opening as shown in figure 5-12 sheet 2.
Determine the difference between dimensions A and B.
When the difference between A and B is greater or less than 1/32 inch
(0.794mm), do not install impeller.
Failure to obey this caution may result
in equipment damage.
When difference is greater or less than 1/32 inch (0.794 mm), remove impeller
and add or remove shims as required.
