Heavy Duty Power Rear Bumper/Step tow bar, Toyota Land Cruiser, OJ 03.121.01 (#122737630186). Basic consumer properties, terms and conditions for safe use. The bumper is designed for installation on vehicles with a standard body, or with the body raised 50 mm (2 inches) above the frame (with lifted body). Due to the fact that the bumper is meant for use in conditions at which there is a high load on the car, it is necessary to periodically check the integrity of structure and fasteners. When loosening of fasteners occurs one should immediately stop the bumper operation and take steps to eliminate defects.
The use of the winch platform is not permitted if it is deformed. The bumper is intended for use with a winch with the towing capacity of up to 5.5 tons.When using the winch it is necessary to strictly observe safety rules, namely: a to use a tree protector and shackles for cable fixing; b to hold the cable with hands no closer than 0.5 m from the hawse-hole/rollers, to ensure that hands are not sucked into the gap hawse-hole/rollers use heavy gloves; c securely fasten the cable, ensure not to collide with the cable while driving; d to monitor the safe location of other people/cars related to the winch and cable, use cable dampers. When driving on public roads the winch hawse-hole should not overlap the front plane surface of the bumper. It is recommended to use a cast iron hawse-hole instead of rollers with steel winch cable, and it is required (including avoiding damages to the cable during operation) to replace rollers with the aluminum or plastic hawse-hole while using synthetic winch cable. The winch cable must be securely fastened (stretched) with its hook in the dog block opening of the rack jack 2 in the transportation position. When using the cable it is necessary to securely fasten it both to the bumper and a towing/towed car.
The cable is fixed to the towing eye with the clevis. The admissible load on the towing eye 1 is 3 tons when towing on public roads. It is allowed to use a dynamic cable with the breaking load up to 11 tons for pulling the stuck car.Due to the inability to reliably determine the value of the load on the towing eye that occurs when pulling a stuck car actual cable characteristics, the degree of sticking, presence of objects that prevent release of the car, etc. The service life of the bumper is 10 years. After finishing this period it is necessary to stop its use, dismantle it from the car and dispose of as old metal. In case of exceeding the term of service destruction of the bumper power components may take place due to fatigue wear, which can lead to unpredictable negative consequences.
Tightening torques of threaded joints. Threaded joints at mounting spots of the bumper brackets to the frame and the bumper itself to the brackets refer to the class of responsible threaded joints OST 37.001.031-72. For such joints, it is necessary to ensure compliance with the value of the tightening torque to prevent displacement of the bumper and damage to the parts due to loosening of fasteners.
Maximum and minimum tightening torque points of the bumper mounting to the car frame are given in the table below. Acceptable error threshold of torque measuring instruments shall not exceed the values specified in the table. 80% off-road / earth road, 20% city / highway. 20% off-road / earth road, 80% city / highway.
Check of threaded joints tightening, to tighten if necessary. Once a month or every 1,000 operational miles. Every 6 months or every 5,000 operational miles. Check of the clearance between the bumper and the body of the car, to align if necessary.
Inspection of the frame brackets and bumper for cracks. Every 3 months or every 1,000 operational miles. Every 12 months or every 3,000 operational miles. List of shortcomings to terminate the operation.Cracks, gaps in metal of the bumper brackets or frame. Deformation, bulging of the winch platform (the use of the winch must be terminated). Displacement of the bumper relative to the car body with decreasing gaps less than recommended. It is necessary to stop the use of the product and to repair or replace damaged parts upon detection of these shortcomings. If it is impossible to repair or replace the product should be demounted. Installation must be carried out by a person who has a car mechanic qualification not lower than the 2nd rank. Before installing, make sure the product conforms to the dimensions given in this manual. A recommended gap between the bumper and the body should be 10-15 mm (less then half inch). The slight local increase or decrease in the gap in some places. On cars with the frame structure body is attached through spacers and its position relative to the frame can be asymmetrical to the right and left sides of the car, and as a result the bumper can be out of alignment relative to the. In order to reduce the probability of this situation occurrence, the design of the bumper and brackets, as well as adjusting spacers allows making adjustment of its position relative to the body and installing the bumper with. However, on the other hand, the possibility of such adjustment, at an unskillful or careless installation may result in irregular gaps; the bumper will stand askew relative to the body. In this case, the installation must be carried out. In accordance with the recommendations by experienced installers, using bearers or rack jacks under the bumper edges for aligning gaps. Fastener tightening of one or more mounting points tightly without waiting for installation and engaging of all points can lead to a mismatch (misalignment) of some mounting points. Tightening of one fastener out of a pair of brackets tightly instead of gradual broaching can cause a change in the gap on one side, against the other one (especially it is true for brackets with oblique loops). Installation of clearances with smaller values than recommended may cause contact between the car body and the bumper when driving over bumps and as a result, (slap) damage to the lacquer-coating or body.
