Rubber gloves should be worn when handling fueling system components due to the
toxic effects of some fuel additives.
When inserting balls in unisex coupling ball race, use caution to avoid dropping loose
balls. Work over a wiping rag.
Lightly lubricate outside O-ring (6) with petrolatum and install in second (square) groove (10) of inlet (5).
Lightly lubricate inside O-ring (8) with petrolatum and install inside inlet (5).
Place springs (9) in inlet (5).
Install nylon seal (7) over inside O-ring (8) in inlet (5).
Assembly of the unisex coupling on to the inlet requires two persons, one to hold the
unisex coupling on the inlet against spring pressure and one to insert the balls.
Alternatively, one person can perform the task if the unisex coupling is pressed against
some object heavy enough to compress and hold the inlet springs while the balls are
inserted in the race.
Place a wiping rag under the unisex coupling (3). Slide the unisex coupling (3) onto the inlet (5) and adjust position until
screw hole is facing up and ball race (rounded groove) (11) in inlet is centered under screw hole. Install balls (4) one at a
time, rotating unisex coupling (3) back and forth until all 41 balls (4) have been inserted.
Install ball retaining screw (1) and O-ring (2) in unisex coupling (3). Tighten retaining screw.
