CAUTION: Do not turn the steering wheel when the
engine is running and a low pressure gauge is installed
in the steering circuit. If the steering wheel is turned, the
gauge will be damaged.
2. Start the engine and run it at high idle.
3. The indication on each gauge must be 40 10 psi
0.7 kg/cm2) (276 69 kPa). The
difference between the two indications must not
be more than 10 psi (0.7 kg/cm2) (69 kPa).
If the pressures are not correct, the valve spool is
not in its center position. Shims (5) are used to make
the adjustment to the spool position.
STEERING CONTROL VALVE
3. Spring (outer). 4. Spring (inner). 5. Flow
4. Add shims to increase the pressure at valve ( I )
and decrease the pressure at valve (2).
5. If a pressure increase is necessary at valve (2),
remove shims (5). This will also decrease the
AIR IN THE STEERING CIRCUIT
Use the procedure that follows to remove air from the
steering system before and after tests are made:
1. Start the engine and turn the machine against
either the right or the left stop.
2. With the engine running and the machine against
the stop, open valves (I) and (2).
STEERING LINES (TOP OF GOOSENECK)
1. Bleed valve for right turn circuit. 2. Bleed
valve for left turn circuit.
3. When only oil (w with no air) runs out of the open
valves, close the valves.
4. Turn the machine against the stop in the other
direction and open the valves again.
5. Close both valves when no air can be seen in
the oil that runs out of the open valves.
