DISASSEMBLY AND ASSEMBLY
Batteries discharge highly explosive hydrogen
gas and can explode and shower you with sul-
furic acid if a spark is created near the battery.
Batteries can also cause burn injuries when a
ring or watch completes a circuit between the
positive battery post and the frame of the ma-
chine. To prevent injuries always remove all
rings and watches and wear safety glasses
