Clean all parts thoroughly using solvent type clean-
ing fluid. It is recommended that parts be immersed
in cleaning fluid and moved up and down slowly until
all old lubricant and foreign material is dissolved and
parts are thoroughly cleaned.
CAUTION: Care should be exercised to avoid skin
rashes, fire hazards and inhalation of vapors when
using solvent type cleaners.
Remove bearings from cleaning fluid and strike flat
against a block of wood to dislodge solidified particles
of lubricant. Immerse again in cleaning fluid to flush
out particles. Repeat above operation until bearings
are thoroughly clean. Dry bearings using moisture-
free compressed air. Be careful to direct air stream
across bearing to avoid spinning. Do not spin bearings
when drying. Bearings may be rotated slowly by hand
to facilitate drying process.
Clean interior and exterior of housings, bearing caps,
etc., thoroughly. Cast parts may be cleaned in hot
solution tanks with mild alkali solutions providing these
parts do not have ground or polished surfaces. Parts
should remain in solution long enough to be thorough-
ly cleaned and heated. This will aid the evaporation of
the cleaning solution and rinse water. Parts cleaned
in solution tanks must be thoroughly rinsed with clean
water to remove all traces of alkali. Cast parts may
also be cleaned with steam cleaner.

halation of vapors and skin rashes when using alkali
