SPREADER CHAIN REPLACEMENT - CONTINUED
REMOVAL - CONTINUED
Step 11 is performed to remove the tensioner. This will allow the sliding beam being pulled out for
chain replacement to move without disturbing the other sliding beam. It is not necessary to remove
the tensioner from the spreader chains on both ends unless both chain are being replaced.
At other end of tophandler, measure and record distance (B) from mounting flange (24) to center of pin (12) for correct
positioning during reassembly. Remove locknut (23) from beam and tensioner (11).
