CRANKSHAFT DAMPER REPAIR
Cleaning solvent is mildly toxic. Solvent evaporates and both the
fumes and liquid are flammable. Continued contact with solvent
can cause skin problems.
Ensure there is good airflow when using solvent, and work area is
away from heat and flames.
Keep fire extinguisher nearby.
Do not breathe solvent fumes.
Avoid skin contact. See Warning in front of Manual.

The crankshaft damper is heavy and awkward. It requires a two-man

the head cut off and tapered (item 16 WP 0177) to facilitate
installation and removal.
