Place drain pan under gooseneck steering cylinder (7). Remove two elbows (8), preformed packings (9), and
pipe plugs (10) from steering cylinder (7). Repeat this step for other steering cylinder (7). Install caps/plugs into
all openings. Discard preformed packings.
Compressed air used for cleaning/drying can create airborne particles that can
injure the eyes. Always wear eye protection. Pressure must not exceed 30 psi
(207 kPa) or injury to personnel may result.
Dry cleaning solvent (P-D-680, Type III) is used to clean parts and is potentially
dangerous to personnel and property. Extinguish all smoking materials and do not
allow sparks or open flames near the work area. Use skin and eye protection and
work in a well-ventilated area. Flash point of dry cleaning solvent is 200F (93C).
Clean inside of hoses with compressed air. Clean outside of hoses with wiping rags. Clean all other components
with dry cleaning solvent.
Inspect hoses for kinks, splits, deterioration, chafing, cuts, and loose fittings. If hose is defective, notify DS
Inspect other components for nicks, burrs, corrosion, stripped threads, broken castings, and pitting. If parts are
defective, replace as required.
Apply pipe sealant compound to the all male pipe threaded hydraulic fittings, using
only enough compound to coat the threads. Do not allow compound to enter a
component/fitting or the compound may restrict fluid passages and damage to
equipment or equipment failure may result.
Note positioning/orientation of fittings on the illustrations. It is important to have
the tightened fittings positioned as shown so that hoses are not too short and
fittings do not interfere with one another or damage to equipment may result.
Remove caps/plugs, apply pipe sealant to male threads of two pipe plugs (10), and install into each gooseneck
steering cylinder (7).
Remove caps/plugs. Apply petroleum jelly to two preformed packings (9) and pipe sealant to male threads of two
elbows (8) and install preformed packings (9) and elbows (8) into each gooseneck steering cylinder (7).
Remove caps/plugs and install two hoses (4), two hoses (3), hose (2), and two hoses (1).
Install two block clamps (6) and bolts (5).
