Rough handling or overtightening the screws when servicing can cause the standoffs to shear off the plate.

THIS DAMAGE DOES NOT CREATE A SAFETY HAZARD

Repair may be needed if the tilt homing sensor is affected.


To prevent this situation, do not torque the cap screws to more than 15 in/lb.


If you have this damage on a unit, Kit #80430136 has parts and instructions for replacing the PEM Standoff bracket.
