Preparing Your Phantom Unit Main Blade For Installation
One component of the industry-leading Phantom unit is the main blade. Once the Phantom unit main blade has been assembled, it is ready to be installed into the Phantom unit itself. With a quick change hub and spindle design, main blade assembly is simple and efficient.
Apply Loctite Threadlocker Blue 242 to ALL eight bolts before installation.
Install the two longer (9/16" x 2") bolts through the back side (where the spindle is located) of the main hub, by positioning the two bolts in holes DIAGONAL from each other. Torque the bolt to 200 foot-pounds.
STAND the hub up on the spindle.
Install the main coulter blade on the hub face, by placing two of the blade holes OVER the two previously torqued bolts.
Install the gauge ring on top of the main coulter blade, by placing two of the gauge ring holes OVER the two previously torqued bolts.
Install the four (9/16" x 1.5") bolts in the remaining holes of the gauge ring and two (9/16") coupler nuts on the bolts from step 2. Torque the bolts and the coupler nuts in a STAR pattern to 200 foot-pounds.
Install the gauge ring cap by PLACING it in the gauge wheel. Install two (9/16" x 1.5") bolts through the gauge ring cap and into the coupler nuts. Torque to 200 foot-pounds.
The Phantom unit main blade is now READY to be installed to the main arm. See "How-To Assemble a Bazooka Farmstar Phantom Unit" for more details.
