Re: 316 help
Carl, pictures, LOT's of pictures! Not necessarily to post here...although that would be good!..., but mainly for you when you re-asm. Next is too tag or bag the items you remove...and then identify the bag! This may sit for a week or a year before you find the parts you need and after a year, you're probably going to forget how/where some parts go!
No special processes that I'm aware of when dismantling. On re-asm, make SURE everything is absolutely clean...clean enough to eat of off! Just before asm begins, wash parts...again!... I like BrakeKleen in a spray can. Let cleaner evaporate or blow dry. DO NOT USE RAGS to wipe down prior to final asm. Rags will leave lint on the parts and the clearance in the hydraulics will be clogged by the lint. Once parts are clean & dry, coat with hyd oil and asm. If assembly is going to sit, even for a half day, cover with CLEAN plastic sheeting. Dirt/debris is the greatest enemy of a hydraulic system. Bob
