changes and updates.
Before beginning a procedure, think about the safety risks and hazards to yourself and to others. Wear protective
gear such as safety goggles or lenses, safety shoes, rubber apron, or gloves.
Before beginning a procedure, ensure that the following conditions have been observed, unless otherwise
Vehicle should be parked on level ground with parking brake set and wheels chocked.

Engine must be off and, unless otherwise indicated, cool.
Components must be at operating temperature to be tested. If engine must be run, vent exhaust fumes.

END OF TASK
Cleaning instructions will be the same for the majority of parts and components which make up the equipment.
The following applies to all cleaning operations:
Clean all parts before inspection, after repair, and before assembly.
Keep hands free of grease which can collect dust, dirt, and grit.
After cleaning, all parts should be covered or wrapped to protect them from dust and dirt. Parts that are
subject to rust should be lightly oiled after cleaning.
