HOW TO USE THIS MANUAL
HOW TO USE WORK PACKAGES (Continued)
Work Package Steps and Elements
Read through the work package for step-by-step illustrated instructions.
The numbered steps
tell WHAT to do; the lettered steps tell HOW to do it.
Occasionally, a numbered step will
have several lettered steps.
Note that the letter "l" is intentionally omitted because it looks like
the number 1, which could be confusing.
If you are an experienced mechanic, you may need to read only the numbered steps.
If you are
a beginning mechanic, you will want to read all the steps.
If you come to a step that has
already been done, skip that step and go to the next step.
