Installation Procedure for New Water Tanks

  1. Remove the former water tanks from the machine.

    Reference: Disassembly and Assembly, "Water Tank - Remove and Install"

  2. Remove the existing 360-2551 Mount (A) from the rear frame assembly.


    Illustration 2g03697817
    (B) 64.5 mm (2.54 inch)
    (C) 85 mm (3.3 inch)
    (D) 50 mm (2.0 inch) at two sides
    (E) Drill diameter of 11 mm (0.4 inch) at two places


    Illustration 3g03697818


    Illustration 4g03697819

  3. Drill two holes (F) of diameter (E) of 11 mm (0.4 inch) on the frame as per dimensions shown in Illustration 2.


    Illustration 5g03697820
    (G) 206.2 mm (8.12 inch)
    (H) 448.8 mm (17.67 inch)


    Illustration 6g03697821
    (J) 531 mm (20.9 inch)
    (K) 275.8 mm (10.86 inch)
    (L) 255.2 mm (10.05 inch)
    (M) 81.2 mm (3.20 inch)
    (N) Radius of 235 mm (9.3 inch)
    (P) Radius of 20 mm (0.8 inch) at four edges
    (R) 9.2 mm (0.4 inch)
    (S) 125.9 mm (4.96 inch) at two places

  4. Enlarge the size of two areas of the frame as per dimensions shown in Illustration 5 and Illustration 6.

    Note: Some frames have a smaller hole and some may have a larger hole so the layout might look different than the illustrations but the layout for the dimensions will be correct.

    1. Measurement H and G overlap each other. Use measurement H. Before cutting the hole in the frame in illustration 5, disconnect and cap the hydraulic hoses for the right rear final drive. Remove the clamp and bolt from the L bracket. Cut the L bracket for hydraulic hoses off and save the hardware for later use.


    Illustration 7g03697823
    (V) 30 mm (1.2 inch) at four places
    (X) Radius of 30 mm (1.2 inch) at four edges
    (Y) 120 mm (4.7 inch)

  5. Fabricate a plate (U) of thickness 10 mm (0.4 inch) as per dimensions shown in Illustration 7.

    1. Set the U plate  directly in the enlarged hole in the frame. Weld the plate in place. Use the L bracket that was cut off earlier and weld the bracket in the center of the U plate on the backside.


    Illustration 8g03697824
    (Z) 98.8 mm (3.89 inch)
    (AA) 90 mm (3.5 inch)
    (AB) 120 mm (4.7 inch)

  6. Weld the plate (U) into the area of frame as per dimensions shown in Illustration 8.


    Illustration 9g03697825
    (W1) 6 mm (0.2 inch) fillet weld


    Illustration 10g03697826
    (W1) 6 mm (0.2 inch) fillet weld

  7. Weld new bracket (1) and bracket (2) to the frame as shown in Illustration 9 and Illustration 10.

  8. Remove the existing parts from the old tanks. Install the removed parts on new water tank groups.

    1. Install the 2 elbows, clamps and vent hoses into the new center water tank, and secure them together with zip ties.

    434-5087 Water Tank Gp

  9. Install one new elbow (3) and one new grommet (4) on top of water tank group (5).

  10. Reuse existing fittings from the old tank on bottom of water tank group (5).


    Illustration 13g03778623

  11. Install new water tank group (5) and water tank (6) to the respective water tank group using the hardware listed in Table 1 as shown in Illustration 11.

    1. After installing the tanks into the machine frame, install new straps to secure the center tank. Reuse the straps from the rear tank to secure the new tank.

    2. Remove both lower supply hoses. Install the hoses on the opposite sides of each other because the hoses are not long enough to reach the lower fittings on the center tank. Route hoses in with the existing P-clips so that the hoses are not rubbing on the frame.
