Always have plenty of oil, water and gasoline before trying to start; all three are vital. 4. See that the radiator is full of water before starting. 5. Keep oil and gasoline clean, and free from water. 6. Oil all exposed working parts daily. 7. Be sure to retard magneto before starting; otherwise a serious accident may result. 8. Turn on switch before trying to start. 9. Start the motor with the throttle only part way open. 10. Run the motor idle for only short periods; it is wasteful and harmful to run idle too long. 11. Watch the lubrication constantly, it is most essential. 12. Remember that the propeller is the business end of the motor; treat it with profound respect when it is in motion. 13. When the motor is hot allow it to idle a few minutes at low speed before turning off the switch. This insures the forced circulation of the cooling water until the cylinder walls have cooled considerably and also allows the valves to cool, preventing possible warping. 14. Avoid that destructive disease known as "tinkeritis"; when the motor is working satisfactorily, leave it alone. 15. Be sure to inspect daily all bolts and nuts. Keep them well tightened. 16. Stop the motor instantly upon detecting a knock, a grind, or other noise foreign to perfect operation. It may mean the difference between saving or ruining the motor.
