  2. Use 3M Spray Lube 08878 or equivalent to lubricate the threaded rod and the nut bearing assemblies.
  3. Slide the bushing into the left side of the front motor mount so that the shorter cavities are horizontal on the bushing.

    Tip: Draw a reference line on the bushing prior to installation to aid with orientation.

  8. Thread the second nut bearing assembly onto the other end of the threaded rod until it lightly touches the driver.
  9. Adjust the assembly until the front bushing cup is seated flush against the front motor mount.
  10. Place a 1 in (24 mm) ratchet wrench onto each nut bearing assembly.
  11. Alternate rotating the ratchet wrenches to push the driver towards the front bushing cup until the bushing is aligned with the machined face of the motor mount (the bushing is slightly visible from the right side of the front motor mount).

    Caution: If the effort required to rotate the ratchet wrenches is excessive, the tool is misaligned and continued ratcheting could cause damage. Loosen the nut bearing assemblies on the threaded rod, add lubrication to the threaded rod, realign the parts, and begin again.
