CLEANING AND INSPECTION
Clean All Parts Use a suitable cleaning fluid. Allow
the parts to remain in the cleaner for some time to
loosen up any particles of grease or foreign matter.
Remove any burrs or rough spots from any
Needle Bearings Do not disassemble. Clean with
short stiff brush and blow out with compressed air.
Work a small quantity of lubricant into each bearing
cap and turn the needle bearing on the trunnion to
check wear. Replace if worn.
Journal Cross Because worn needle bearings used
with a new journal cross or new needle bearings
used with a worn journal cross will wear more rapidly
making another replacement necessary in a short
time; always replace the journal cross and four
needle bearing caps as a unit.
Journal and Bearing Kit (Figs. 29 and 30) To
facilitate the replacement of journals and bearings, a
Journal and Bearing Kit is available. The use of the
Kit insures having the correct individual parts when
required and saves valuable time.
