The 16 units cover these areas/topics: job opportunities, safety rules, small engine tools and their uses, small engine parts and their uses, fuel selection and use (two-cycle), inspecting and servicing spark plugs, cleaning and inspecting cooling system, servicing air cleaners, cleaning and inspecting crankcases and exhausts, changing oil in four-cycle engine, checking carburetor, preparing for carburetor adjustments, adjusting carburetor choke and high speed load valve, checking ignition system, and starting and operating small engines.
