Using a floor jack or 12-ton jack, raise axle high enough so that wheel assemblies (3 and 2) can
be mounted on axle.
Install wheel assemblies (3 and 2) and 10 nuts (1).
If flange nuts cannot be torqued, at first opportunity have
Organization Maintenance torque flange nuts to proper
specifications. See Item 3 under Installation. Periodically stop and
check flange nuts for tightness if not properly torqued initially. This
will cause the wheel assembly to separate, resulting in injury to
personnel and damage to equipment.
To insure secure seating of wheel assembly, see Appendix H-22 for
correct torquing sequence.
Lower wheel assemblies (3 and 2) to the ground and torque 10 nuts (1) to 450500 lb-ft (610678
Nm) of torque.
Follow -On Tasks.
Remove all jacks/stands.
Connect semitrailer to prime mover (if required).
Raise landing legs (if required).
Remove/store tire chocks and ground boards.
