ASSEMBLY OF SWIVEL JAW & SWIVEL Cont.
Check swivel bearing setting as follows:-
Wrap a length of cord around stub, approximately 1" from outer end. (fig. no. 27).
Fasten loose end of cord to a spring balance (capable of reading up to 50 lb).
Pull swivel from lock to lock noting spring balance reading
(ignoring force required to start rotation).
Correct reading should be 25 to 40 lbs.
If reading is not between these limits, thickness of shim needs to be adjusted.
To increase force required, remove shims from pack.
To decrease force required, add shims to pack.
Add or subtract shims from pack until correct reading of 25 to 40 lbs is obtained.
Fig No. 27
When setting is correct, remove top cap setscrews with washers (80 & 79) and lift off top cap and shim
pack (78 & 76).
Clean shims (76), also mating faces of top cap and swivel jaw (78 & 71) using Loctite Solvent' no.7070
or other chlorinated cleaning fluid.
Fit shims and top cap assembly onto swivel jaw.
Fit washers and setscrews (80 & 79) then tighten setscrews to 72 - 80lbs.ft. (98 - 109Nm.) to secure.
