I added this also to help explain the confusion in the books:


The Parts Catalog and FSM are a bit confusing regarding how many umbrellas are used and where. The information is there but it's just not clear.

The parts catalog only shows an exploded diagram of one rocker box assembly on the Rocker Arms, Covers and Pushrods page.
Yet, the description shows that 2 umbrellas are required. It's the same for all of the parts on that page (1 pushrod, tube ,lifter and related parts).
This is the norm mostly throughout the catalog with multiple (same) parts.
It's assumed this was done to save money on printing the catalogs (replicated information deleted).


The FSM displays the same exploded diagram as the parts catalog in the front of the Cylinder Head section.
It's only at the end of the Installation article does it say to install new gaskets on the middle rocker box (with the breather valve on the intake side).
There is no dedicated section on the rocker box or umbrella valves.

I added a sub-document to the EVO - Electrical System - Switches, Instruments, Lights, Turn Signals - Section

It is the excellent commentary from 'jbee' regarding the repair of water damage to the Indicator Lights on 2014-later models.
