Use caution when handling heavy parts. Provide adequate support and use assistance during
procedure. Ensure that any lifting device used is in good condition and of suitable load
capacity. Keep clear of heavy parts supported only by lifting device. Failure to follow this
warning may cause injury or death.
Ensure steering pivot assembly, rear frame, bearing, and race surfaces are clean and dry
prior to installation. Contamination of these systems could result in premature failure.
Apply a sufficient amount of clean grease to bearings and race prior to installation.
If removed, install bearing (Figure 6, Item 3) and race (Figure 6, Item 4) as a unit and two bearings
(Figure 6, Item 2) into steering pivot assembly (Figure 6, Item 1).
Weight of steering pivot assembly is 295 lb (134 kg).
