Step 3. Remove floor plates. Check for hydraulic leaks at level winder. Check that quick--disconnect on hose
33 and 34 (hydraulics for level winder) is properly connected.
Connect quick--disconnect, tighten connections, or notify unit maintenance if there are any damaged
Check for cable problems including birdnesting, skipped wraps, kinks, broken strands, excess mud/debris
build--up, misalignment between cable on drum and trumpet. Check for damage to level wind drive chain

DIAMOND SCREW/LEVEL WIND
If there is damage to winch, level winder, cable, drive chain, or sprockets, or if shoulder bolt or plate is
missing or damaged, do not operate winch. Notify unit maintenance.
Step 4. Use WINCH OVERRIDE switch and main winch operating lever to intermittently pay out and inhaul
winch cable to make sure main winch cable is wrapping and unwrapping properly during inhaul and
payout. Maintaining cable tension, use WINCH OVERRIDE switch and carefully payout main winch
cable just past the point where spooling malfunction occurred. Correct spooling malfunction.
Step 5. If problem still exists, notify unit maintenance.
