3.0 Safety Information


FO C

Make sure all personnel involved with this tripod jack read and understand these instructions
before using jack.
N

WARNING: Each jack is operated independently and aircraft must be raised evenly to provide
U

stability. Failure to use safe jacking practices may result in equipment damage and
injury to personnel. Personnel not involved in jacking the aircraft must remain clear
of the immediate area. Other work should not be performed until jacking is
completed and aircraft is stabilized. Do not work under suspended loads unless
required. Failure to follow strict safety precautions may result in equipment damage
and injury or death to personnel. When jacking operations are completed and
aircraft is stabilized, necessary personnel may complete required maintenance
actions under aircraft.

The jack is designed to lift only vertical loads with a maximum weight of 5 tons
(10,000 pounds). Do not use jack for lifts exceeding the weight or design limits.
Failure to comply can result in injury or death to personnel and/or severe damage to
the jack and aircraft.

If not on concrete, it may be necessary to place a flat steel plate under footpads to distribute jack
IG

bearing pressure.

FO C

6.3 Unscrew the screw extension as required.

6.4 Close release valve.


N

6.5 Operate pump to extend rams until contact is made with load lift point and screw extension
U

adapter, with no pressure applied.

6.6 Rotate jack approximately 15 in any direction to minimize jack movement when load is applied to
casters.

6.7 Operate pump to extend rams until the footpads contact the ground.

WARNING: MAINTAIN APPROXIMATELY 1 INCH CLEARANCE BETWEEN LOCKNUT


AND MATING SURFACE DURING RAISING AND LOWERING OF RAMS. DO
NOT ADJUST SECOND STAGE LOCKNUT UNTIL FIRST STAGE RAM IS
FULLY EXTENDED. THE SECOND STAGE LOCKNUT MUST STAY AT THE
TOP OF THE SECOND STAGE UNTIL AFTER THE FIRST STAGE IS FULLY

PROCEDURE FOR WINTERIZATION OF HYDRAULIC AIRCRAFT JACKS

O P
LY
E O
The following procedures should be utilized for optimum operational characteristics
when using jacks at various temperature extremes:

C C
o o
1) Above 0 F (-18 C)

D
Use MIL-H-5606, or equal, with no further additive required.
EN EL o o o
2) At 0 F (-18 C) to -20 F (-29 C)
o

Use a mixture of 75% MIL-H-5606, or equal, and 25% kerosene.


ER L

ED
o o
3) Below -20 F (-29 C)
O

R
IN

Use a mixture of 50% MIL-H-5606, or equal, and 50% kerosene.


EF R

TS
IN

Due to most company, safety, or union regulations which restrict employees from working
R T

PR

o o
out-of-doors below -30 F (-34 C), there is a lack of experience beyond this point. It is
L
R ON

permissible, however, to increase the percentage of kerosene up to 100%. As the ambient


A
IN

temperature increases, MIL-H-5606, should be added back to the system in the appropriate
IG

mixture.
R
O

o o
FO C

The air supply should be clean and dry. At -30 F (-34 C), the air pump will start to react
sluggishly and continue to operate less efficiently as the temperature decreases when
N

a normal air supply is used. The problem can be eliminated by using a dry nitrogen
source of sufficient capacity.
U

To ease the operation of the locknut(s) and screw extension, use "Never Freeze" by
Snap-On, or equal, and apply liberally to the thread surfaces.

SCREW EXTENSION USAGE

O P
LY
E O
When using a jack that has a screw extension, it is advisable that the screw extension
be extended as far as possible, and still have the jack roll under the jacking point. If the

C C
screw extension is not properly extended, the aircraft may not be able to be raised to the
desired height.

D
A periodic check should be made to the screw extension to ensure that the stop is
EN E
operating properly to prevent over-extension. To do this, rotate the screw extension
counterclockwise until it stops rotating. DO NOT FORCE THE SCREW EXTENSION
L
BEYOND THIS POINT. If the screw extension does not stop rotating, remove it and
repair the stop. DO NOT USE WITHOUT THE SCREW EXTENSION STOP WORKING
ER L
PROPERLY, AS THE JACK COULD FAIL WITH AN OVER-EXTENDED SCREW

PROCEDURE FOR ADJUSTING CARTRIDGE STYLE RELIEF VALVES

O P
LY
It is imperative that safety relief valves on all jacks always be set between rated

E O
capacity, and rated capacity plus 10% maximum. The following procedure describes
how to adjust cartridge style relief valves.

C C
1) Position jack under jack tester.

D
2) Fully close release valve.
EN E
3) Remove access screw and seal. Install valve adjusting tool, Part No. 915-EB.
L
(See Figure 1)
ER L
NOTE: IF TOOL IS NOT AVAILABLE, DISREGARD THIS STEP.

ED
O

R
4) Extend cylinder ram(s):
IN
EF R

TS

4.1 On single stage jacks, extend the ram approximately half way.
IN
R T

PR

4.2 On multiple stage jacks, extend all rams until the smallest ram is extended
L
R ON

approximately half way.


A
IN
IG

5) To set Valves:
R
O
FO C

5.1 Using smooth, uniform pump handle strokes, manually pressurize the cylinder
while monitoring either jack load gauge or load gauge on tester.
N

5.2 Pump handle shall "drop" or "go soft" at an indicated load between rated load
U

and rated load plus 10% (ex: 50 ton jack should be between 50 and 55 tons).

5.3 If safety relief valve is set too high, release pressure and rotate adjusting screw
counterclockwise. Repeat above steps until valve is adjusted in range.

5.4 If safety relief valve is set too low, release pressure and rotate adjusting screw
clockwise. Repeat steps until valve is adjusted in range.

NOTE: IF ADJUSTING TOOL IS NOT AVAILABLE, IT IS NECESSARY TO RELIEVE


PRESSURE COMPLETELY BEFORE REMOVING VALVE ACCESS SCREW
AND SEAL. THEN VALVE SET SCREW CAN BE ADJUSTED USING A 1/8
INCH ALLEN WRENCH. VALVE ACCESS SCREW AND SEAL MUST BE
RE-INSTALLED BEFORE JACK CAN BE RE-PRESSURIZED.

O P
LY
E O
To ensure proper operation of all aircraft hydraulic jacks, it is important that at a minimum,
each jack is certified on an annual basis. The following procedure is provided as an aid

to the certification process.

1) With no external load applied to the jack, fully close release valve and fully

extend ram(s) to verify function and the absence of external hydraulic
EN EL leakage.

2) Open release valve and verify ram(s) retract fully.
