In overseas territories, free service is carried out at different
mileages in accordance with locally accepted practice, or what we can get away with.


Fill to correct level with cheapest fluid handy. Do not overfill.
Engine Check oil level and top up if necessary. Check for oil leaks to assure they are properly present. Adjust to allow leakage to spec., as necessary.
Check ignition and reset contact breaker gap. Adjust carburettor slow running. Check tension of fan belt and generator adjusting nuts and bolts for tighness. Bandage cut knuckles.
Check master cylinder attachment bolts for tightness, as this may have been mnissed at the factory 500 miles ago.
Check pipe unions and bleeder screw and tighten if necessary, for the same reason above.
Gearbox Check oil level and top up if necessary, as it often leaks out in 500 miles.
