1. At the beginning of each season, lubricate, with a
light machine oil, the latch, the latch pivot bolt,
and the area of the axle where the draw bar tongue
pivots.
2. Grease or oil the wheel bearings periodically. Use
automotive wheel bearing type grease or 20 weight
oil.
3. Keep tires filled to the recommended tire pressure
of 12-14 Lbs.
22. Place the tailgate down into the tailgate guides so
that the holes in the bottom lip of tailgate fit over
the truss head bolts in the bottom of the cart. This
completes the assembly of your cart.
