When installing the steering cylinder to the steering column housing, be sure ring
spacers do not work loose or become misalined. If spacers are misalined or work
loose, stop the installation and remove the steering cylinder or damage to the
spacers may result. It may take a few attempts to accomplish proper spacer
Carefully maneuver piston end of steering cylinder (1) into steering column housing (22). Check condition of both
ring spacers during entire installation.
During installation of piston end of steering cylinder, one person can observe the
position of the cylinder by looking through the hole in the steering column
Once steering cylinder (1) is in place, loosen adjusting bolt on suspension mandrel (24).
After the suspension mandrel is loosened, the mandrel will be driven out of the
steering cylinder while installing the straight shouldered pin.
Apply antiseize compound to straight shouldered pin (20). Aline and install rod end connector (19) into straight
shouldered pin (20). Position pin so that hole for rod end connector is alined. Install straight shouldered pin (29)
through inboard hole in top of steering column housing (22) and steering cylinder (1). Remove suspension
Secure rod end connector (19) with screw (17) and lockwasher (18).
Install lubrication fitting (21) into straight shouldered pin (29).
Install top clamp (20.3), bolt (20.4), pin support (20.2), and self-locking nut (20.1).
Remove caps from both ports on steering cylinder (1) and, using a crowbar and two people, extend steering
cylinder (1) so that hearing in steering cylinder (1) is approximately alined with holes in spare wheel carrier (13).
Install caps onto ports of steering cylinder (1).
Using two people, maneuver steering cylinder (1) into spare wheel carrier (13).
Do not apply antiseize compound to inner wear surface of sleeve bushing. It may
get onto bolt threads, reversing the effect of thread locking compound, causing
damage to equipment.
Install button-head screw (15) into pin assembly (16). Apply grease to two nonmetallic seals (14) and apply
antiseize compound to exterior of pin assembly (16) and exterior of sleeve bushing (12).
