TOP AND BOTTOM BEAM AND HYDRAULIC LIFT
CYLINDER REMOVAL / INSTALLATION
DO NOT disconnect hydraulic lines and fittings while engine is running or before
hydraulic system pressure has been released. When engine is running, hydraulic
system is under pressure. Dolly set must be fully lowered on to the blocks and
the engine must be shut down before lines and fittings are disconnected. A line
or fitting disconnected under pressure will explode with great force and cause
serious injury or death to personnel.
Escaping hydraulic fluid under pressure can penetrate the skin, causing serious
injury to personnel. Relieve pressure before disconnecting hydraulic lines and
fittings. Tighten all connections before applying pressure. Keep hands and body
away from pinholes and nozzles that eject hydraulic fluid under high pressure.
Use a piece of cardboard or paper to search for leaks. If any hydraulic fluid is
injected into the skin, it MUST be surgically removed within a few hours by a
doctor familiar with this type of injury or gangrene may result.
Procedures are the same for front and rear dollies. Rear dolly is illustrated.
