Type M304 Gear Case

GENERAL

This service bulletin provides the necessary information to inspect, lubricate and repair the type M304 Gear Case.

The type M304 gear case is a four-center, three- reduction gear box designed for use on hoist drive systems. With this gear case, the drum shaft is key fitted to the driven gear of the third reduction.

Helical gearing is provided on the first and second reductions; spur gearing is provided on the final reduction. Spherical roller bearings are provided throughout the gear case eliminating the need to shim bearings. Each bearing is suspended in a bearing retainer that is held in the gear case by the clamping force imposed by the gear case base and the gear case cover. A single-piece oil seal is provided at the output shaft locations when the gear case is shipped from the factory.

MAINTENANCE

General

The following topics cover general inspection and maintenance of the type M304 gear case, which should be performed at regular intervals.

Inspection

Periodic inspection of the gear case is necessary to maintain proper performance, and to ensure continued operation. The frequency of inspections depends on the operating conditions to which the gear case is subjected. Inspection should include the following:

1. Check the gear case for loose, damaged, or missing hardware. Replace missing or damaged hardware and tighten all hardware securely.

2. Check the gear case for leaking shaft seals or gaskets. Replace any leaking shaft oil seals.

Tighten the gear case cover hardware and inspection cover hardware as necessary.

3. Check the input and output shaft couplings for loose, damaged, or missing hardware. Replace damaged or missing hardware, and tighten securely.

4. Check the input and output shaft couplings for proper lubrication. Lubricate the coupling per the applicable component service bulletin.

5. Check the brake for loose, damaged, or missing hardware as described in the applicable service bulletin.

Checking Gear Case Oil Level

Check the gear case oil level at least once each week.

• On gear cases equipped with a dipstick, remove the gear case dipstick, and check the gear case oil level. The oil level should be between the HIGH and the LOW marks on the dipstick. If the oil level is at or below the LOW mark on the dipstick, remove one of the gear case inspection covers and add oil through the inspection cover opening until the oil level is brought up to the HIGH mark on the dipstick. Clean and reinstall the gear case inspection cover and the dipstick.

• On gear cases without a dipstick, remove pipe cap (32) and visually check the level of oil. The oil should be level with the top of pipe (31). If the oil level is below the top of the pipe, remove one of the gear case inspection covers and add oil through the inspection cover opening until the oil level is brought up to the top of the pipe. Clean and reinstall the gear case inspection cover and pipe cap (32).

Changing Gear Case Oil

CLEANING. Proceed as follows.

of the gear case as follows: CLEANING. Proceed as follows. ! CAUTIONDANGER Air-borne particles can cause

! CAUTIONDANGER

Air-borne particles can cause injury to the eye and face. Use appropriate eye and face protection when using compressed air.

Clean all gear case component parts in a suitable solvent. Use of a stiff bristle brush to remove accumulated dirt and sediments on the gear case components. Dry each part using low-pressure, filtered compressed air.

INSPECTION. All disassembled parts should be in- spected to determine their fitness for continued use. Pay

particular attention to the following:

NOTICE

A bearing that appears loose or rotates roughly must be replaced. Failure to observe this precaution will result in bearing and/or gear case component damage.

1. Inspect gears for worn, cracked, or broken teeth.

2. Inspect bushings for wear, scoring or galling.

3. Inspect bearings for play, distorted races, and roller or ball wear or damage. Inspect bearings for freedom of rotation.

4. Look for ridges caused by wear on shafts. If ridges caused by wear are apparent on shafts, replace the shaft. Inspect all surfaces on which oil seal lips seat. These surfaces must be very smooth to prevent wearing away the seal lip.

5. Inspect seal (35) for damage. If the seal is damaged and the drum shaft is still installed in the gear case, the seal can be replaced with a split seal. Consult the applicable parts literature and/or your local P&H dealer for information.

REPAIR. Repairs are limited to the removal of small burrs and other minor surface imperfections from gears and shafts. Use a fine stone or emery cloth for this work. Do not use steel wool.

1. Worn or damaged parts must be replaced. Refer to the applicable Parts Manual for specific replacement parts information.

2. Inspect all remaining parts for evidence of damage. Replace or repair any part that is in questionable condition. The cost of the part is often minor compared to the cost of redoing the job.

3. Smooth all nicks, burrs, or galled spots on shafts, bores, pins, or bushings.

4. Examine gear teeth carefully, and remove nicks or burrs.

5. Polish the edges of shaft shoulders to remove small nicks that may have been caused during handling.

6. Remove all nicks and burrs caused by lockwashers.

7. Replace all gaskets, oil seals, and O-rings any time the gear case is disassembled for repair.

Gear Case Sealing Procedure

This procedure covers sealing of all non-gasketed gearcases as follows. If the particular gear case being

Revised 10/24/03

sealed does not have retainers, simply discard implications to the retainers.

1. Scrape away old gaskets material. Gasket material is dissolvable using Loctite Chisel ™ Gasket Remover #790. All surfaces to be sealed must be cleaned to obtain the most effective formed-in-place gasket. Remove all oil, machining lubricants, burrs, etc., from the parting surfaces of the gear case cover, base, and retainers. Use a non-petroleum- based cleaner such as isopropyl alcohol (91 to 95 percent), mineral spirits, or automotive brake cleaner to remove the dirt and oils from the sealing surfaces of the gearcase.

2. Carefully apply a film of oil to the inside diameters of the shaft seals, before sliding the seals over the shafts. Be sure not to get oil on the OD of the seal or sealant will not adhere to the seal.

NOTICE

Do not wait longer than 15 minutes to assemble sealant covered parts (after applying sealant)! This is to avoid skinning of the sealant causing ineffective sealing.

avoid skinning of the sealant causing ineffective sealing. ! CAUTIONDANGER Uncurred sealant irritates eyes and skin.

! CAUTIONDANGER

Uncurred sealant irritates eyes and skin. In case of eye contact, immediately flush with water for 15 minutes and call a physician. Use with adequate ventilation.

3. Apply Loctite Ultra Black #598 RTV (P&H Part Number 21Z587D11) sealant on the outside diameter of all shaft seals before installing the seals into the retainers.

4. Apply Loctite Ultra Black #598 RTV to the lower half of the drum shaft retainer and also on to the bore, spreading the sealant over the entire flange width. Lower the output shaft into the sealant-covered bore. Leave O-rings in place if they are used.

5. Repeat Step 4 for the remaining shafts.

6. After all shafts are in place, remove any excess sealant that may have partially dried at the parting line. Then apply a 1/4” diameter bead of sealant at the center of the parting surface on the lower half of the gearcase. The bead should encircle the bolt holes and over the top half of the bearing retainers. Spread sealant evenly across the parting face and over the entire upper half of the bearing retainer. Lay a bead of sealant at the edge of each bearing retainer. (See FIgure 2.)

7. Place top half of gear case over the lower half. Top half does not need to be coated.

8. Install bolts and snug them up. Tighten bolts to values shown in Figure 2 using torque tightening sequence shown.

9. Smooth the sealant overage as though calking around the parting line.

10. Allow sealant to dry 2 hours before adding oil to the gearcase.

Assembly

Assemble the type M304 gear case as follows (see Figure 1):

NOTICE

Upon reassembly, incorporate the sealing procedure presented above.

1. Before assembling the gear case, lubricate all bearings, O-rings, and seals using gear oil. This will aid in installation and will ensure adequate lubrication upon gear case start-up.

! WDARNINGANGER

! WDARNINGANGER

Inadvertent movement of the gear case shafts and attached components can result in severe personal injury. Disconnect, lock out, and tag the crane power disconnect switch before initiating lubrication procedures.

1. Disconnect, lock out, and tag the source that supplies power to the crane before lubricating the equipment.

2. Do not allow oil or grease to contact the brake shoes or wheels.

3. Wipe any spilled or overflowed lubricants.

4. Do not over fill gearcases. They are not intended to retain lubricant when filled beyond the maximum

indicated oil levels. Use the oil level pipe to maintain the proper oil level in the gearcase.

5. Before and after applying grease to the grease fittings, wipe the fitting clean to prevent an accumulation of dirt that could be forced into the part being lubricated.

6. Be sure the lubricants are not contaminated before using them.

The following lists identify lubricants suitable for use on the crane by three methods as follows:

1. By P&H Specification Number: This specification number identifies the initial fill lubricant as classified by internal Morris Material Handling Standards.

2. By Military Specification Number: If a military specification number exists for a lubricant that corresponds to the P&H number in the same line, the military specification number is entered.

NOTICE

The absence of a military specification number does not necessarily mean that the lubricant does not meet a military specification. It may, for example, mean that the lubricant has not been tested and qualified by the military because it is relatively new. For that reason, it is not certified as meeting the standards of a particular military specification even though it may be capable of doing so.

3. By Equivalent Lubricant: Equivalent lubricants presently confirmed as meeting the requirements of the P&H specification are listed by manufacturer and trade names. Note that omission of a trade name does not imply disapproval to that particular lubricant. It merely means that the lubricant has not been tested by Morris Material Handling. Also no superiority of brand of lubricant is to be inferred from the order of appearance on the list. The lists are alphabetical and all products listed are equally acceptable.

Lubricants listed in the following tables specify an approximate ambient range of which they can be used. If seasonal temperatures exceed this range, lubricants should be changed to one that is compatible with the expected ambient temperature.

NOTICE

At the time of publication of this document, Morris Material Handling believes that the manufacturers listed in the lubricant charts

conformed to the P&H specification. Manufacturers can change lubricant formulation from time to time without advising Morris Material Handling. To prevent any possible conflict, obtain a current copy of P&H Lubrication specifications and work with your lubrication supplier to find a product that satisfies the specification. The lubrication charts also show approximate ambient temperature ranges for oil. Consult your lubrication specialist to determine actual recommended range for the product being used. When choosing a lubricant, be sure it has a pour point at least 9°F lower than the lowest anticipated ambient temperature.

NOTICE

There are many types of lubricants that will meet the P&H specifications, but which may not be compatible with each other. If lubricant type and/or manufacturer are changed, the old lubricant must be completely drained from the gear case before adding the new lubricant.

NOTICE

P&H 458F ISO VG 220 is a general-purpose mineral-type oil that will provide good life, because it is a rust and oxidation (R&O) inhibited gear oil. This oil can be successfully used in all P&H applications requiring GO oil. For very low temperature ambients, use P&H 467A, and for very high temperature ambients use P&H 467I (see appropriate charts, GOA or GOH). P&H 467 is a synthetic oil. P&H 458 and 476 do not contain any friction modifiers, including extreme pressure EP, anti-wear, or solid-film additives. Some components such as bronze gears in worm gear reducers and internal mechanical load brakes can be damaged if oil containing such additives are used. Additionally, some oils have additives that may not be compatible with the seal material used in the gear reducers. To prevent possible problems, be sure your lubrication vendor guarantees in writing that the oil he is supplying conforms to the desired P&H specifications.
