Step 2. Check side-to-side level of pallet.
If bridge halves are misaligned, adjust side-to-side level of pallet.
Step 3. Check that lower bridge half contacts limit switch KA2 to activate
forward pin wheel drive.
If KA2 is not activated, manually actuate using rod end of retrieval
9. BRIDGE LAUNCH BEAM MISALIGNED WITH PALLET UPPER ROLLER BLOCK
Check height of bridge launch beam; launch beam should be approximately
4 in. (100mm) below upper roller block rollers.
If launch beam is 4 in. (100 mm) below upper roller block and will not
align with rollers, winch in cable until bridge launch beam aligns with
