The levelwind is used to evenly wrap the hose onto the winch drum. Due to the traveler head (unit with 4 vertical
and one horizontal rollers) motion limitations, it is extremely critical that the levelwind track base be accurately positioned
relative to the winch base.
The plan and elevation views of the Levelwind are presented in Figure 6-3. The relative position of the
Levelwind foundation to the winch foundation is presented in Figure 6-4. Note that the critical positioning dimensions are
denoted with an "*", The suggested procedures for the Levelwind installation is as follows:
Attach bolt-on weld-down brackets (2 pcs.) to the Levelwind track with eight 3/4-
10 UNC bolts 2-1/2-inch long with nut and lock washer.
Position levelwind track/Foundation relative to winch foundation as shown in
Extreme care should be taken when handling the Levelwind. Weight and CG are not evenly
Weld bolt-on weld-down brackets (2 pcs) to deck. Note that the bracket material
