Step 3.
Use a nipple for side outlet or combination of nipples and elbows for bottom outlet to achieve minimum oil level in bearing housing. I.D. of pipe must be deburred as well as pipe tap on bearing housing to remove all burrs, hanging particles, etc (FIG 3).

Step 4.
Make sure tapped hole in bearing housing (FIG 4) is tapped square to face so that nipple will be in a horizontal plane. Top of tap drill should be equal to oil level to be maintained.

Step 5.
Use teflon filled pipe dope, not tape on threaded ends of nipple/pipe. Tape can break off into tiny shavings, thus contaminating bearing of shaft and will result in machine failure.

Tighten nipple into bearing housing (5a) using wrench or pliers to tighten.

Use open end wrench to tighten lower base (5b) onto nipple. Wipe excess pipe dope off threads.

Step 6.
Invert reservoir to fill through spout (FIG 6). When full hold thumb over spout, invert over base and screw in finger tight. You may prefill, but final oil level must be established by spout on reservoir.

Step 7.
Check all joints for leaks and determine that oil is up to desired level (FIG 7). Units are shipped with 0.22 minimum fill level. To raise the fill level, back off the adjustment body (1b) to the desired level, and turn the locknut (1c) to lock body in place.
