I would recommend to make digital pics, for a reference, because Pat is not
kidding when he says it will pop apart fast! Also make sure to take it apart
in a place where you won't loose any small springs and other litttle pieces,
like over nice size tray. I think the screw that has to be loosened on the
bottom is an allen bolt, at least on my '91 200 but is a philips on the '86
Good Luck, Martin.
