Dry cleaning solvent PD-680 is toxic and flammable. To prevent
personal injury, wear protective goggles and gloves and use only in a
well-ventilated area. Avoid contact with skin, eyes, and clothes and

Check threads of all attaching parts for stripping
and wear. Replace as necessary.
Examine drive shaft (B), cylinder block
(C), and each piston (D) for scratches
and nicks. Make sure each connecting
