- To indicate the relationship of the two positions, put a mark (C) on the inner race and the outer race of the swing bearing. The mark will be used as a target to stop the swing operation. Refer to Illustration 2.
- The bucket should be empty.
- Move the swing joystick in either direction until the machine completes a 180 degree swing operation away from the target.
- Move the swing joystick in either direction until the machine completes a 180 degree swing operation toward the target. Return the swing joystick to the NEUTRAL position at the target.
- Measure the amount of overswing by measuring the distance between the marks on the swing bearing. Refer to Illustration 2.
Note: Use a point that is visible from the operator seat as a reference point for the target.
