Thumb One Word Of Caution

The first time I adjusted the valves, after removing the spark plug I noticed that dirt and sand is easily trapped in the recess where the spark plug goes. The dirt can easily fall into the cylinder if you are not careful. My solution is to either use a shop-vac to suck out the dirt or an air compressor to blow it away before removing the plug.
