IMPORTANT: Trapped air suddenly compressed in a
cylinder is heated and ignites the oil
used for assembly causing cap seal and
ring damage. Start with cylinder rod
retracted and the rod end filled with
clean oil. Connect the cylinder head end
and lines. Operate function to slowly
extend rod. Procedure will eliminate
most of the air and reduce the
possibility of damage.
15. Start the engine.
16. Slowly extend boom cylinder (F) to align pin bores so
dust seals are not damaged as cylinder-to-boom pin
(E) is installed.
17. Install shims (D) to get minimum amount of clearance
between boom and cylinder rod end.
Install retainer (B), cap screw (A) and nuts (C).
Tighten nuts against each other, not the retainer. Cap
screw must be free to turn in hole.
