STEERING CONTROL REASSEMBLY
Be extremely careful that the parts do not cock out of position while entering. Push parts gently into place with
slight rotating motion (refer to Fig. 36). Bring the spool assembly entirely within the housing bore until the parts
are flush at the meter end or 14-hole end of the housing. Do not pull the spool assembly beyond this point to
prevent the cross pin from dropping into the discharge groove of the housing. With the spool assembly in this
flush position, check for free rotation within the housing by turning with light finger force at the splined end
(refer to Fig. 37).
Hold the parts in this flush position and rest the 14-hole end of the assembly on the protective block on the vise
throat and clamp lightly across the port face with the vise.
It is good service policy to replace all seals when unit is reassembled. They are
available in kit form part no. 5140.
Check the condition of the O-ring seal on the check plug and replace it if necessary. Install the check plug in
the check hole with a steady pressure while rocking it slightly so that the O-ring feeds in smoothly without
cutting (refer to Fig. 38 and 39).
