4. With assistance, align the mounting hole in the Ram (13) with the mounting hole located
in the Boom of the shop crane. Insert one Pin completely through both mounting
holes. Then, secure the Pin in place with one R-Pin. (See Figures B and C.)
5. Align the two mounting holes in the Base (1) of the Long Ram Jack with the
mounting hole located in the Pillar of the shop crane. Insert the remaining Pin
completely through the mounting holes in the Base and the Pillar. Then, secure
the Pin in place with the remaining R-Pin. (See Figures B and C.)
6. IMPORTANT: The Long Ram Jack already contains some hydraulic oil in its Reservoir (16).
Even so, it is recommended that you check the oil level in the Reservoir prior to the shop
crane’s first use and, if necessary, top off the Reservoir with the proper amount of hydraulic
oil. To do so, remove the Filler Plug (17) located on the Reservoir. Top off the Reservoir with
hydraulic oil. Make sure the Release Valve (4) is closed. Insert the Handle (21) in the Handle
Bracket (31) and slowly pump the Handle until a slight amount of oil begins to leak out of the
oil fill hole. Then, replace the Filler Plug. Make sure to test the shop crane’s performance
several times before attempting to lift an object with the crane. Once satisfied that the
crane is operating properly, then the crane is ready to lift an object. (See Figure C.)
