STEP 1 : INSTALL TWO BOLTS
(SEE FIGURE 1)
. Assemble two 3/8" x 1-1/4" hex bolts (D) and 3/8" hex
nuts (P), threading the nut a!l the way onto the bolt
until it is tight against the head of the bolt.
Assemble the lift frame assembly to the bucket
assembly using two 5/8" x 1-1/2" hex bolts (A) and
5/8" nylock nuts (M). Tighten, then !oosen the nuts
1/4 turn, or until the lift frame pivots freely.

ASSEMBLY
(SEE FIGURE 3)
o
Assemble the lift bracket assembly to the lift frame
assembly using two 5/8" washers (BB) and 1/8" x
1ol/4" cotter pins (ll).
(SEE FIGURE 5)
Loosen the bolts and nuts on the lift strap
assemblies 1/4 turn or until the straps will slide back
and forth. You will retighten them later in step 27.
Turn the lift strap assemblies as shown. Install each lift
strap assembly to an arm of the lift bracket assembly
and then secure with a small 1/2" washer (Z) and a
short hairpin cotter (GG).
Position the lower end of each lift strap assembly to
the outside of the lift frame. Fasten to the upper front
holes in the lift frame using a 1/2" x 1" clevis pin (LL),
1/2" spacer (JJ) and short hairpin cotter (GG) for each
assembly.
NOTE: The lift strap assemblies may be installed in the
rear mounting holes of the lift frame to increase the lift
height, but this will also increase the lifting effort. The
front holes give a lift height of about 6-1/2" and require 28
Ibs. of force to lift a 150 Ib load. The rear holes will give a
lift height of about 8ol/2" and require 35 Ibs. of force.

Swing the tilt bracket forward to check for clearance
with the pin stop bracket. There should be a small
gap between the tilt bracket and the side of the pin
stop bracket. If not, adjust the position of the pin stop
bracket side to side.
Make sure the two bolts in the tilt bracket are loose
enough to turn by hand. Align the tilt bracket so that
the dump control pin snaps into the hole in the tilt
bracket. The tapered end of the pin should extend
clear through the tilt bracket. Tighten the two bolts
and nuts in the tilt bracket.
