To the administrator. 

At your convenience, please check two of the document pages. The first is, the schematic. The second page is of the top of chassis part locations.  

 There seems to be a second image on the PDF documents.  This image obscures (hides) the main image of that page.  
 
I would have fixed and uploaded a revision if I had PDF editing software. 
Thanks,
Paul
