel system pressure.

      2. Disconnect the fuel pump tube (Click here).

      3. Drain the fuel that remains in the fuel pump tube.

      4. A017D8XE07

        To protect the disconnected fuel pump tube from damage and contamination, cover it with a plastic bag.

      5. Put a container under the connectors.

    2. Observe these precautions when disconnecting the fuel tube connector.


      1. A017D7A

        Remove the fuel pipe clamp.

      2. Check whether there is any dirt in the pipe around the connector before disconnecting it and remove the dirt as necessary.

      3. A017BSOE10

        Disconnect the connector from the pipe by hand.

        Note:

        Be sure to disconnect the connector by hand.

      4. If the connector and the pipe are stuck, push in and pull on the connector to release it. Pull the connector out of the pipe carefully.

        Note:

        Be sure to disconnect the connector by hand.

      5. Check that there is no dirt or other foreign objects on the sealing surface of the disconnected pipe. Clean the surfaces if necessary.

      6. A017E46E04

        Do not damage the disconnected pipe or connector. Prevent entry of foreign objects by covering them with a plastic bag.

    3. A017C6IE01

      Observe the following precautions when connecting the fuel tube connectors (Quick Type A):


      1. Check if there is any damage or foreign objects on the connecting parts of the pipes.

      2. Line up the 2 parts of the pipes to be connected, and push them together until the connector makes a "click" sound. If the pipe is difficult to push into the connector, apply a small amount of clean engine oil to the tip of the pipe and reinsert it.

      3. After connecting the pipes, check that the pipe and connector are securely connected by pulling on them.

      4. Check for fuel leaks.

    4. A017BBPE01

      Observe the following precautions when disconnecting the fuel tube connector (Quick type B):


      1. Before disconnecting the connector, clean off any dirt that may be present.

      2. Pinch the tabs of the fuel tube retainer to disengage the 2 claws. Push the retainer down as shown in the illustration.

    5. A017BK5E01

      Observe the following precautions when connecting the fuel tube connector (Quick Type B):


      1. Line up the 2 parts of the pipes to be connected, and fully push the fuel tube connector and pipe together until they are fully seated. Next, push the retainer into the connector until its claws lock. If the pipe is difficult to push into the connector, apply a small amount of clean engine oil to the tip of the pipe and reinsert it.

      2. After connecting the pipes, check that the pipe and connector are securely connected by pulling on them.

      3. Check for fuel leaks.

      • Do not bend or twist the nylon tube.

      • Do not remove the EPDM protector on the outside of the nylon tube.

      • Do not pinch or kink the nylon tubes to prevent fuel leakage.

  4. INJECTOR


    1. A017B6WE01

      Install the injector to the delivery pipe and the lower intake manifold as shown in the illustration.

      Note:

      Before installing the injector, be sure to apply appropriate lubricant or gasoline where the delivery pipe or cylinder head contacts the injector O-rings.

        Do not use engine oil, gear oil or brake fluid.

  5. FUEL SUCTION TUBE ASSEMBLY WITH PUMP AND GAUGE


    1. A017DNRE01

      Do not disconnect the tube shown in the illustration when disassembling the fuel suction tube assembly with pump and gauge. Doing so will cause reassembly of the fuel suction tube assembly with pump and gauge to be impossible as the tube is welded to the plate.

  6. INSPECT FOR FUEL LEAK


    1. Check that there are no fuel leaks from the fuel system after doing any maintenance or repairs (Click here).
