Notice! NOTE: At the 500 hour or 12 month service interval, it is recommended that the belt be removed and checked for wear. While the belt is removed, inspect pulleys and bearings. Rotate and feel for hard turning or unusual sounds. Contact the engine manufacturer if pulleys or bearings need replacement.
Inspect for conditions that could hinder performance or safety, such as (but not limited to) oil, coolant, and fuel leakage, blocked vents, loose or missing hardware, and improper electrical connections. Inspect the fan belt for signs of cracking, fraying, and stretching, and verify the belt is properly seated in the pulley grooves. Replace the belt according to the manufacturer’s recommendations.
Use the schedule in the following table as a guide for regular maintenance intervals. For additional or replacement copies of the engine operator’s manual, contact an authorized dealer in your area.
