5-64. SLACK PULLER AND MOTOR - ANCHOR WINCH - MAINTENANCE INSTRUCTIONS (Continued)
The vanes are held against the cam ring by tension from the
springs in the rotor. If the rotor is pulled from the cam ring with
no protection, compression from the springs will cause the
vanes to be thrown forcibly out from the rotor in all directions.
Serious injury can occur to the maintenance personnel since the
vanes have fine, sharp edges.
Place the cartridge (cam ring, rotor, springs, and vanes) on a
clean, flat surface. Push the rotor and vanes simultaneously out
of the cam ring far enough so that a ring compressor can be
securely fastened around the vanes. Once the ring compressor
is in place, push the rotor and vanes the remainder of the way
out of the cam ring. Ease the tension of the ring compressor
slowly so that the vanes do not fly out of the rotor.
