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. Recommend working over a wiping rag.
Lightly lubricate inlet O-ring (8) with petrolatum and install in second (square) groove (9) of inlet (5).
Due to the possibility of losing the continuity ball and spring, the following step is best
performed inside a container (e.g., a box) if possible.
Start the unisex coupling (3) onto the inlet (5). Install continuity spring (7) and ball (6) into hole in inlet (5) and hold in
the compressed position while completing installation of unisex coupling (3) onto inlet (5).
Place a wiping rag beneath the unisex coupling (3). Adjust coupling position until screw hole is facing up and ball race
(rounded groove) (10) in inlet is centered under screw hole. Insert the 41 balls (4) one at a time into the hole in the
housing by rotating the unisex coupling (3) back and forth while installing the balls (4). Once all 41 balls (4) are
installed, assemble O-ring (2) onto ball retaining screw (1) and install the assembly into the threaded hole to retain the
joint. Tighten retaining screw (1).
