Machine Preparation - 568 GF

  1. Stop the engine.

  2. Release the pressure in the hydraulic system. Refer to Testing and Adjusting, "Hydraulic System Pressure - Release".

  3. Attach 311-1362 Vacuum Cap onto the hydraulic tank. Attach an air supply hose onto the assembly. Apply 276 to 414 kPa (40 to 60 psi). This procedure will pull a vacuum on the hydraulic system.

  4. Install the following tools in accordance with the flow meter tool layout. Refer to Illustration 2.

  5. Disconnect case drain hose (2) from elbow (3).

  6. Connect the flow meter assembly (D) between elbow (3) and case drain hose (2).

    Note: Correct orientation of the flow meter is necessary. The oil flows from swing motor (1) to swivel (4).

  7. Remove 311-1362 Vacuum Cap.

Machine Preparation - 568 LL

  1. Position the machine on level ground.

  2. Stop the engine.

  3. Release the pressure in the hydraulic system. Refer to Testing and Adjusting, "System Pressure - Release".

  4. Attach 311-1362 Vacuum Cap onto the hydraulic tank. Attach an air supply hose onto the assembly. Apply 276 to 414 kPa (40 to 60 psi). This procedure will pull a vacuum on the hydraulic system.

Test Procedure

  1. Start the engine.

  2. Place the machine controls at the following settings: engine speed dial "10" and AEC switch OFF. Refer to Testing and Adjusting, "Engine Performance - Test (Engine Speed)" for engine rpm settings.

  3. Place the hydraulic activation control lever in the UNLOCKED position.

  4. Increase the hydraulic oil temperature to 50° ± 10°C (122° ± 18°F).

  5. Slowly move the swing joystick and make sure that the swing brake is activated.

  6. Move the swing joystick fully for 1 minute. Measure the case drain oil. Refer to Table 2.

  7. Stop the engine.

  8. Connect connector (6) to the solenoid valve for the swing parking brake (5).

  9. Repeat this test procedure three times in order to obtain three measurements of case drain oil. For each test procedure, swing the upper structure to a different position.
