High Altitude Carburetor Kit
IMPORTANT: The air-fuel mixture in carburetors modified for high elevation is too lean when operating at elevations below 5,000 feet. Operating engines with modified carburetors below 5,000 feet can result in engine overheating and serious engine damage. Return carburetor to original factory specifications when operating at low elevations.

Refer to Figure 6-5 & Figure 6-6
Power steering belt and pump are positioned behind the engine and are protected by a shield. Do not remove shield except to service the belt and always replace shield after servicing the belt.
Take-up Bolt & Slot
Replace power steering belt when it shows signs of severe cuts, tears, excessive weather checking and cracking or burns caused by slipping. Slight raveling of belt covering does not indicate failure. Trim ravelings with a sharp knife.
Power Steering Pump
Inspect belt pulley grooves and flanges for wear. A new belt, or one in good condition, should never run against bottom of pulley groove. Replace pulley when this is the case, otherwise belt will lose power and slip excessively.
Never pry a belt to get it on a pulley as this will cut or damage the fibers of the belt covering.
Keep oil and grease away from belts and never use belt dressings. Any of these will destroy the belt composition in a very short time.
Make certain to keep fingers from getting caught between belt and pulley when rotating belt over pulley.
Replace power steering belt as follows:
Prepare vehicle for maintenance as outlined in steps 1-6 on page 22.
Safely secure the seat console in the raised position.
Disconnect negative battery cable.
Safely secure cargo box and seat console in the up position to prevent injury.
