6. Assembly tips

Assemble with stepped shaft in housings with insertion chamfer. Before assembly moisten housing or bush with oil. Fixture: no additional fixture is necessary after press fitting in, however gluing is permissible in special applications

or with reciprocating motion.
Caution: Do not use any lubricants containing MoS2, graphite or any other solid ingredients (can result with increased wear due to higher friction).
