Coat spindle seal (1) with lubricating oil.
Install spacer (3) and spindle (4) in geared hub (2).

Ensure locktab on lockwasher is bent completely into slot on
retaining nut. Eight-slotted retaining nut provides additional
security by enabling two locktabs on lockwasher to be bent into
slots on retaining nut. Failure to do this may cause injury to per-
sonnel or damage to equipment.
For new configuration, two locktabs on lockwasher must be
bent into slots on retaining nut.
It may be necessary to slightly loosen or tighten retaining nut
to gain proper alignment with locktabs.
Determine which locktab(s) (10) on lockwasher (8) aligns with slot(s) (11) in retaining nut (9). Bend
locktab(s) (10) into slot(s) (11) on retaining nut (9).
