Before mounting, the free space between the two washers of the set should be filled with a water-repellant and rust inhibiting grease, e.g. SKF LGMT 2. The bore and outside surfaces should be lightly greased.
When mounting, care should be taken to prevent the washers from tilting. A sleeve or similar arrangement should be used which abuts both washers (fig 5). The use of a press is recommended.
Where several sets of washers are to be mounted side by side, one set should be mounted first before mounting the next etc.
Brief mounting instructions are supplied with the washers.
