Overhead Guard Replacement

0100 YRM 1735

Overhead Guard Replacement REMOVE AND INSTALL WARNING DO NOT operate the lift truck without the overhead guard correctly fastened to the lift truck.

WARNING DO NOT weld mounts for lights or accessories to legs of the overhead guard. Changes that are made by welding, or by drilling holes that are too big or in the wrong location, can reduce the strength of the overhead guard.

Remove and install the capscrews. See Figure 21. 4. Remove fender cover, dash, and kick panel to remove and install the three capscrews on front legs of overhead guard. See Hood, Seat, and Side Covers Replacement for removal procedures. 5. When installing the overhead guard, tighten the capscrews for the overhead guard legs to 66 N•m (49 lbf ft). See Figure 21.

See your dealer for Yale lift trucks BEFORE performing any changes to the overhead guard. NOTE: The lift trucks covered in this manual are equipped with either a high or low overhead guard. The removal and installation procedures for both types of overhead guards are the same. No welding or drilling on legs of overhead guard is permitted as per previous WARNING. NOTE: The lifting device can be connected to any number of positions on the overhead guard depending upon the lifting device available. The ideal choices are a four point sling connected to all four corners on the top of the overhead guard, or a two point sling connected to two opposite corners of the overhead guard. If a single point hoist is used, make sure that the lift point is as close to the center of the overhead guard. If during the initial start of the lift the overhead guard is off balance lower immediately and move the hoist to a more centered point. 1. Connect a lifting device to remove or install the overhead guard. Loosen clamp and disconnect the air intake hose from the elbow. Remove bolts, elbow, retainer, and grommet from the overhead guard rear leg. See Figure 20. 2. Disconnect any wires between the frame and the overhead guard. When the overhead guard is lifted from the frame, make sure that any electrical wires are moved through the holes in the frame so that they are not damaged. 3. The rear legs of the overhead guard have two capscrews that are located under the hood inside the engine compartment, next to the radiator.
