Rework Procedure for 8P4176 Case & Frame Assembly

1. Visually inspect the lower part of the frame rails, cl.ose to the equalizer bar support welded on the rails, in order to identify the presence of cracks as well as the existence or not of the weld pigtails beyond the supports (4 places of each one). See Illustration 1.

2. If no crack is detected, verify that the 8 pigtails are without sharp corners and grind according to Detail A on Illustration 2. If the pigtails are not without sharp corners, proceed the elimination of sharp corners as described in procedure 1.

NOTE: There can not be any weld on the supports ends except for the pigtails.

3. If a crack(s) are found, verify its condition and follow the Procedure 1 or Procedure 2.

Procedure 1 is for cases in which it is necessary to rework the pigtails and also if th.ey show cracks.

Procedure 2 is for cases in which there are cracks on sections and/or side plates and being the extension of the cracks on side plate, up to 50 mm. See Illustration 4 Part 1 of 4.

Procedure 1 - Follow this procedure when the pigtails are cracked or have sharp corners see Illustration 3

Welding Conditions:

Arc Welding process
Electrode AWS E7018
Size 3.2 mm - 140 Amp. (first pass)
Size 4.0 mm - 220 Amp.
Polarity DC+

General Conditions:

...All foreign material such as paint, grease, and others must be removed.

...The cooling must be done in normal air condition.

Welding Conditions:

...Remove pigtails and 25 mm of weld between support and rail.

...Remake the weld between support and rail plus the pigtail so it will be one single bead, without tie-in. Grind the pigtail to form the radii.

Procedure 2 - Follow this procedure when section and/or side plates show cracks and the cracks do not exceed 50 mm in length, at side plates. See Illustration 4.

NOTE: In a case where the crack length exceeds 50 mm, contact Caterpillar for specific actions.

Welding Conditions:

...Same as Procedure 1

General Conditions:

...Cleaning and cooling same as Procedure 1

...Provide material for back-up:

Material - SAE 102
Thickness: 4.0 mm
Width: 30.0 mm

Welding Procedures

1. Using carbon electrode, remove cracks on section making a bevel groove and cracks on side plate, making a "V" groove.

2. Remove slags from the joint.

3. Cut away a back-up plate, 70 mm length and weld an electrode on it. See Illustration 4 - Part 2 of 4.

4. Put the back-up at the section and tack weld. See Illustration 4 - Part 3 of 4.

5. Follow procedure 3 and 4 above for the side plates.

6. Weld the section and side plate according welding conditions.

7. Grind weld flat.

NOTE: The weld on the section can never be concave or convex.

8. Remove pigtails (8) and 25mm of supports/rails weld. See Illustration 4 - Part 4 of 4.

9. Remake the weld, without tie-in. Grind it. See Illustration 4 - Part 4 of 4.
