SPEED INCREASER REPAIR (CONT).
Injury to personnel or damage to equipment could occur from improper
hoisting. Hoist the load slowly to avoid tearing out lifting bail assembly,
slipping slings, or load shift. Do not jerk the load or swing it from side-to-
side when hoisting. This places additional stress on hoisting components
which can cause failure and loss of load. Be sure hoisting equipment is
on solid footing and is suitable for the size of the load. Watch boom angle
and overhead clearance when hoisting.
Support speed increaser on a work bench with wooden blocks. Position clutch end facing upward.
Disassemble the speed increaser as follows:
Remove jam nut (1) and lockwasher (2) from hose fitting (3) in clutch housing (4). Push fitting (3) and hose (5)
into clutch housing.
Straighten bent portion of hub nut lockwasher (6) from hub nut (7). Remove hub nut (7) and lockwasher (6) from
clutch shaft (8) Discard hub nut lockwasher (6).
Use a conventional gear puller with threaded legs for 5/8-11 tapped holes to pull
the clutch assembly from the clutch shaft (8).
Install puller so threaded legs screw into holes provided in hub and backplate (9) and jack screw exerts force on
end of clutch shaft (8).
Remove shaft key (10) and remove puller and clutch assembly from clutch shaft (8).
