Could have used a good how-to article a couple of years ago when I did the pump on my 1200. I found out exactly what happens when you forget to put in the large OD O-ring around the pump body itself.

It leaks.

Got the pleasure of doing the job twice.

Some times having a hard copy on heavy paper and bound next to you for reference comes in handy.

That is why Mr Hewlett and Mr Packard spent a bit of time developing printers. They then hooked them onto computers so that you could download the "How To", and then you would have it beside you in full, or just the pages that you require to complete the task. It works for me.

The world is not going to finish today, as it is already tomorrow in Australia and New Zealand, and other islands of foreign nations such as Guam and Samoa.

You know that. I know that. However, not everyone has printers at home or easy access to them. Hard to believe but true. :o
