HYDROSEEDER® SAFETY SUMMARY SECTION
It is important that all operators of this machine are familiar with all of the safety aspects mentioned below
and have read the entire Operator’s Manual before operating the machine. Always keep a copy of this
manual with the machine. It is the responsibility of the operator of the machine to fully understand this
safety sheet. Remember that YOU are the key to safety. Good safety practices protect not only you
but also the people working with and around you. Keep in mind that this safety sheet is written for this
type of machine only. Practice all other usual and customary safe working precautions; and above all,
remember that safety is up to you.
The FINN HydroSeeder® is designed to mix and apply water, seed, fertilizer, agricultural lime and hydraulic
mulch to the prepared seedbed. The resultant slurry from mixing one or more of the above materials
may react causing harmful or deadly gasses within the tank. Heat, evaporation or extended emptying
period can/will accelerate the formation of these gasses. Please contact your supplier(s) of these slurry
components regarding their potential reactivity.
I. PRE-START EQUIPMENT CHECK (equipment
check is to be made with the engine off):
1. If you have a chassis
mounted
unit,
check
devices
securing
HydroSeeder® to the truck
or trailer frame.
2. If HydroSeeder® is a trailer unit, check hitch and
hitch bolts, lights, brakes and all safety components.
II. MACHINE OPERATION:
1. Always wear safety goggles when operating the
machine.
Other safety
attire such as safety shoes,
ear protection, gloves, hard
hats, dust masks, etc.
should be worn as required
by warning decals on
machine, operator’s manuals or job site requirements. Remove rings, watches,
etc. Avoid loose fitting clothing that may get caught
in rotating machinery.
2. Do not operate the machine
without all guards in place.
3. Make sure loading hatch bag cutter is in place and
secure.
4. Check that all guard railing is in place and secure.
5. Verify that all guards are in place.
6. With the ignition switch on, verify that the signal
horn is operating correctly.
7. By carefully looking down through the loading hatch,
inspect the slurry tank for foreign objects. Never
enter the tank without following the procedures
described in #3 of the Maintenance section in this
sheet.
8. Remove unnecessary objects (or material) from the
tank top.
9. Make sure no one is working on or inside the
machine. Signal “All Clear” before starting the
engine.
10. Inspect all hydraulic hoses for cracks, bulges or
damage. If hoses are bad replace immediately.
11. Inspect all discharge hoses for cracks, bulges or
damage. If hoses are bad replace immediately.
2
3. Do not load unit while in transit. Load only when
parked and unit is as level as possible. Take care
not to drop pens, lighters, etc. or pieces of paper
or plastic bags into the tank, as these objects
might plug the slurry system. Should any object
be dropped into the tank, do NOT reach into the
tank to retrieve the foreign object. See #3 under
Maintenance before allowing any personnel to enter
the tank.
4. Make sure area to be sprayed is clear of all persons,
animals, etc.
5. The driver of the carrying or towing vehicle is
responsible for the safety of the operator(s) of
the machine. Make sure the driver is aware and
avoids all possible hazards to the operator(s) of the
machine, such as low tree limbs, low power lines,
etc. Vehicles on which equipment is mounted or
towed must be stopped and started gradually. Avoid
abrupt starts or stops. Never operate on a slope
or a hill that may endanger the driver and/or the
operator(s). All personnel should review and be
familiar with stop/start signals between the driver
and operator(s) before going into operation. Only the
operator should be located on the platform during
operation.
6. Operator(s) of equipment
should never ride on the
machine at speeds of
greater than 5 MPH (8
kmh).
7. Never operate machine in
an enclosed area without
venting the engine exhaust
of both the equipment and
vehicle on which the equipment is mounted. Deadly
carbon monoxide fumes
can accumulate.
8. Never operate this or any other machinery when
fatigued, tired, under the influence of alcohol,
illegal drugs or medication. You must be in good
physical condition and mentally alert to operate this
machine.
9. Never modify the machine. Never remove any part
of the machine (except for service and then reinstall
before operating).
10. Use proper means (steps,
ladder) for mounting and
dismounting
of
the
machine. Never mount or
dismount
a
moving
machine.
III. SLURRY APPLICATION:
1. Do not aim discharge
spray toward power-lines,
transformers, or other high
voltage electrical conductors. Also do not aim discharge spray towards people, animals or anything
other than the intended
application area.
2. Never engage the clutch
when both the recirculation
and discharge valves are
closed. Operation with both
valves closed will result
in extreme heat generation
that could cause severe
bodily injury and damage
to the equipment.
3. Recirculation valve must be open and material flowing back into the tank when using the remote valve.
A closed or plugged recirculation line will cause
extreme heat in the pump or discharge lines which
will result in severe bodily injury and damage to
the equipment.
4. During application through a hose, high pressure
can be exerted at the end of the hose. Hose holding
personnel must establish good footing. The operator
should apply gradual pressure to the hose only after
hose holding personnel are firmly positioned and
have firm control of the hose. Additional personnel to
direct hose may be necessary if working on slopes.
The proper technique for hose holding personnel is
to firmly grasp the hose over the shoulder or under
both arms. Never hold the hose so it goes between
the legs. If the hose holding personnel finds that
it is uncomfortable for him to handle the hose by
himself additional hose holders should be positioned
at the end of the hose.
5. Plan application so that the furthest area is covered
first; working back toward the HydroSeeder®, so that
the individuals are not walking back over slippery
ground.
6. Before opening any valves
or pipe clamps shut
machine down and check if
material in the pipe is hot.
If hot, do NOT open valve
or pipe clamps as the hot
material may cause severe
personal injury. Allow to
cool and open with caution.
7. Except when loading materials keep loading hatch
lid closed to protect operator and prevent splashing
of wet material onto the tank top.
8. Wash off spillage of slippery mulch or slurry additive
from the tank top and platform before operating
equipment.

MAINTENANCE:
1. Before
servicing
the
machine, turn off engine
and allow all moving parts
to stop. To prevent accidental starting disconnect battery cables. Tag the engine
operating area to show that
the machine is being serviced. Use lockout/tagout
procedure (OSHA 29 CFR 1910.147).
2. Certain hydroseeding amendments, when combined
with or without the addition of water or heat or
the element of time, may react causing harmful
or deadly gasses! Consult your material suppliers
regarding reactivity information. The slurry tank must
be flushed and drained after each day of operation.
3. Your slurry tank may be
considered a confined
space by OSHA under 29
CFR 1910.146. Before
entering any confined
space, your company must
develop a procedure for
safe entry. Make sure your
company’s plan meets all
the requirements of 29 CFR 1910.146. including the
following:
a)
Drain, flush and ventilate tank interior.
b) Turn off engine and disconnect battery cables
and perform lockout/tagout procedures. (29 CFR
1910.147)
c)
Provide continuous ventilation or proper breating apparatus.
d)
If tank must be entered, personnel entering the
tank must be tethered to a lifeline.
e)
Provide stand-by individual outside of tank able
to communicate with person inside and able to
haul him out with lifeline if necessary.
4. Before loosening any clamps or opening any valves,
determine if material in the
line is hot by feeling the
pipe. Do NOT allow material to come in contact with
personnel. Severe bodily
injury could result.
5. On trailer units perform
general maintenance such
as checking the safety
chains, hitch and hitch bolts, tires, brakes. Repair or
replace if worn or broken. Never operate machine
on improperly inflated or damaged tires. Always use
a safety cage or cable restraints when re-inflating
a repaired tire.
4
6. Radiator maintenance: Liquid cooling systems build
up pressure as the engine gets hot. Before removing
radiator cap, stop the engine and let the system
cool. Remove radiator cap only after the coolant
is cool.
7. Battery maintenance: Lead-acid batteries contain
sulfuric acid, which damage eyes of skin on contact.
Always wear a face shield to avoid acid in the eyes. If
acid contacts the eyes, flush immediately with clean
water and get medical attention. Wear rubber gloves
and protective clothing to keep acid off skin. Lead
acid batteries produce flammable and explosive
gasses. Keep arcs, sparks, flames and lighted
tobacco away.
8. Filling of fuel: Never fill the tank with the engine
running, while smoking or when near an open flame.
Never smoke while handling fuel or working on the
fuel system. The fumes in an empty container are
explosive. Never cut or weld on fuel lines, tanks or
containers. Move at least 10 feet (3 meters) away
from fueling point before starting engine. Wipe off
any spilled fuel and let dry before starting engine.
NOTE: Be careful not to allow fuel, lubricant,
hydraulic fluid or cooling fluids to penetrate into
the ground or be discharged into the water system.
Collect all fluids and dispose of them properly.
9. It is recommended that only authorized genuine
FINN replacement parts be used on the machine.
10. Do not use either cold start fluid if engine is
equipped with glow plug type preheater or other
intake manifold type preheater. It could cause an
explosion or fire and severe injury or death.
11. Diesel fuel or hydraulic fluid under pressure can
penetrate the skin or eyes and cause injury, blindness or death. Pressure may build up in the hydraulic
system; use caution when removing the cap.
12. Make certain that all decals on the machine are
maintained in good legible condition. Replacement
decals are available through Finn Corporation by
specifying part number shown in the lower right
hand corner of the decal. See page 5 for the current
safety decals mounted on the unit. See pages 68-69

OPERATION AND MAINTENANCE
MANUAL FOR
FINN T170 HYDROSEEDERS®
This manual gives you step by step instructions for the operation and maintenance of the Finn HydroSeeder®.
For best results and to insure longer life of the equipment, please follow the instructions carefully. For your
safety read the entire manual before operation of this unit.
DEFINITION OF HYDROSEEDING:
Hydroseeding is the process whereby seed, fertilizer and/or lime and wood fiber mulch (using water as a
carrying medium) are applied on the soil to establish vegetation.
THE FINN HYDROSEEDER® AND HOW IT WORKS:
The Finn HydroSeeder® will apply seed, fertilizer and/or lime, wood fiber mulch, or stabilizing materials
in any prescribed or desired combination. The materials placed in the HydroSeeder® slurry-tank are mixed
with water and kept in suspension by a dual agitation process, recirculation of slurry and mechanical agitation, thus forming a slurry that is pumped to the discharge assembly and directed onto the seed bed by the
operator. This equipment is designed to accomplish hydroseeding in one easy operation with maximum
efficiency.
MOUNTING THE HYDROSEEDER®:
For speed and mobility of operation, the HydroSeeder® should be mounted on a truck or trailer, however, it
is important to select a carrier with sufficient capacity to handle the added weight.

GENERAL MOUNTING GUIDELINES:
7
Once the proper carrier has been selected, the HydroSeeder® must be securely mounted to it.
CAUTION:
Your FINN HydroSeeder® should be mounted by a qualified
truck body installer.
IMPORTANT:
Mounting the HydroSeeder® to the truck must allow for tire
clearance as well as frame twist. Place hard wood spacers along
the length of truck rails or use Finn spring mounting kit (#011562)
or equivalent.
ATTACHMENTS:
1. Extension hoses for reaching remote areas are available in 50 ft. (15m) lengths. All connections
are camlock quick operating fittings. The hose is connected to the end of the discharge boom in
place of a nozzle. The nozzle is connected to the end of the hose and controlled by the person on
the ground. The flow is controlled by a second person on the HydroSeeder®. This allows for a
full pressure and volume operation.
CAUTION:
Since the extension hose will be seeing the full output of the
pump with the recirculation closed, the equipment operator
and individual at the end of the hose should exercise extreme
care when operating unit on high pressure. The high pressure
on the hose can exert strong forces causing hose operator
to lose control of hose or footing. The hose will require
additional holders on slopes. Engage the clutch only after
the hose operator is firmly positioned and has firm control
of hose.
2. For lower pressure applications, or for close up work, i.e. around buildings, the remote valve
attachment can be used. The attachment includes semi-rigid hose with quick disconnect fittings
along with a hand held valve which fits the end of the hose and accepts the standard nozzle
assemblies. The hose is connected to the outlet on the discharge pipe above the pump. The
machine is run at 1/2 to 3/4 throttle and material is applied where desired.
DANGER:
The recirculation valve must be open when using a remote
valve. If valve is not open, extreme heat will occur resulting
in damage and/or bodily injury.
3. Hose Reel. The live hose reel will mount on the HydroSeeder® or on the truck frame. The 200
foot capacity electric rewind reel will wind up and store empty hose. It is electrically connected
to the HydroSeeder® battery.
4. Hardened pump parts. Pump casing, impeller, and suction cover treated with special material
designed to resist wear.
5. Rear spray bar. The spray bar option is not designed for slurry application but for the dispersion of
liquids for dust control, watering, feeding and washing applications. Rear spray bar is arranged so
that operation is remotely controlled from the truck cab.
8
PRE-START CHECK:
Safety check to insure operator safety:
1. Check condition of all mounting hardware securing HydroSeeder® to truck frame
2. Make sure bag cutter is in place and secure.
3. Inspect that all railings are in place and secure.
4. Insure that all guards are in place.
5. With the ignition switch on, see that the amber safety light under the operator’s platform
is flashing.
EQUIPMENT CHECK:
CAUTION:
Equipment check is made with the engine off and all rotating
parts stopped.
1. See that tool kit contains all the prescribed items (see tool list on page 74).
2. Inspect the “slurry-tank” for foreign objects. See numbers 2 and 3 in Maintenance Section (IV)
of the Safety Summary Section page 4.
3. Check fuel level.
4. Check the hydraulic oil level (see hydraulic system for oil specifications).
5. Check engine oil level...for oil type refer to the engine manual.
6. Check fluid level in radiator.
7. Inspect air cleaner for dust and dirt, clean if necessary.
8. Secure the drain plug on the outside-bottom of the slurry-tank.
9. Check to be certain pump drain plug is in place.
10. Lubricate equipment - See Lube Chart pages 26-27.
A. Each lubrication point is marked.
B. Check automatic pressure lubricator at pump. If the stem is fully extended with thumb
nut all the way up then pressure lubricator contains lubricant - if not, lubricant must be
replaced by the following procedure:
a) Turn thumb nut clockwise until stem rises to maximum height.
b) Remove cap and fill cap with sodium (water soluble) base grease. (FINN part
number 000698). Do not use lithium base (chassis lube) grease.
c) Replace cap.
d) Turn thumb nut counter-clockwise until the thumb nut is at the top of the stem.
The spring and pressure disc in the lubricator forces the grease, under pressure,
to the pump seal.
IMPORTANT:
When the thumb nut has moved down to within 1/2” (1.25 cm) of
touching the cap reservice the automatic lubricator.
9
11. Engage and disengage clutch to determine if it “snaps” in and out.
12. Install discharge boom assembly (if stored in location other than standard operating position).
A. Tighten the wing bolt at the opening around the top of the vertical pipe and insure that
discharge boom is secure
B. Check and clean nozzle of obstructions.
13. Check pump discharge and recirculation valve handles for free movement.
TWO VALVE OPERATION:
This HydroSeeder® is equipped with two independently operated plug valves to control slurry flow. One
is located in the recirculation line below the platform, and the other is located in the discharge line above
the platform. The valve handles should be positioned as shown in Figures 1-3 for the particular application
required.
WARNING:
Never engage the slurry pump clutch when both valve handles
are positioned as shown Figure 1. Both valves are closed and
will result in extreme heat generation that will cause damage
or bodily injury if the slurry pump is running.

1. DISCHARGE THROUGH BOOM:
Flow is through boom with no flow through closed
recirculation valve (Figure 2). Flow through boom is
controlled by engaging and disengaging slurry pump
clutch. Do not use the discharge valve to control distance. Valve should be completely open. Control
the spray volume and spray distance by adjusting the
engine RPM.
2. EXTENSION HOSE THROUGH BOOM:
Flow is through boom with no flow through closed
recirculation valve (Figure 2). Extension hose is connected to boom and flow is controlled by engaging
and disengaging pump clutch, or controlling the speed
of the engine.
Figure 2
DANGER:
Do not use remote valve in this application.
3. EXTENSION HOSE OR HOSE REEL
THROUGH REMOTE PORT:
Flow is through recirculation with no flow through
closed discharge valve (Figure 3). Flow through
hose is controlled by engaging and disengaging slurry pump clutch, or by remote valve at end of hose.
Open recirculation valve allows flow back into tank
when the remote valve is closed.
Figure 3
DANGER:
Recirculation valve must be open and material flowing back
into tank when using a remote valve. A closed or plugged
recirculation line will cause extreme heat resulting in damage
and/or bodily injury.

STARTING PROCEDURE:
CAUTION:
See safety section of the manual (pages 2-4) before operating
the machine.
Before starting, open the recirculation valve, close discharge valve, disengage clutch, and place the agitator
control in the neutral position.
1. Set throttle about 1/4 open.
2. While holding in the safety switch button, turn the key clockwise until the starter engages, and
the engine starts.
3. Continue to hold the safety switch in for approximately 10 seconds. Allow engine to warm up
for 3 to 5 minutes.
NOTE:
This engine has a safety system which will shut the engine off if the
engine oil pressure drops below 7 psi. or if the water temperature
reaches 230˚ Fahrenheit (110˚ Centigrade).
AREA COVERAGE - MATERIAL CAPACITY:
To determine the coverage per load for any HydroSeeder®, three questions must be answered prior to the
application. First, is the job to be done “one step” (which is when the seed, fertilizer and mulch are applied
proportionally per load) or “two step” (which is when the seed and fertilizer are applied alone and then
covered by mulch as a second operation)? Second, at what rates (usually in pounds per 1000 square feet,
or pounds per acre) are the seeding materials to be applied? Finally, what are the loading capacities of the
HydroSeeder®?
Application rates vary for different geographic locations, but in general, seed is applied at 6-10 pounds per
1000 square feet; fertilizer is applied at a rate of approximately 400 pound per acre; and fiber mulch is
applied at 1500 to 2000 pounds per acre. (Note: There are 43,560 square feet in an acre). Local agronomists, agricultural extension agents, or soil and water conservation officials should be contacted for more
specific information on application rates for a given area.
The following tables show loading versus coverage rates for the T170 Finn HydroSeeder®. Table A shows
rates for “one step” applications. The coverage area is determined by the fiber mulch capacity of the
HydroSeeder®, and the rate at which it is applied. Table B shows the area coverage when seeding only,
where little or no mulch is applied. The coverage area is determined by the granular solids capacity of the
HydroSeeder®, and the rate at which the solids are applied.

LOADING (FOR WOOD FIBER MULCH, IF LIMING SEE PAGE 19):
CAUTION:
Take care not to lose pens, lighters, etc. from shirt pockets or
drop pieces of paper or plastic bags into the tank, as these
might plug the slurry system.
1. With clutch disengaged and agitator control in the neutral position, start engine and allow it to
warm up (See starting procedure page 12).
2. Start filling the unit with water. When water reaches the top of the agitator shaft, move agitator
control to full reverse position.
Fill the tank with water from any stream or pond using a fill pump. When filling from
a pond or stream be sure to use a suction strainer to filter out contaminants which could
damage the pump and unit. Other sources of water:
1. Any pressure source, eg. fire hydrant. This unit is supplied with a 6” air gap fill
port but it is necessary to consult with local authorities before using water main,
in order to abide to all local ordinances.
2. Water tanker.
3. Piping System Cleanout Procedure (Purging Line):
A. Remove discharge nozzle and gasket from discharge boom.
B. Aim discharge boom assembly into an open area away from any persons, obstructions or
high voltage power lines.
C. Open discharge valve and close recirculation valve.
D. Increase engine speed to approximately 1/2 to 3/4.
E. Engage clutch with a firm snap. Do NOT slip clutch.
F. When discharge stream is clear, open recirculation valve and close discharge valve.
After recirculation stream is clear disengage clutch.
G. Replace nozzle and gasket in discharge boom.
4. Continue filling tank with water.
5. Increase engine speed to full RPM.
6. Start loading dry material, loading the lightest material first. Agitator control should be in full
reverse for mixing.
A. Seed - Cut the seed bag and dump contents into the slurry tank. (When using inoculant,
add it in the tank along with the seed.) When using quick swelling seeds load them
just prior to application.
B. Wood Fiber Mulch - Empty the entire bag in or cut bag and drop in the sections of
fiber. The amount of mulch to be used should be loaded by the time the water level is
at 3/4 full. If agitator stalls or a high pitch squeal comes from the hydraulic system,
reverse agitation to forward for a moment to clear the obstruction, then return agitation
to reverse.
CAUTION:
Hydraulic system will overheat if agitator shaft is jammed for
extended period. This will damage hydraulic oil and system
components.
15
C. Fertilizer - Stand over hatch opening and drop the bag onto the bag cutter. Grasp both ends
of the bag and dump material.
D. All other additives - Consult with manufacturer for proper loading technique.
7. When all materials are loaded and in suspension, and the tank is full, move the agitator to neutral
then full speed forward to insure all material is mixed. It may be necessary to change the agitator
direction more than once to insure a thorough mixture.
8. After material is thoroughly mixed, slow agitator in forward direction to 1/2 to 3/4 speed or enough
to create movement in all of the corners of the tank. Do not over agitate the slurry. Always
discharge the material with the agitator control in forward position.
9. Close the hatch lid on the slurry tank.
NOTE:
The slurry should not be recirculated for more than 15 minutes prior
to discharge to reduce wear and keep seed from swelling.
NOTE:
If foaming occurs, reduce agitator speed.
PRIOR TO APPLICATION:
1. Operator should familiarize self with area to be seeded and develop a plan to insure uniform
application.
2. Develop a plan for communication between operator and driver of the carrying or towing vehicle to
signal for start, stop, turn, etc. through the use of the signal horn.
3. Operator takes up position on the platform. From this point application will be controlled by the
use of the clutch, valve, discharge assembly and throttle.
DISCHARGE NOZZLE SELECTION:
Nozzles are stored in the tool box. This HydroSeeder® is
equipped with 6 nozzles - two long distance and four ribbon fan nozzles. The smaller long distance nozzle is generally better suited for seed, fertilizer and/or lime application while the large long distance nozzle is better for
wood fiber mulch application. All of the ribbon fan nozzles are generally suited for both types of application.

APPLICATION OF SLURRY:
I. GENERAL APPLICATION TECHNIQUES
DANGER:
Do not spray toward power lines, transformers or other high
voltage conductors.
CAUTION:
The driver of the carrying vehicle should remain alert for
hazards to the operator, such as low power lines, hanging
branches, etc. Driver should never start or stop abruptly.
1. Determine which nozzle would best suit the application needs according to the nozzle selection
chart on page 16.
2. Application of seed, fertilizer and lime: Elevate discharge nozzle no less than 10˚ above the area to
be sprayed, allowing the slurry to gently rain onto the seed bed.
3. Application of wood and paper fiber: Whenever possible aim the stream towards the ground to
create a surface with small pock marks which help get seed in contact with ground. Do not allow
the stream to blast away the surface of the seed bed.
4. Generally the most remote area of the seed bed should be covered first. Distance is controlled by
engine speed and nozzle selection. Do NOT partially close the valve to control the distance.
5. While moving along area to be seeded, the operator should move the nozzle back and forth in
a slow, even arc.
6. If application is to be interrupted for a short period of time, leave the valves open and disengage the
clutch. Re-engage the clutch to continue application.
7. It may be necessary to slow the agitator as the tank empties to reduce foaming.
II. DISCHARGE THROUGH THE BOOM:
1. Move the discharge valve handle to the open position, the recirculation valve handle to the closed
position, and engage the clutch. At this time, should the operator want to stop spraying for a short
period, disengage the clutch; then re-engage to continue spraying.
2. When the tank is empty, or when discontinuing discharge for an extended period of time, disengage
the clutch, then immediately move the discharge valve to the closed position, and idle the engine.
This will maintain moisture in the discharge piping and help prevent plugging. Move the agitator
control to the neutral position.
17
III. PROCEDURES WHEN USING HOSES:
Always pump clear water through the hose before pumping mulch. If the inside hose liner is dry, it will
dewater the mulch causing plugging.
A. PUMP TAKE OFF SYSTEM OR HOSE REEL WITH REMOTE VALVE :
1. Open recirculation valve and close discharge valve and close remote valve at the end of the hose.
2. Engage clutch. When stream is flowing freely through the recirculation line, open the pump take
off valve.
CAUTION:
The high pressure on the hose can exert strong forces causing
hose operator to lose control of hose or footing. The hose
will require additional holders on slopes. Open the pump
take off valve and the remote valve slowly and only after
the hose operator is firmly positioned and has firm control
of hose.
3. With the engine at 3/4 speed, open the remote valve at the end of the hose to discharge the load.
4. When finished spraying, close the remote valve, disengage the clutch, and stop the engine. If using
fiber mulch, retain as much water as possible in the hose by elevating the ends or by coupling
the ends together.
5. If another load is to be done, see reloading procedure on page 19. If finished for the day, follow the
clean up procedure and flush out the hose.
DANGER:
The recirculation valve must be open when using a remote
valve. If not open, extreme heat which will cause damage
and/or bodily injury will occur.
B. EXTENSION HOSE SYSTEM - WITHOUT REMOTE VALVE:
1. Connect the extension hose into the end of the discharge boom.
2. A person controlling the end of the hose directs a second operator at the machine to control the
clutch and adjust the engine speed.
CAUTION:
Since the extension hose will be seeing the full output of the
pump with the recirculation closed, the equipment operator
and individual at the end of the hose should exercise extreme
care when operating unit on high pressure. The high pressure
on the hose can exert strong forces causing hose operator
to lose control of hose or footing. The hose will require
additional holders on slopes. Engage the clutch only after
the hose operator is firmly positioned and has firm control
of hose.
3. When hose operator is ready signal the second operator to engage clutch and slowly increase the
engine RPM until the desired discharge pressure is reached.
18
4. When finished spraying, disengage the clutch, stop the engine, and close the discharge valve. If
using fiber mulch, retain as much water as possible in the hose by elevating the ends or by coupling
the ends together.
5. If another load is to be done, see reloading procedure on page 19. If finished for the day, follow
clean up procedure and flush out the hose.
RELOADING PROCEDURE:
1. Start at step 2 in loading procedure on page 15.
2. After last load of the day refer to the cleaning and maintenance section of the manual on pages
24-39.
LIMING WITH THE HYDROSEEDER®:
In using large concentrations of granular solids through the HydroSeeder ®, it is advisable to keep the
slurry moving through the pump at all times. This keeps the solids from settling in the lines, and creating a
stoppage. This unit was designed for the application of agricultural grade lime only.
PROCEDURE:
1. With clutch disengaged and agitator control in neutral position, start engine and allow it to warm
up (see starting procedure on page 12)
2. Start filling the unit with water. When water reaches the top of the agitator shaft move agitator
control to approximately 1/2 speed reverse.
3. Open both the recirculation and discharge valves.
4. Remove the discharge nozzle and gasket from the discharge boom.
5. Aim the discharge boom assembly into an open area away from any persons, obstructions or high
voltage power lines.
6. Move the throttle to approximately 1/2 engine speed.
7. Engage the clutch, and move the throttle to full engine speed. A stream of water should be coming
from the end of the recirculation pipe beside the hatch opening, as well as from the boom.
8. As soon as both streams are clear, close the discharge valve and make sure water is being
recirculated back to the tank.
9. Decrease throttle to 3/4 speed. Increase agitator speed to full reverse. DO NOT DISENGAGE
CLUTCH!
10. 20 pounds of granular solids displaces approximately 1 gallon of water. When filling the tank with
water the volume of granular solids must be accounted for. For example; If using the maximum
recommended capacity of 5000 pounds for a T170, 250 gallons (5000/20) would have to be
subtracted from the total tank capacity (1750 gallons - 250 gallons = 1500 gallons). If 1000 pounds
of solids were used, 50 gallons (1000/20) would have to be subtracted
(1750 gallons - 50
gallons = 1700 gallons).
11. Fill the tank to the required capacity for the rate of granular solids to be applied.
12. Load the material (see “Loading” page 15, steps 5-8).
13. When ready to apply slurry, install gasket and nozzle into boom.
14. Move agitator control to 3/4 speed, forward.
15. With the clutch still engaged, open the discharge valve.
19
CAUTION:
To decrease pump wear and increase discharge distance,
it may now be desirable to close the recirculation valve.
However, the recirculation valve must be open BEFORE
closing the discharge valve if the application of slurry is to
be interrupted. Extreme heat, which will cause damage and/or
bodily injury, will occur if both valves are closed.
16. Apply the slurry (see “Application of Slurry” pages 17-18).
17. If another load is to be applied, start again at step “1”. If finished, follow the clean-up procedure.
TROUBLE SHOOTING YOUR HYDROSEEDER®:
Because of the tremendous work load usually placed upon the HydroSeeder®, minor malfunctions will occur
from time to time. If these are not remedied immediately, they could lead to poor performance and damage
to the equipment. This section describes possible problems and the action to correct them.
1. Foam in the tank and air entrainment.
The mixture of dry materials with water will sometimes cause excessive foaming while others will
cause air entrainment. This is noticed primarily in the erratic discharge and a drop in pressure
and distance.
Some solutions are:
A. As the slurry level drops in the tank, slow the agitator.
B. Add 2 or 3 ounces (4 to 6 cl) of an antifoaming agent to the tank.
C. If you can determine which additive is causing the air problem, either add it last or not
at all - unless it’s the water.
D. Limit recirculation time as much as possible.
E. Open pump suction bleed valve to exhaust air trapped in the pump or suction line. Close
valve as soon as the air stops.
2. Plugging or clogging:
DANGER:
Turn off engine and disconnect battery cables before working
on equipment. Serious injury or death can result from moving
parts or high pressure spray.
Sometimes when a stoppage occurs, you will not be able to find anything in the line. When
this happens, it means that the system became airbound instead of plugged. To remedy this, see
“Foaming”. Plugging can occur in any one of four places; the valve and recirculation nozzle, the
discharge nozzle, the pump area and the sump area. The plugging is caused by either foreign
objects or dewatered fiber.
A. Obstruction in the discharge nozzle is determined by a change or stoppage of the spray pattern.
a) Disengage clutch.
b) Make certain that the pump has stopped rotating.
c) Remove the nozzle, slowly and carefully.
d) Clear the nozzle with the nozzle cleaning rod attached to the underside of the guard rail.
20
DANGER:
Severe injury can result from opening clamps when piping is
hot. Before loosening any clamps, determine if the pipe is
hot. If so, let it cool before attempting repair.
B. If the recirculation system is not working:
a) Disengage the clutch and shut down the engine.
b) Remove the two clamps on each side of the recirculation valve.
c) Slide the rubber seals back and remove the valve assembly.
d) Check the valve assembly, the recirculation nozzle in the discharge pipe, and the recirculation pipe going into the tank. Clear any obstructions.
e) Replace the valve assembly and slide the seals back into place. Lubricate the outside of
the seals.
f) Replace the clamps.
3. Obstruction in the pump, which can be determined by a drop in pressure. If the drop in pressure
is accompanied by a frothy or whitish discharge stream, the blockage is in the suction line or sump
area. To clear the pump:
A. Disengage the clutch and stop the engine.
B. Loosen the suction pipe clamps. If there is material in the tank, shut off the suction line
valve
C. Remove the clamp closest to the pump.
NOTE:
If no water comes out, it means that the obstruction is in the
sump area.
E. Reach into the pump and remove the obstruction. If it is jammed, the pump suction cover
may have to be removed.
F. Reassemble removing pipe “plug” in process.
G. Open suction line valve.
4. Obstruction in the sump area, which is located at the bottom of the tank on the inside where
the suction pipe is attached:
A. The easiest way to clear the sump is to back flush through the discharge plumbing with
the water supply hose.
B. Another method is to remove the drain plug and run a long pole through the opening and
into the sump area. Remove the obstruction and replace the drain cap.
C. Use a pipe or pole through the loading hatch opening to dislodge the obstruction.

B. Service the automatic lubricator on the pump as needed (for service see page 9).
C. Check the engine oil and replenish when necessary. Change oil and filter after first 100
hours then 250 hours thereafter. Consult the engine operator’s manual for the correct grade
of oil and the engine break-in procedure.
D. Lubricate the swivel on the discharge assembly and the swivel on the hose reel.
WEEKLY OR EVERY 40 HOURS OF OPERATING TIME:
1. Clean the air cleaner following the instructions in the engine operator’s manual.
2. Lubricate all the points on the HydroSeeder® as outlined in the daily maintenance section and, in
addition, lubricate the four grease fittings on the clutch/pump.
3. Check the level in the hydraulic oil reservoir - maintain level at sight gauge.
4. Check the clutch adjustment to insure that it “snaps” in and out of engagement. Adjust the clutch
with the engine off.
5. Check the anti-freeze in the radiator.
24
6. Inspect the slurry-tank for build up of residue in the suction area and clear if necessary.
7. Check and clean engine radiator. Flush with clear low pressure water and blow dry with compressed air. Do NOT use high pressure water spray.
SEASONAL AND WINTER STORAGE MAINTENANCE:
1. Drain the slurry tank of all water prior to storage and leave the drain plug disconnected.
2. If possible cover machine with tarp or park inside of an enclosure.
3. Store the HydroSeeder® with all slurry valve handles in the open position. To prevent damage from
freezing, it is advisable to remove all slurry valves and store in a heated area.
4. Pour one quart of mineral oil or environmentally safe lubricant into the pump housing and spin
pump by hand to prevent rust in the pump. Remove drain plug.
5. Chip and steel brush any interior rust spots in the slurry-tank and touch up with paint. See numbers
2 and 3 in Maintenance Section (IV) of the Safety Summary Section page 4.
6. Lubricate all fittings.
7. Check anti-freeze in radiator.
8. Lubricate equipment again just prior to starting operation after storage.
10. Change hydraulic oil and filter. (500 hours)
11. Disconnect battery cables. In cold weather, remove battery and store in safe warm place.
12. Add fuel stabilizer to fuel tank.
HYDRAULIC SYSTEM:
The hydraulic system on your Finn HydroSeeder® is designed to give trouble free service, if maintained.
The most important areas of maintenance are the hydraulic oil and filtration. The reservoir holds 22 gallons of SAE 10W/40 Service Class SE motor oil. The hydraulic oil should be replaced per the lubrication
schedule or if the oil becomes milky or it gives off a burnt odor. The hydraulic oil filter must be replaced on
schedule with a 10 micron filter – Finn part #021618. The hydraulic system relief is factory set at 2500 psi.

PUMP MAINTENANCE SECTION:
CAUTION:
Pump maintenance to be done only while engine is not
running, and battery cables are disconnected.
A. FACTORY-TOLERANCES.
1. To check pump tolerances loosen the two clamps on the pump suction piping and remove the
inlet elbow. Through the pump suction hole, insert a feeler gauge between the pump impeller (3)
and the suction cover (1). This measurement on a new pump is between .040-.045 of an inch
(1.00-1.15 mm).
B. IMPELLER CLEARANCE TO BRING THE PUMP BACK TO PROPER TOLERANCE, PROCEED AS FOLLOWS:
1. Push suction cover (1) into casing (5) until suction cover hits impeller (3). Impeller should be in
full contact with suction cover.
2. Tighten cap screws (5B) finger tight. Impeller should rub the suction cover and not turn easily
through one revolution.
3. Tighten cap screws (1B) to 15 lb. ft. (165 kg/m). Impeller should turn freely through one
revolution.
4. Back off cap screws (5B) 3/4 turn.
5. Tighten cap screws (1B) 3/4 turn and tighten nuts (1N) to 15 lb.ft. (165 kg/m).
6. Tighten cap screws (5B) to 15 lb. ft. Clearance gap should be about .040 inches (1.00 mm). Check
to see if impeller turns freely through one revolution.
NOTE:
Tightening of the cap screws should be in a criss-cross pattern.
DO NOT TIGHTEN TO OVER 15 LB. FT. (165 kg/m). Doing so
can crack the flange of the suction cover.
C. CLEANING.
1. To clean pump impeller (3), loosen the two victaulic pipe clamps and remove the suction pipe
assembly. The eye of the impeller can then be seen through the suction cover plate (1) and is
readily accessible for cleaning.
2. To remove impeller, remove the eight bolts (5B) holding the cover plate (1) in place. Remove cover
plate, being careful not to damage the O-Ring gasket (2).
3. Take the impeller wrench, which is stored in the toolbox, and position it so that the hole is aligned
with any of the eight tapped holes in the front of the pump casing (5). The 90° leg of the wrench
should face in towards the impeller and be positioned between any two of the impeller fins. Bolt
the wrench securely in place with one of the suction cover plate bolts (5B). Using a pipe wrench
on the shaft (11), unscrew the impeller turning the shaft in a clockwise direction. Be careful not to
unscrew the impeller too far before removing the puller wrench.
30
D. INSTALLING NEW SEAL ASSEMBLY (#4)
(DO NOT UNWRAP THE NEW SEAL ASSEMBLY UNTIL YOU ARE READY TO INSTALL. ALL PARTS
OF THE ASSEMBLY ARE PACKED IN SEQUENCE OF INSTALLATION.)
1. To replace the seal assembly (4), perform the above operations under cleaning and remove pump
casing (5) by removing the three bolts (10B) holding the casing to the pump frame (10).
2. After cleaning all parts including pump shaft, begin the reassembly of the pump. Install seal grease
retainer (6) with the cavity portion of the seal facing outward. Rebolt the casing onto the pump
frame using the three cap screw (10B). Using a light oil lubricant (3 in 1), install the ceramic seat
with its neoprene holder into the seal recess making sure it is square with the shaft. Lubricate the
inside of the bellows assembly with a light oil and check to be sure the steel ring is stuck (glued)
to the end of the assembly. Slide the bellows assembly onto the shaft and push till the steel ring
is against the ceramic seat.
3. Install the seal spring on the hub of the impeller. After coating the threads on the pump shaft with
an anti-seize compound, install the impeller - seating it securely.
4. Utilizing the rubber O-Ring gasket (2) reinstall suction cover using the eight cover bolts (5B). At
this time, check to see that the pump runs freely. If the impeller rubs the cover plate, you do not
have the impeller tight on the shaft or the cover plate needs readjustment - see “impeller clearance”.
Tighten these bolts uniformly using 15 ft. pounds (165 kg/m) on the torque wrench.
5. After reinstalling the suction pipe assembly, lubricate and tighten the victaulic clamps. Service
the automatic lubricator.

NOTE: New clutches or new facings usually
require several, frequent adjustments until
the friction facing surfaces have “worn
in”. The clutch friction facing will become
glazed, and possibly permanently damaged if the clutch is permitted to slip
excessively.
ADJUST THE CLUTCH:
Remove the PTO nameplate, disengage the clutch
and rotate it to gain access to the adjusting ring
lock.
Remove the lock bolt and adjustment lock.
Rotate the adjusting ring counter-clockwise to
tighten the clutch. Rotating the adjusting ring
clockwise will loosen the clutch. Adjust to obtain
the proper clutch handle engagement force.
When clutch is properly adjusted, reposition the
locking finger in a slot. Tighten the adjustment
lock bolt. Replace the PTO nameplate.
LUBRICATION:
LUBRICANT: Any high grade, Lithium Base #2,
short fiber grease recommended for use in 2,100
RPM roller bearings operating at temperatures
of 200 ˚F (93 ˚C).
34
Clutch Linkage and Levers: Lubricate with
engine oil every 500 hours of operation.
The lubrication intervals and the amount of grease
used should be adjusted to minimize the amount
of grease forced out of the bearing housing. A
small amount of grease driven from the bearing
housing is an indication that enough grease is
being provided.
Bearing Operating Temperatures:
The main bearing operating temperature range
is normally between 170 ˚F and 200 ˚F (76.7
˚C to 93.3 ˚C). Locations with high ambient
temperatures such as desert climates will cause
the bearings to run hotter.
More frequent
lubrication intervals and/or specialized grease
designed for higher operating temperatures will
be required.
NOTE: There is a tendency to test temperature
with the hand. However, it is difficult
to hold a hand on a bearing housing
operating at 150 ˚F (65.6 ˚C) although
that temperature is below the normal 170
˚F (76.7 ˚C) operating temperature of the
PTO. Therefore a thermometer (contact
type) should be used to make reasonably accurate temperature measurements.
DISASSEMBLE THE POWER TAKE-OFF:
(Refer to Figure 4 on page 32 for parts call out).
1.
Remove all accessories or drives attached to the
output shaft.
ENGAGE THE CLUTCH.
2.
3.
4.
5.
•
Disconnect any linkage that may be attached
to the clutch-actuating handle.
•
Loosen the bolt that fastens the handle to the
cross-shaft.
•
Match-mark the handle and cross shaft so
that the handle can be reinstalled at the same
place on the shaft.
•
Slide the handle off the cross shaft spline.
Remove the power take-off from the engine.
•
Attach a hoist or other suitable lifting device
to the power take-off. Attach at three points
spanning the center of gravity to hold the shaft
in a horizontal position during removal.
•
Remove the mounting bolts, removing those
located near the top last. The PTO should
separate from the flywheel housing. If the
PTO does not separate, install two 3/8”-16
UNC bolts in the threaded holes in the flange.
Tighten the bolts alternately and evenly until
the housing is removed from the engine flywheel housing pilot diameter.
•
Exercise caution when removing the PTO from
the engine to avoid damage to the grease
fittings, facing(s), and pilot bearing.
Remove the clutch from the PTO shaft.
•
Remove the pilot bearing (T25) from the drive
shaft with a bearing puller.
•
Position the PTO with the pilot bearing end
up, resting with support beneath the end of
the output shaft.
•
Bend the locking plate (T27) away from nut
(T26), and remove the nut and locking plate.
•
Place pry bars under the pressure plate. While
exerting pressure on the pry bars, strike the
end of the shaft with a soft mallet to “jar”
the clutch loose. Pull the clutch from the
shaft. Use caution not to damage the end
of the shaft.
Remove the shaft and bearings from the bearing
housing.
•
Remove the internal snapring (T11).
•
Lift the drive shaft (T8) with bearing (T9) from
the bearing housing (a hoist may be needed).
Remove the main bearings from the drive shaft.
6.
•
Wash the bearings with clean fuel oil or
solvent. Dry and carefully examine for wear,
corrosion, or rough spots. If it determined
the bearings must be replaced, remove from
shaft.
•
Remove snapring (T10).
•
Support beneath bearings (T9) on the bed of
a press.
•
Press the drive shaft from the bearing. Place
a block of wood beneath the shaft to prevent it
from being damaged as it falls loose.
Remove the cross shaft.
•
Loosen (2) bolts securing the yoke assembly
(T16) to the cross shaft.
•
Slide the cross shaft through the housing until
the yoke rests against a block of wood placed
between the yoke and the housing.
35
•
With a soft mallet, drive the cross shaft out
of the yoke just far enough to expose the two
woodruff keys (T15).
•
Remove the woodruff keys.
•
Slide or tap the cross shaft out of the yoke
and housing.
reinstalled with the worn area 180( from its
original position. Most Rockford cross shafts
are splined on both ends and may be reversed
in the housing.
•
INSPECT THE PTO COMPONENTS:
Clutch Release Yoke:
Ball Bearings: Visually examine for indications
of wear, corrosion, or pitting on balls and races.
Apply clean, lightweight engine oil and slowly
rotate the outer race while holding the inner race.
The balls must roll free. Rough or sticking spots
must be checked to be sure they are not particles
of dirt. If they are, clean and check again. If not
dirt, replace the bearing.
•
Keyways must not be worn excessively.
•
Replace if width of cradles is over .700” (17.78
mm).
Drive Shaft:
•
Pilot bearing journal must not be worn. A new
pilot bearing should have a sliding-but-snug
fit or tight fit. Finn recommends that a new
pilot bearing is installed whenever the PTO
assembly is completely taken apart.
•
Threads must not be damaged.
•
Keyways must not be worn so as to allow side
movement of keys.
•
Clutch taper should not be worn, although
a small amount of wear, if worn evenly
360˚ around the shaft may be serviceable
as long as the clutch will seat securely
and squarely and the jam nut will tighten
against the clutch body. If too much wear
has occurred the clutch will slide too far
onto the taper and the jam nut will bottom
out on the thread or shoulder before it
contacts the clutch body.
Bell Housing:
•
Check the bearing fit. Bearing races usually
are designed with a sliding or slightly snug fit
in the housing bore. They should not have
side movement in the bore. Labyrinth seal
bores at the output end of the bearing housing
should be round, not oval and should be
approximately .020”-.025” (.508mm-.635mm)
diameter larger than the drive shaft.
•
If a bearing failure has occurred, be sure
the bearing has not spun in the housing,
destroying the shoulder or bore contacted by
the bearing.
•
The mounting pilot O.D. and mounting face
must be free of protruding metal, rust corrosion etc., which would prevent the housing from
locating properly in the flywheel housing bore
or against the bearing house face. An improper fit causes misalignment. Misalignment is
a major cause of power take-off failure. The
snapring should restrict bearing movement to
.015” (.381 mm) maximum.
•
Cross shaft holes should not be worn more
than .015” (.381 mm) out of round. A little wear
does not render the parts unserviceable, but
excessive wear can cause binding of the cross
shaft under load during clutch engagement.
DISASSEMBLE THE CLUTCH:
1.
2.
Preparation for disassembly.
•
Disengage the clutch.
•
Match-mark the clutch body (H1), pressure
plate (H3), and release sleeve (H25).
Remove the release sleeve and bearing subassembly.
•
Remove the lever spring (H12).
•
Notice the direction of the clevis pins (H31
and H33) are installed. Upon reassembly of
the clutch they must be installed from the
same side so the head leads the direction
of clutch rotation.
•
Remove retainers (H34) and clevis pins (H33)
to separate the links (H30) from the levers
(H13).
Cross Shaft:
•
36
Be sure the cross shaft moves freely in the bell
housing. Remove rust or corrosion from the
cross shaft and the holes in the bell housing.
Wear on the cross shaft does not become
detrimental until it inhibits smooth rotation during clutch engagement (creates a false clutch
engagement pressure reading) or allows moisture, dirt, or other corrosives to enter the
housing. This can be prevented by ample
greasing through the grease fittings to keep
the cross shaft lubed. If the cross shaft is
excessively worn on only one side, it can be
Woodruff key slots must hold the keyways
straight. If the release yoke has been loose
on the cross shaft the keyways may have one
side worn at an angle.
3.
Disassemble the sleeve and bearing sub-assembly.
•
Remove the three retainers (H32) and clevis
pins (H31) to remove the links from the release
sleeve (H25).
4.
•
Remove the external snapring (H28) from the
release sleeve.
•
•
Using a split plate, support beneath the release
bearing (H26) on the bed of a press. Press
the release sleeve from the bearing.
Release Sleeve:
•
Remove the internal snapring (H29).
•
Tap the bearing carrier (H27) off the bearing.
Remove the levers.
•
5.
Remove and disassemble the pressure plate subassembly.
•
Lift the pressure plate sub-assembly from the
clutch body.
•
Remove the wear ring (H9) from inside the
adjusting ring.
•
Remove the adjustment lock bolt, lockwasher
and adjustment lock (H19) from the pressure

•
6.
Note the direction the clevis pins (H14) are
installed so they can be reinstalled in the same
direction. Remove three retainers (H15) and
clevis pins (H14) to separate the levers from
the clutch body.
Rotate the adjusting ring counter-clockwise to
remove it from the pressure plate.
Complete the disassembly of the clutch.
•
Remove the facing disc (H4).
•
Remove three separator springs (H36) from
the pockets in the clutch body.
INSPECT THE CLUTCH COMPONENTS:
•
No fractures should exist in the bosses.
•
Clevis pin holes must not be worn excessively.
A small amount of wear is normal and will not
be detrimental.
•
The release sleeve bore should not be worn

2 or 4 surfaces together) is approximately 1/4”
(6.35mm). Thickness of a new facing plate is
.375” (9.53mm).
Assemble the sleeve and bearing sub-assembly.
•
Install the release bearing (H26) in the bearing
carrier (H27). The fit should be a snug sliding
fit or a light press fit.
•
Install the internal snapring (H29).
•
Press the release bearing onto the release
sleeve with the snapring located on the side
nearest the three bosses of the release sleeve.
Be sure to press against the inner race of the
bearing - do not support, press or tap against
the outer race (bearing carrier). Damage to
the bearing could result.
•
Install external snapring (H28).
•
Place two links on one side of the bosses
of the release sleeve (one on either side of
the boss). The travel stop protruding from
one side of each link should point toward the
bottom of the release sleeve and must rest
against the release sleeve.
•
Install the clevis pin (H31) through both links
and the lever boss.
NOTE: The clevis pin must be installed as
previously noted so the head will lead
the direction of clutch rotation.
•
Securely install the retainer (H32) in the groove
of the clevis pin.
•
Repeat the previous 3 steps to install links on
the remaining 2 lever bosses.
2.
Assemble the clutch body sub-assembly.
•
Place the clutch body (H1) on the bench with
the friction surface up.
•
Install three separator springs (H36) in the
spring pockets of the clutch body.
•
Place one facing plate (H4) on the clutch
body.
•
Thread the adjusting ring (H9) into the pressure plate (H3) almost to the bottom of the
thread.
•
3.
38
Position the three levers (H13) in the lever
bosses with the protruding tang against the
wear ring up and the “long end” up.
•
Press down on the pressure plate to compress
the separator springs and allow the clevis pin
(H14) to be inserted through the lever and
clutch body.
Teeth must not be worn excessively or broken.
ASSEMBLE THE CLUTCH:
1.
•
Place the wear ring in the adjusting ring.
Install the release levers.
NOTE: Be sure the clevis pins are installed so
the heads will lead the direction of clutch
rotation.
•
4.
Securely install retainers (H15) on the clevis
pins.
Install the release sleeve and bearing subassembly on the clutch.
•
Position the sleeve and bearing sub-assembly
on the clutch so the links align with the levers.
•
Align the clevis pin holes and install a clevis
pin (H33) through the links and levers so the
head of the clevis pin will lead the direction
of rotation during clutch operation.
•
Securely install the retainer (H34) in the groove
of the clevis pin.
•
Repeat at remaining lever positions.
•
Install the lever spring over the release bearing. Locate a connector of the spring over
each of two levers, and then stretch the spring
to get it onto the third lever.
•
Using the drive ring as a gage, perfectly center
the facing disc(s) relative to the clutch body.
•
Engage the clutch by pressing the release
sleeve and bearing down to the stop. If
the facings are not clamped tight, disengage
the clutch, rotate the adjusting ring counterclockwise and reengage the clutch. Repeat
until the clutch is adjusted tight enough to hold
the facings aligned.
NOTE: If the facings are not perfectly aligned in
the clutch, mounting the PTO onto the
engine will be restricted by interference
between the facing teeth and the teeth of
the drive ring.
•
Insert the adjustment lock in a slot of the
adjusting ring. Install the lock bolt and lockwasher. Tighten finger tight.
NOTE: Do not disengage the clutch until after the
PTO has been mounted on the engine.
Should the facings become misaligned
repeat the procedure explained above for
aligning the facings.
ASSEMBLE THE POWER TAKE-OFF:
INSTALL THE CLUTCH ON THE DRIVE SHAFT:
1.
1.
Support the PTO under a hoist, with the output end
of the drive shaft resting on a hard wood block.
Carefully lower the clutch onto the drive shaft.
As the release bearing approaches the clutch
release yoke, rotate the yoke upward to engage
the bearing carrier trunnions in the cradles of the
release yoke.
2.
Just before the clutch becomes seated on the
taper of the drive shaft, rotate the clutch to align
the keyways and install the key 1/2 way into the
keyway.
2.
Install the main bearings on the drive shaft.
•
Support beneath the inner race of main bearing (T9) with a split plate on the bed of a
press. Insert the drive shaft, pilot bearing
end first, through the bearing. Press the shaft
into the bearing until the shaft shoulder firmly
stops against the bearing.
•
Install the external snapring (T10).
Install the drive shaft in the bearing housing.
•
Support beneath the bearing housing with the
bore up.
•
Lower the drive shaft and main bearing (output
end of the shaft first) to the bottom of the
housing bore. The fit should be slightly snug.
(Gently tap the outer race of the bearing if
necessary to seat it in the bottom of the bore.
CAUTION: Do not drive the bearing into the
housing by tapping on the shaft. To
do so may damage the roller surface
of the bearing.
•
3.
4.
Securely install the internal snapring (T11) in
the groove of the bearing housing.
NOTE: If the key is installed in the bottom of the
keyway before the clutch is completely
seated, it may restrict proper seating of
the clutch.
3.
Seat the clutch on the drive shaft.
4.
Drive the key the rest of the way into the keyway.
5.
Place the locking washer (T27) on top of the clutch.
Locate the tab in the keyway.
6.
Install and tighten nut (T26) against the locking
washer. Torque to:
6-1/2”, 7-1/2”, 8” HE 165-170 lb.-ft.(224–231 Nm)
10” and 11-1/2” HE 175-180 lb.-ft. (237–244 Nm)
11-1/2” HE(DP)
225-230 lb.-ft. (305–312 Nm)
Install the cross shaft and clutch release yoke.
•
Lubricate the cross shaft holes in the bell
housing. Slide the cross shaft (T14) through
one hole.
•
Slide the clutch release yoke (T16) onto the
cross shaft. The bolt holes (unthreaded end)
should face outward (toward the flywheel).
Slide the cross shaft through the release yoke
and into the other cross shaft hole in the bell
housing.
•
Rotate and position the cross shaft so one
keyway is exposed in the middle of the release
yoke. The other keyway will be located outside
the yoke. Install two woodruff keys (T15) in
the cross shaft.
•
Slide the cross shaft and woodruff keys into
the keyways of the release yoke until the keys
are centered on the yoke.
•
Install two bolts and lockwashers in the clutch
release yoke. Tighten and torque to 17-20 ft.
lbs. (23-27 Nm).
7.
Using a soft but heavy mallet, strike the clutch
body to drive it down onto the drive shaft. Check
the torque on the nut to be sure that it has not
loosened.
CAUTION: Be sure the drive shaft is resting
on the wood block before striking the
clutch body so the force of the impact
can be absorbed by the wood block
rather than by the bearing races.
Complete the assembly of the housing unit.
•
Install all pipe plugs and fittings to complete
assembly of the bearing housing and bell
housing.
•
Install grease fittings in the shaft and housings.

WARRANTY
Finn warrants to the original Purchaser for use (or rental to others for use) all new construction machinery and
attachments therefore manufactured by Finn to be free from defects in material and workmanship for a period of
12 months from date of purchase or 1200 hours of use, whichever comes first. Replacement parts provided under
the terms of this warranty are warranted for the remainder of the warranty period applicable to the product in which
installed, as if such parts were original components of that product. Finn makes no warranty with respect to (a)
allied equipment or trade accessories not manufactured by it (such as, but not limited to tires, ignitions, starters,
hose, batteries, magnetos, carburetors, engines or like or unlike equipment or accessories), such being subject to
the warranty, if any, provided by their respective manufactures; or (b) secondhand, used, altered, or rebuilt machines.
Further, the warranty herein expressed shall be rendered null and void to the extent any defect or failure of the products
warranted hereby arises out of or is caused by accessories or component parts not manufactured or supplied
by Finn, whether same are supplied by Purchaser, dealers or any other party. THE WARRANTY DESCRIBED
IN THIS PARAGRAPH SHALL BE IN LIEU OF ALL OTHER WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED,
INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, ANY IMPLIED WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS
FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.
Upon notification of Finn during the above-stated warranty period of any failure to conform to this warranty, and
upon inspection by Finn to verify said nonconformity and verify the continuing existence of the warranty period,
Finn will provide a new part or a repaired part, whichever Finn elects, to replace the part found to be defective.
Such parts will be provided without charge to the Purchaser during normal working hours at a place of business
of a Finn dealer or other establishment authorized by Finn to effect said repairs or replacements, but Purchaser
shall bear all costs of transporting the product to and from such place of business or establishment. Correction of
nonconformities, in the manner and for the period time provided above, shall constitute fulfillment of all liabilities
of Finn under this contract.
THE REMEDIES OF THE USER SET FORTH HEREIN ARE EXCLUSIVE, WITHOUT REGARD TO WHETHER
ANY DEFECT WAS DISCOVERABLE OR LATENT AT THE TIME OF DELIVERY OF THE PRODUCT TO
THE PURCHASER.
The essential purpose of this exclusive remedy shall be to provide the Purchaser with repair or replacement of parts
that prove to be defective within the period and under the conditions previously set forth. This exclusive remedy
shall not have failed of its essential purpose (as that term is used in the Uniform Commercial Code) provided Finn
remains willing to repair or replace defective parts within a commercially reasonable time after it obtains actual
knowledge of the existence of a particular defect.
IN NO EVENT SHALL FINN BE LIABLE FOR ANY SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, INCIDENTAL OR INDIRECT
DAMAGES, INCLUDING LOST PROFITS OR LOST COMMERCIAL OPPORTUNITIES, WITH RESPECT
TO THE SALE OF THE ABOVE WARRANTED PRODUCT OR ANYTHING DONE TN CONNECTION
THEREWITH, OR FOR PROPERTY DAMAGE SUSTAINED BY A PERSON CLAIMING TO BE A THIRD PART
BENEFICIARY OF A SURVIVING WARRANTY UNDER THE LAW OF ANY JURISDICTION.
