28-4. TENSION LINK REPAIR.
Remove four grease caps (1) and lube
fittings (2) from tension cylinder (3).
Perform Step (2) if bushings
There are two different types
of weld head configurations.
If there is a shoulder machined
in the weld head between the
bushings preventing the
bushings from being pressed
out, bushings must be tapped
out from inside of weld head.
If there is not a shoulder
between bushings, both
bushings can be pressed out
from one side.
Use hammer and brass drift to remove four
bushings (4) from tension link (3).
