Wipe oil on the post occasionally and run the post up and down through the slide block several
times. The upper wheel slide and band tension screw are lubricated by grease fittings. The
wheel bearings are sealed and lubricated for life at assembly.
If it is necessary to adjust the band tension indicator, first loosen the set screw clamping the wire
leading to the indicator. Then take all slack out of the band with the band tension control. Adjust
the indicator pointer to zero and lock the linkage arm to the wire. A more accurate calibration can
be obtained by using a band tension measuring instrument.
REPLACING WHEEL TIRES
When the tires are completely worn out, replace them by loosening the tire with a screw driver or
other flat tool and stretching it until it can be taken off. Scrape the wheel clean, and apply new
cement before installing a new tire.
Check the wheel brush occasionally.
If it worn so that it is no longer
contacting the wheel face, loosen the
adjusting screws and move the brush
up to the wheel. Replace as needed.
