a. Preparation Prior to Cab Removal.
(1) Start engine and raise bucket one foot off ground using LIFT ARM control
lever in RAISE position then return to NEUT. position.
Using BUCKET control lever in CROWD position, rollback bucket completely
then return BUCKET control lever to NEUT. position.

and lift arm brace as shown above.
Install transport bracket, stored in tool box located in cab, on either
lift cylinder assembly rod and secure using capscrew and nut.

harness connector. After tabs are disengaged from ears, grasp wiring har-
ness connector body and firmly pull from mating connector.
