When the steer is drifting readjust according to the instruction of the steering gear manufacturer and above clause 2-3. Operate the steering gear and confirm it stops at the ~ center position of the hydraulic control valve. so that the link mechanism becomes 3-3 a correct parallelogram.2-4 Loosen the mechanical stopper of the servomotor drive unit and move it to the mechanical stop position of the hydraulic control valve by operating the manual handle. Then turn the power to "ON". Connect 3-2 of the repeat back unit. adjust it at 0° by operating the steering Make sure installation When necessary. because some difference generates in the stroke of the hydraulic control valve. 4-1 Operate DB control Make sure the power supply it at the input and output box. Make sure installation back unit. 3. Ask to the steering gear manufacturer how long in mm the mechanical mechanical stopper should be adjusted before the stop position of the hydraulic control valve. Tighten the locknut after the adjustment. readjust the mechanical stopper too.
