4. Reassemble link assembly as follows:
Reassemble the 3-point link assembly (8) by securing the side plates of the link assembly adapter
(10) to the 3-point link assembly and connecting the three 1-inch hexagon jam nuts, the three 1-inch
hexagon cap screws, the two spacers, and the single cam from the two 3-point link assembly side
Connect the cable-swaging terminal (6) to the latch assembly (7) by installing the straight-headed pin
and the ½-inch (1/2-cm) long cotter pin from top to bottom.
To join the cable assembly (2) to the actuator assembly (1), install the cotter pin and straight pin
securing the cable end clevis to the cable actuator.
The stake assembly-adjusting collar is preset and staked by four
setscrews. The collar position will not be altered at any time or under
Using a suitable tool, tighten the locking nut securing the cable assembly (2) housing to the actuator

Rotate actuator arm clockwise until spring guide rod is fully extended.
Lock the actuator arm into position with the appropriate quick release pin.
Place a 2-inch straight edge (or equivalent) on the fork end of the spring guide rod.
If spring guide rod shows any bend or curvature against straight edge, remove EFTC from service.
