If the step does not say to discard a part, the part should be saved. It may be used later, or repaired.
Avoid damage to parts during disassembly, cleaning, inspection, repair, and reassembly procedures. Nicks,
scratches, and dents caused by careless handling could result in equipment failure.
Dirt can damage parts and cause malfunctions. Make sure all air and fluid openings, lines, and hoses are capped or
plugged during maintenance procedures.
During disassembly, tag parts to ensure proper assembly.
During disassembly, tag leads on electrical parts to ensure proper assembly. Tag each lead, as it is removed, with
numbers from wiring diagrams and terminals.
