  • Page 44 If necessary, replace with a new installation pin and lock pin. Use Honda authorized parts when replacing rotary tines. To prevent the installation pin from falling out, insert the lock pin in the direction opposite to the direction of rotation of the rotary part.
  • Page 45 Installing rotary tines Arrange the rotary tines as shown in the figure. If the arrangement or orientation is changed, vibration may be produced, and normal tilling operation may become impossible. Facing the Forward direction, install right-side tines 1, 2, 7, and 8 and left-side tines A, B, G, and H so that they are facing inside, and install right-side tines 3, 4, 5, and 6 and left-side tines C, D, E, and F so that they are facing outside.
  • Page 46 While pushing the rotary tines in the direction of rotation and the opposite direction, fasten the nut securely. PUSH TINE BOLT DIRECTION OF ROTATION These points should make contact.
