To assemble the snow plow, proceed in the following sequence:
1. Assemble the push bar assembly to the rear of the rotor housing using 2 hex cap screws 1/2" - 13 x 2-1/2" 1g. and 2 hex nuts
1/2-13 as shown in figure 1.
2. Assemble the skid shoes to each side of the rotor housing as shown in figure 2.
3. Assemble the drift cutters in place on each side of the rotor housing as shown in figure 3.
4. Apply a coating of light oil to the neck of the discharge spout mounting collar and install the spout in place on the rotor housing as shown in figure 4. The application of oil is necessary to prevent rust and to allow the spout to rotate freely. Clamp
"V" belt around spout as shown in figure 4, and loop belt around adjusting pulley. To adjust tension of
"V" belt, turn the hex nut at point "A" in Figure 4. Avoid excessive tension.
