4.2 GENERAL INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
These Installation Instructions will provide the illustration directly after that
installation callout, and the text will be on either the same page or the facing
page, where practical. All necessary information, torque values, tool numbers,
and materials used will be provided so that the unit can be assembled without
reference to another part of the installation instructions. Prior to installation,
check the envelope on the back cover for any supplemental instructions.
Any variant configurations may require alternate fastener lengths. These
fasteners are found in the Extra Fastener Kit, P/N 111444.
a. Before beginning the assembly of a part, remove all corrosion-preventative
compound (if any) and any accumulated foreign matter.
b. All nuts, bolts, and screws used in the installation of the Kit must be coated with
Loctite 242 thread lock adhesive and tightened to standard torque values, unless
otherwise stated. The locknuts supplied with the Kits do not require Loctite 242.
A list of standard thread / pitch sizes and the corresponding torque values are
provided in Appendix A.
