VMC - 50-Taper - Gearbox - Installation Aid

Push POWER OFF. Set the main circuit breaker to the OFF position. Lock the main circuit breaker. Use an approved lock with an approved safety tag.

Step 1

Remove these parts from the old gearbox and put them on the replacement gearbox:

  1. Connector bracket
note: On CALM machines, the connector bracket [2] is installed behind the spindle. The solenoid pack [3] is in the CALM cabinet. Neither require removal.
  1. Solenoid pack
  2. Mid belt shield
  3. Spindle encoder

Step 2

Optical and magnetic spindle encoders:

The encoder bracket [1] that holds an optical spindle encoder does not fit on a replacement gearbox. A fitting [2] is in the way. If the encoder bracket does not fit, use the aluminum pipe [3] from the used gearbox. Install the pipe [3] onto the port [4] on the bottom of the replacement gearbox.
caution: Oil will drain from the ports [3 and 4] when the plug and fitting are removed. Make sure you drain the oil into a pan that is thoroughly cleaned. You must add the oil back into the gearbox oil reservoir when the pipe [3] is installed onto the port [4]. Any contamination in the oil will damage the replacement gearbox.

Step 3

Remove the 300A cable [1] from the connector bracket [2] and the P41 connector [3] on the IO PCB. Discard this cable.

Install the new 300A cable [4] supplied with the kit to the back of the connector bracket.

Install the small 2-pin connector to the location labeled SPARE.

Install the 4-pin connector to the location labeled SPINDLE FAN.

Install the large 2-pin connector to the location labeled OIL PUMP.

Install the other end of the new 300A cable to the P41 connector [3] on the IO PCB.

Step 4

Install the cable labeled VMC GEARBOX 2 LEVEL [1] to the space on the connector bracket labeled OIL LEVEL SWITCH [2].

Install the cable labeled TRANS OIL FLOW [3] to the space on the connector bracket labeled OIL PRESS. SWITCH [4].

Install the cable on the tank-venting solenoid [5] to the space on the connector bracket labeled SPARE [6].
