7.1.2 Installation Instructions
1. Disconnect the P-clips that hold the low-pressure hydraulic hoses that feed the pump
located on the transmission (These hoses are indicated in Figure 7-1).
2. Turn the low-pressure hydraulic line elbows connected to the pump on the transmission in
a clockwise fashion (tightening) up to 1/8 turn to achieve more clearance under the hoses
for the cab support (see Figure 7-1). Access to these elbows is best achieved through the
removable panel on the floor beneath the shift tower.
3. Install 8" to 9" of protective hose wrap part # 200 to each hose in the area indicated in
Figure 7-2. After the cab support
is installed, the position
of the wrap may
provide protection against wear from the support.
