Fixing the Gear Machine
Leveling the gear unit is a point which should not be overlooked. Any excessive unevenness or maladjustment in the gear unit anchorages may result in oil leakages. Said leakages could reduce the lubrication level, grease the brake shoes or produce/create other events which would reduce/minimize the quality in performance. To level the deviation bed or bed frame, you must check with a level comparator as in Figures 1 and 2. If the bed is offlevel, then you must underlay it with steel plates until the level is achieved.
