INNER PONTON AND OUTER PONTON SEPARATION (Contd)
CONNECTING OUTER PONTONS TO INNER PONTONS
Connecting of left and right outer pontons is performed the same
way. Right side is shown.
Apply a light coat of grease to pins prior to installation.
Install bracket (2) on stabilizer lever (4) with pin (14).
Position spacer (3) in recess on outer ponton (12).
Using lifting device and IRB hoisting gear, position outer ponton (12) so that holes in stabilizer
lever (4) and bracket (2) align with holes in outer ponton (12).
Using dunnage, level and support outer ponton (12).
Install pin (8) and two spacer plates (15) on stabilizer lever (7), outer ponton (12), and two
connecting links (6).
Install screw (11) on outer ponton (12) and pin (8) and install two washers (13) and screws (1) on
bracket (2), spacer (3), and outer ponton (12).
Apply a light coat of sealing compound to back of bracket (9), and install bracket (9) on outer
ponton (12) with five screws (10).
All personnel must stand clear during lifting operations. Ensure
ponton foldlocks and travel latch are in good mechanical condition
and securely locked prior to lifting bay. Failure to comply may
result in damage to equipment or injury to personnel.
Ensure the two long chains of the IRB hoisting gear are connected
to the load receiving pins so pontons will hang level during
Attach lifting device and IRB hoisting gear to load receiving pins (17) on outer ponton (12), and lift
and swing outer ponton (12) down on inner ponton (5).
Close two foldlocks (16) at ends of outer ponton (12).
