NOTE ON ROD CHARTS:

Each pair of numbers (looks like a fraction) represents a pull.  The first number is the hole in the changer that the pull rod is inserted through, with # 1 being closest to the body.  The second number is the hole in the bell crank used, again, with # 1 being closest to the body.

If you have an older GFI with only 6 hole bell cranks, use hole 6 where hole 7 is indicated on the chart.
