Replaced HP hose 700 for top Torque wrench clamp cylinder. Also the chain wheel for the spinner was damaged. The
keeper plate bolts were broken off and the bushing badly damaged. Repaired with new parts. During assembly we
noticed that the chains were not evenly tensioned which I believe caused the failure. (lesson learned)

that motor as it was leaking at the shaft seal.
Rebuild Spare right hand side of spare spinner. Waiting on parts to rebuild the left hand side.

bearing and hosing from the rebuild spare right hand side because we do not have another lower bearing on stock and
install it without motor because we do not have any more and put a plat with gasket to cover the upper housing, now
the spinner is running with 3 motors only.
After that we take the last spare upper and lower housing and bearing which is left on the spare right hand side and
install it on the PS-AFT.
Finally now at the last night we are working on the paper work to take the last one left at STB-FWD upper and lower
bearing to disassembly it and rebuild it again with the last pars we have and install it again.
