To enable the two independent chains to lift the bottom block evenly, the large gears and load sheaves must first be
timed as illustrated. Then both gears must be timed simultaneously with the shaft pinions. This timing procedure is only
necessary when the gears have been disengaged during disassembly. Fig. 3.
When replacing load chain, the two chains must be exactly the same length. The starting chain lint on each chain must
be simultaneously fed into the two lifting load sheaves. The starting links will pass over the top of the load sheave in a
horizontal position to permit end attachment without twisting the chain. The second link of chain will be a standing link of
chain; this link should have the weld further away from the center of the load sheave. Fig. 3.
