Boom & Attachment
Plumbing Instructions
Refer to Figure 8 on page 18
1. If the 3-point boom is being mounted on a tractor
with Great Plains side-mount tanks remove the cap
plugs on the solenoid hose barbs and route the left
boom feed-line hose from the corresponding female
fluid connector to the right solenoid (right being as
you sit in the tractor) marked with red tape. Connect
the center boom feed-line hose from the corresponding female fluid connector to the middle solenoid marked with yellow tape. Now aconite the right
feed-line hose from the corresponding female fluid
connector to the left solenoid marked with green
tape. Take care when routing the boom hoses to the
tractor to ensure there will be no kinking, drooping,
hanging bellow the tractor, or rubbing on the tractor
frame when in operation. Route boom hoses
through the remaining hose guard material along
the front side of the left-hand tank.
2. If the Great Plains side-mount tanks are being
mounted with another implement, route and connect
the hoses to the solenoid valve as described in (1)
above.
Tractor / PTO Pump Hook-Up
1. With the tractor not running, position the PTO pump
on the tractor’s PTO shaft with the coupler bolt loose
on the splined end.
2. Push the coupler of the pump on to align with notch
in the tractor PTO shaft and install bolt.
Tractor / Hydraulic Pump Hook-Up
1. Your tractor should be equipped with at least two remote outlets (one pair).
2. If your tractor has an open-center hydraulic system,
remove the orifice restrictor in the pressure line. If
your open-center hydraulic system produces more
than 15 GPM, it is not recommended to hook this hydraulic pump up to your tractor. Without a flow divider of adequate capacity the pump will spin too fast. If
your open-center hydraulic system is 15 GPM or
less, it is recommended to install a hydraulic flow divider so that you can adjust the speed of the pump.
A Gresen model number CFDA or similar flow divider will work. The maximum flow for the hydraulic motor is 6 GPM.
3. For the hydraulic motor to turn in the right direction,
the pressure hose must be connected to the "A" port
of the motor and the return line connected to the "B"
port. Install hydraulic hose clamp label provided {refer to hydraulic pump section in parts manual}
approximately18 inches from tractor quick couplers
so that the hydraulic cylinder retract symbol and arrow aligns with the pressure hose going to motor
port "A". If your tractor is a John Deere, leave the
restrictor in the pressure side of the hydraulic pump.
If your tractor has a closed center hydraulic system
and is not a John Deere, remove the restrictor.
4. If your tractor has a closed-center system, or a flow
divider has been installed in your tractor’s open-center system, set the hydraulic flow control valve at a
minimum flow for the pair of outlets that operates the
pump.
3. Make sure there is adequate hose length to reach
the pump.
5. With water in the sprayer tank, and water in the
pump, place the hydraulic lever in the float position
and start the tractor.
4. If you have a 540 RPM pump or a 1000 RPM 1 3/8
inch spline pump, torque the 1/2 inch Grade 8 coupler bolts to 105 ft-lbs. If you have a 1000 RPM
1 3/4 inch spline PTO pump, torque the 5/8 inch
Grade 8 coupler bolt to 210 ft-lbs and the other 1/2
inch Grade 8 coupler bolt to 105 ft-lbs.
6. Place a stop in the neutral position of your tractor hydraulics so that the lever can only be moved to the
float and down positions. Refer to your tractor operator’s manual or tractor dealer on information for the
neutral stop.
5. Rotate the PTO shaft by hand to make sure the bolts
clear the PTO shielding.
6. Attach the torque bar chain to the drawbar securely.
7. Hook the tarp strap in such a way that the slack in
the chain is taken up slowly when the PTO is engaged so the torque bar does not bang.
8. Tie up any loose hoses with cable ties to prevent
hose damage.
500-052M
IMPORTANT: DO NOT move the hydraulic lever into
the neutral position while the hydraulic pump is running. To do so may cause damage to the hydraulic
pump.
7. To set the hydraulic flow control on the tractor, first
engage the pump by placing the hydraulic lever in
the down position. Once the system builds pressure,
close the agitation valve, shut off the boom section
switches and close throttling valves {if applicable}.
5/13/2003
Preparation and Setup 21
Sprayers with Raven Automatic Monitors do not
have throttling valves. The pump is now at dead
head pressure. Adjust the hydraulic flow control
valve so that the spray pressure reaches 80 PSI
maximum on the nozzle pressure gauge. If so
equipped, reset the solenoid throttling valves as described in the "Solenoid Throttling Valve" on
page 51.
Quad-Jet Agitators {Stainless Steel

4. Hook up the electric solenoid cord (5) to the solenoid plug (6). You may need to use the extension
cord included to reach the solenoid valves more
easily. Turn the master switch on and flip the boom
section switches to see if the solenoids are operating properly. The left boom switch should operate
the front solenoid, the center boom switch should
operate the middle solenoid, and the right boom
switch should operate the rear solenoid. If the
switches don’t correspond with the correct solenoids, check your electric cord assembly in step 3,
or the wiring of the control box under "Control Box
Wiring Assembly Instructions" on page 23.
5. Attach the electric ball valve cord (7) to the terminals
(8) on the electric ball valve.
6. Hook up the electric ball valve cord (7) to the ball
valve plug (9). You may need to use the extension

Tractor Mount Sprayer
Operating Instructions
Basic Sprayer Operating
Procedures
11. Take note of adjoining crops, houses, gardens, people, etc.
1. Make sure to read the label on the chemical compound that is to be applied. It is the law.
12. When you are finished spraying, empty the tank and
flush the sprayer with water, including the pump, the
nozzles and the bypass line from the solenoids.
Properly store the chemical emptied from the tank or
dispose of it by the recommendations on its label.
2. Consider how the chemical will be stored and how
you will dispose of the chemical, according to the
chemical label.
3. When calibrating, filling the tank, or working around
chemicals, wear protective clothing that covers the
body. Refer to "Personal Safety Equipment" on
page 5. Have soap and clean water available to
wash any exposed areas. Never open a container
with your bare hands.
4. When filling the sprayer, it is better to mix the chemical in the field where it is to be applied. Position the
sprayer 100 feet from any well or other water source
BEFORE mixing chemical.
5. By law, you must repeat the rinsing of the chemical
container 3 times. The container should then be
punctured to prevent future use. An alternative is to
jet-rinse or pressure rinse the container.
6. Check the condition of hoses and connections frequently. Release system pressure BEFORE working on the sprayer by shutting off the pump and
flipping the individual boom section switches on the
control box. ALWAYS wear rubber gloves when
making repairs or adjustments.
7. If equipped with level-float boom, remove the level
float pin and place in the storage position after unfolding the boom. Refer to your Great Plains Boom
Manual for more information.
Note: If possible, do not operate your Great Plains
Sprayer Boom without first unlocking the level-float pin.
The boom will float over the contours of the ground more
effectively and minimize stress on the boom.
13. When turning at the end of a field, make sure you
are correct on the rows so that the boom will not
overlap on crop previously sprayed.
Plumbing Operations {Manual Control System Only}
The basic plumbing diagrams are shown for the tractor
mount plumbing. A basic knowledge of how the sprayer
is plumbed will help you to understand how to operate
you Great Plains Sprayer. Throughout this manual, the
components on this diagram will be described with the
terminology labeling these components. For further details about the plumbing components, refer to the parts
manual.
Fluid is drawn out of the sump in the tank and passes
through the pump. From the pump it passes through the
solution Whirlfilter® and filters out or grinds up all undissolved chemical and solid particles. The fluid then
passes through the agitation ball valve or proceeds
through the electric pressure adjustment ball valve. If the
fluid passes through the electric ball valve, it proceeds to
the 3-way solenoid valves. If a solenoid valve is on, the
fluid passes to its perspective boom section and is
sprayed out the individual nozzles. If that solenoid is off,
the fluid bypasses back into the pump inlet.
9. Drive at the same speed you used in your calibration. Refer to "Sprayer Calibrations" on page 28.
Keep your sprayer calibrated.
You can monitor the nozzle pressure gauge and adjust
the pressure to the booms by adjusting the pressure
switch on the control box. The pressure switch rotates
the electric ball valve. To decrease the sensitivity of the
pressure adjustment switch the manual pressure adjustment valve must be set. To set this valve, run the pump
at the same rpm you would when spraying. Open the
electric ball valve completely and adjust the manual
pressure adjustment valve down so that the nozzle pressure gauge reads 10 to 20 psi greater than the pressure
you will spray at. This will decrease the amount of flow to
the electric ball valve and reduce its sensitivity.
10. If possible work crosswise to the wind, starting from
the downwind side of the field. Do this so you won’t
ever be heading directly into chemical fumes.
Note: When pressure is increased at a later date, the
manual pressure adjustment valve will need to be
opened.
8. Apply spray when the wind is 5 m.p.h. or less. Minimize drift by using nozzle tips with the largest practical openings and by operating the sprayer boom at
the lowest practical height and lowest practical pressure.
500-052M
5/13/2003
Operating Instructions 25
The agitation can be set by adjusting the agitation pressure valve while the pump is at operating speed. Adjust
the valve until you get the desired agitation pressure you
would like on the agitation pressure gauge.
There are tank shut off valves everywhere there is an
outlet from the tank so that if there is a leak, the source
can be shut off and the chemical spill reduced. These
valves need to be wide open when the sprayer is in use.
IMPORTANT: Do not move the hydraulic lever to the
neutral position while the hydraulic pump is running.
To do so may cause damage to the hydraulic pump.
Filling Tank Procedures
!
CAUTION
When filling the sprayer tank, use a check valve or anti-siphon
device to prevent the solution in the tank from infiltrating into
the fresh water source and contaminating it.
Your Great Plains Sprayer fills the tank from the bottom
of the tank and uses a standard 2 inch Cam-Lock coupler to connect to the freshwater hose. An 1 1/2 inch
camlock coupler is also available as an accessory. Refer
to "Quick Fill Assembly" in the parts manual.
1.
To fill the tank, hook up the freshwater hose to the
quick-fill camlock coupler with the quick-fill ball valve
in the closed position.
2. Turn the water on and open the quick-fill ball valve
for the freshwater to enter the tank. When using a
positive displacement pump to fill the tank, open the
quick fill ball valve first and then pump water into the
tank.

acre {One ounce discharge per nozzle equals one
gallon per acre}
This method gives you the distance driven to cover
1/128 acre {because there are 128 ounces per gallon}.
The time required to drive that distance is measured
first, and the volume of spray in ounces caught in the
time you measured is your application rate in gallons per
acre. From the chart below, determine the distance to
drive in the field {three runs are suggested} to obtain
your average time in seconds. You will generally use 15,
20, or 30 inch nozzle spacing on standard booms.
1. Determine your nozzle size, spacing, and pressure
to achieve your desired rate from the application
guide.
2. Measure the nozzle spacing on your boom and determine the distance to drive to calibrate your sprayer.
3. Mark off the distance with two markers provided, tie
twine at distance needed for nozzle spacing {Table
#1} and time how many seconds it takes to drive this
distance at the speed you will be spraying at. Make
sure you are at spraying speed when you cross both
marks. Two or more runs are suggested with the
sprayer half full. Simulate your field conditions to
take into account wheel slippage.

4. With the sprayer filled with water {no chemical added}, park in an open area with the booms unfolded.
Prepare to collect samples at the individual nozzles.
Turn on the pump and run it at the operation pressure. If applicable, correctly set the solenoid throttling valves. Refer to “Solenoid Throttling Valve”
on page 51. Flip on the boom section switch{es} on
the control box and catch the water being sprayed
out of the nozzle{s} with cup provided as you are calibrating.
5. Measure the volume of the sample in ounces over
the time it took to travel the distance in Step #3. The
number of ounces caught is the exact number of gallons per acre you will apply with that perspective
nozzle.
EXAMPLE #1: With a 20 inch spacing, it took 28 seconds to travel the 204 feet {refer to Table #1}. Using a
MeterCone® 1.875 nozzle at 35 psi, the volume caught
in 28 seconds was 21 ounces. This illustrates you would
apply 21 gallons per acre with this nozzle.
EXAMPLE #2: With a 30 inch spacing, it took 15 seconds to travel 136 feet {refer to Table #1}. Using a
TeeJet XR11003 nozzle at 30 psi, the volume caught in
15 seconds was 13 ounces. This means you will apply
13 gallons per acre with the XR11003 nozzle at the
same ground speed as when you drove the 136 feet.
Step 2: Place graduated container, provided with boom
calibration kit, under one nozzle and catch the discharge
for 1 minute. Divide 128 into the number of fluid ounces
caught. 128 fluid ounces equals one gallon. EXAMPLE:
64 ounces caught in one minute.
64.0 ÷ 128 = 0.50 gallons/minute
Step 3: Net determine your nozzle spacing in inches.
EXAMPLE: 1 nozzle every 40".

The above information will assure you of a check for accurate application in the event there is an error in the
gauge nozzle spacing, nozzle height, tractor speed or
nozzle wear.
Miles Per Hour Calibration
To determine true ground speed, use Table #2 with the
sprayer half-filled with water.
When measuring the MPH of your tractor, always simulate current field conditions as close as possible, taking
care to account for wheel slippage.
See application chart when M.P.H. is obtained.
Basic Sprayer Calibration
To double check the accuracy of your Great Plains
Sprayer, the following instructions provide another
method of calibration:
Step 1: Measure 200 feet and determine the number of
seconds required to travel this distance under field conditions with implements in working condition.
EXAMPLE: It takes 27 seconds to travel the 200 feet
which equals 5 mph.

Information
1. Determine nozzle size and desired spraying pressure using this application guide.
2. Find fluid ounces per minute (OPM) in Table #3 or
Table #4.
3. Catch flow at pressure desired for 1 minute {for large
nozzles catch the flow for 30 seconds and multiply
by 2}.
4. If the OPM caught are within the + limit in the chart
on page 31, the nozzle is accurate and G.P.A. charts
should be followed.
5. If the nozzle is not within the + limit, check for obstructions or wear in the orifices of the nozzle. Take
the cap off the nozzle, clean the orifices with a toothpick or brush and retest. If several nozzles test the
same, but are not within the + limits, a faulty gauge
may be the problem. If two or more nozzles are outside the limit, it is a good indication that all your nozzles may be worn. In this case, it would be advisable
to replace ALL the nozzles with new nozzles.

Spraying Solutions Other Than
Water
Useful Formulas
Calculations are based on spraying water, which weighs
8.34 pounds per US gallon. The following conversion
factors must be used when spraying solutions which are
heavier or lighter than water. In order to determine the
proper size nozzle for the solution to be sprayed, multiply the desired GPM or GPA of solution by the water rate
conversion factor. Then use the new converted GPM or
GPA rate to select the proper size nozzle.

Table 5: Density Conversion Table
EXAMPLE: It is desired to apply 22 GPA {gallons per
acre} of nitrogen in 30" rows. {28% N, density is 10.65 lb/
gal from the chart above}
From theTable 5, “Density Conversion Table,”, the conversion factor is 1.13.
GPA {Solution} x Conversion Factor = GPA
(22 gal/acre) (1.13) = 24.86 gal/acre
To choose a nozzle and a pressure, use 24.86 gal/acre
on the nozzle charts.

Let’s assume you are using TeeJet® XR8006 nozzles
and want to spray at 40 psi pressure. From the nozzle

travel.
If the value of 24.86 GPA is not an exact number shown
on the nozzle chart. Interpolation to find an exact figure
in needed. Interpolation is simple once you have an understanding of how it works {don’t be intimidated}. From
the XR8006 nozzle chart at 30" spacing and 40 psi 24.86

at 5 mph.

Difference
Basically, you need to find the percentage that 24.86
GPA is between 23.76 GPA & 29.70 GPA. To do this,
take a factor of the differences.
24.86 - 29.70 = -4.84 = 0.81or 81%
23.76 - 29.70
-5.94
In order to find the value for the mph that is 81% between 4 mph & 5 mph, take the fraction 0.81 times the
difference in miles per hour.
(0.81) (1 mph) = 0.81 mph
Therefore, the speed of travel needed is:
4 mph + 0.81 = 4.81 mph
From the same example, determine the pressure needed to spray at 5 mph. From the XR8006 chart at 30",
24.86 GPA falls between 25.15 GPA at 45 psi and 23.76

If you are using a nozzle spacing different than 15”, 20”,
or 30”, you will need to convert the values in the nozzle

Adjustments 51
General Field Adjustments
Boom Height
After calibrating your sprayer for the specific nozzle you
will use at a desired pressure, and tractor speed, the
main field adjustment is the boom height. Depending on
which type of nozzle you are using, you need to set your
boom height so that you achieve the correct overlap for
that specific nozzle. If the crop canopy is taller in some
fields than others, you will need to adjust the boom
height accordingly. Refer to the nozzle charts located in
this manual to determine the height of the boom needed.
To set the three solenoid throttling valves complete
the following:
Refer to Figure 13
1. Loosen the lock collar and adjust all three of the
throttling valves until they are closed.
EXAMPLE: A 2.5 MeterCone® nozzle at 20 inch spacing
is being used. From the nozzle chart {refer to the Adjustments section of this manual or the Application Guide}, a
height of 19 to 21 inches above the top of the crop is required. If the crop is 6 inches off the ground, the boom
height should be set to 25 to 27 inches off the ground.
Nozzle Pressure
Another area that will need some field adjustments is the
nozzle pressure. As your tank level decreases, you may
have to adjust the boom pressure to keep the pressure
at the same magnitude for what the sprayer was calibrated for if your sprayer is not equipped with a monitor.
Watch your pressure gauge and be aware of changes in
the pressure.
Solenoid Throttling Valve {Manual
Control System Only}
The electric solenoids used to turn on the individual
boom sections are three way valves. These valves route
the flow to the boom sections or back into the tank, depending on whether the boom section switches on the
control box are turned on or off.
When a boom section switch is turned to the off position,
the electric solenoid for that switch diverts the flow back
into the inlet of the pump. {Refer to "Plumbing Diagrams" beginning on page 24}. To insure that the flow
going to the boom section and the flow going back to the
inlet of the pump are the same, a throttling valve is used
to adjust the flow going to the inlet of the pump. If these
flows were not equal, every time the boom section
switch if flipped, the pressure will either rise or decrease
in the other boom sections, causing the sprayer to over
or under apply chemical in those boom sections.

2. Turn all the boom section switches on with the tank
filled with water {no chemical added} and the pump
running. Adjust the boom pressure until the boom
pressure gauge reaches the selected calibration
pressure.
3. Turn the left boom section switch off and keep the
center and right section switches on. Unscrew the
throttling valve for the left boom section until the
pressure on the boom pressure gauge reaches the
calibration pressure. Flip the left boom section
switch a few times and adjust the throttling valve so
that the pressure remains at the selected calibration
pressure.
4. Turn the left boom section switch on. With the left
and right boom sections on, turn the center boom
section off and adjust the throttling valve as described in step 3.
5. Adjust the throttling valve for the right boom section
with the left and center boom sections on as described in step 3.
6. With all throttling valves adjusted, it should be possible to flip any combination of boom section switches with the pressure remaining constant.
500-052M

Tractor Mount Sprayer
Pressure Adjustments {Manual Control System Only}
erally, the boom pressure will need to be adjusted up
slightly when the tank level decreases.
One of the most important areas of controlling the sprayer accuracy is to have the proper pressure when
spraying. The pressure is determined when the sprayer
is calibrated. Refer to "Calibration Procedures", starting on page 28.
When the manual pressure adjustment valve {refer to
"Plumbing Diagrams" beginning on page 24} is wide
open, the pressure adjust switch is very sensitive. To decrease the sensitivity of the pressure adjust, set the
manual pressure adjustment valve.
The electric ball valve is used to adjust the pressure to
the booms. It is controlled with the pressure adjust
switch on the control box. The boom pressure is displayed by the boom pressure gauge.
To set the manual pressure adjustment valve, open the
electric ball valve wide open with the pressure adjustment switch. Shut the manual pressure adjustment valve
down so the pressure is about 20 psi greater than the
pressure you will spray at {the pressure the spray will be
applied at is determined when you calibrate your sprayer. Refer to "Calibration Procedures" on page 28}.
With this valve set, it will decrease the flow through the
electric ball valve and reduce the sensitivity of the pressure adjustment switch.
To adjust the pressure, hold the pressure adjust toggle
switch up for more pressure, down for less pressure. If
holding the switch up decreases pressure, reverse wires
at the ball valve. Refer to Figure 11 on page 22 (8).
As the tank level decreases, the boom pressure may
change. Check your boom pressure gauge frequently
and make sure that the pressure doesn’t change. Gen-

Maintenance and Lubrication
Maintenance
Proper servicing and adjustment is the key to the long
life of any farm implement. With careful and systematic
inspection, you can avoid costly maintenance, time and
repair.
Equipment Cleanup
Nozzles should be cleaned with a low pressure {less
than 30 psi} air hose, and periodically replaced. Haul a
supply tank of water so you can clean the spray tank and
applicator out in the field. NEVER wash tank out in the
yard or at a car wash. Rinse out tank and spray the rinse
water on the last field that was sprayed.
Dispose of leftover chemical in the same manner described on the manufacturer’s label of the chemical last
used in the sprayer. Rinse out the tank and spray the
rinse water on the last field that was sprayed.
Flush the sprayer with fresh water and spray the water in
the field that was last sprayed. While the sprayer is being
flushed at the field, turn the boom section switches "on"
to flush the nozzles, then turn them "off" to flush out the
throttling valves and bypass lines {if equipped}. Repeat
this procedure several times. Periodically clean each
throttling valve by unscrewing its gray knob until it stops.
Flush it with the fresh water by operating the pump with
the boom section switches "off". Reset the solenoid
throttling valves as described in "Solenoid Throttling
Valve" on Page 51.
The boom pressure gauge has a ball valve that is used
to clean out any chemical that has built up under the
gauge protector. With the sprayer tank full of water and
the pump running, open the ball valve and allow the water to run in a bucket. After the liquid coming out of the
hose turns clear, turn off the ball valve and dump the
contents of the bucket into the sprayer tank.
General Information
If equipment is to be used in freezing or near freezing
conditions, protect pump and plumbing system by thoroughly draining liquid and pumping antifreeze {Great
Plains strongly recommends the use of recreational vehicle antifreeze} solution through the plumbing system.
Before working on, servicing or making adjustments on
sprayer, ALWAYS disengage power, shut off tractor engine, make sure all moving parts have stopped, and all
pressure in the system is relieved.
500-052M
Check the conditions of hoses and connections frequently. Release the system pressure BEFORE working
on the sprayer. To release the pressure flip the boom
section switches on an off without the pump running.
ALWAYS wear rubber gloves when making repairs or
adjustments. Make sure all "Personal Safety Equipment" {gloves, goggles, etc.} listed on Page 5, are
stored in an easily accessible place but protected from
potential contamination from dust or chemicals.
Check the sprayer for any loose bolts, pins, and hose
clamps.
Check the hoses, pumps, valves, and fittings for any
leaks.
Inspect all parts of the sprayer for wear and rust. Repair
and paint parts as necessary.
Pump Maintenance & Repair
This Great Plains pump is designed for long life and service. Through the years, there may be a need to replace
the mechanical seal or service some component of the
pump. A mechanical seal may weep slightly, but if it
starts to drip, the pump will have to be disassembled.
Before you disassemble the pump, be sure to wash it out
with fresh water.
The following is an instruction list for how to reassemble
the pump after it has been disassembled and repaired.
Refer to the parts manual for the components of the
pump.
Refer to Figure 14
If your pump is leaking, before you remove it from the
sprayer, run the pump with adequate water in the tank to
diagnose the actual pump problem. If fluid leaks out between the front suction housing (5) and the rear volute
housing (8), the housing gasket may be dried out. Give
the gasket (6) adequate time to absorb moisture and
swell up. If necessary, retighten the volute housing (8) by
alternating on opposite sides until all nuts (9) are
torqued to 16 - 18 ft.-lbs. It is a good practice to apply
grease to both sides of the gasket (6) to prevent
shrinkage.
If seal replacement is required:
1. Disassemble pump and clean all components.
2. Assemble the ceramic ring seat of the mechanical
seal (7) into the volute housing (8) of the pump.
Make sure the ceramic seat is positioned square
into the volute housing.
5/13/2003
Maintenance and Lubrication 55
3. Clean off any grease or dirt from the pump shaft (10)
and dry the shaft so the rubber bellows on the mechanical seal will adhere to the shaft properly when
assembled.
6. Assemble the seal’s spring and the impeller, being
careful not to move the mechanical seal that has
been positioned on the pump shaft. Torque the impeller bolt (1) 16 - 18 ft./lbs.
4. Bolt up the pump input bearing housing (not shown)
to the volute housing (8) using bolts (2), (3) and (4)
with spacers (not furnished) for alignment and assembly of the shaft seal.
7. Remove the three bolts and spacers. Using gun
grease, lubricate the gasket (6). Assemble the gasket (6) and suction housing (5) using bolts, flat washers and locknuts. Torque nuts 16 - 18 ft./lbs.
5. Assemble the seal (7) without its spring, on the
pump shaft by pushing on the inside rubber portion
of the seal using water as the lubrication. The graphite seal face should touch the white ceramic seat
face. The rubber bellows adhering to the pump shaft
should not protrude more than 1/16" beyond the
stainless steel ring located on the impeller side of
the seal.

3. Clean out Whirlfilters®. Refer to "Operating Whirlfilter®" on Page 26.
8. Inspect all parts of the sprayer for wear and rust. Repair and paint parts as necessary.
4. Circulate 3 - 5 gallons of antifreeze {Great Plains
strongly recommends the use of recreational vehicle
antifreeze} through the system including the pump,
hoses and nozzles. Drain the sprayer and properly
dispose of antifreeze.Keep antifreeze in the pump to
prevent gasket shrinkage.
9. Store the sprayer in a dry area away from direct sunlight.
