How is item 0005 (Lubricant – Molykote, G-N paste) used in the 249.20 swivel repair kit, part number 051-852-402)?
“Should that be applied to the press-fit pin surfaces, or should it be applied to the swivel’s ball-joint bearing surface?”
Figure 1 - Bill of Materials For: 051-852-402 - REPAIR KIT-SWIVEL,249.20 15 KIP
MTS checkout technician:
“Usually we just press the pin in without any grease or moly on it. Had it been a 220kip we would use moly to help assist but being that it is a 15kip we usually use just a liquid lubricant to help.
The Moly lube is used in the Jaw halves and pin to prevent gulling of the jaw bores when pressing in the pin.”
