shaft. These tools will now hold the eccentric bearing and housing square with the eccentric shaft so that the
bearing and housing may be pressed onto the eccentric bearing without cocking and binding. Press the
housing all the way down onto the bearing until the bearing bottoms in the housing. Next, install the bearing
retainer with drilled head bolts and lock wire two bolts together at a time with each lock wire. A print of the
above described tools (VRF-1039A and VRF-1039B) may be obtained from Tampo on special request.
Articulated Hinged Joint
The joint is equipped with heavy-duty, self-aligning bearings which can be adjusted to take up any looseness
which may occur. Adjustment is made by turning the hex nuts (one located on top and one on bottom of hinged
joint). Adjust top and bottom nuts alternately, a little at a time, checking after each adjustment to maintain an
equal gap above and below the yoke assembly. Caution should be taken not to overtighten.
Engine Governor Setting
The engine governor has been set at 2355 rpm (no load) and 2200 rpm (full load) (Detroit Diesel 4-53 using 60
x 84 inch roll and frame with standard eccentric shaft).
