A number of readers expressed concern about the “Diamond Drive Service” in the December issue. The concern was that they’ve been previously warned to not tip a Firecat up on its right side for an extended period as this can cause air to enter the oil lines and possibly cause lubrication issues.
Therefore, if performing service on the Diamond Drive assembly, tip the sled up only as far as needed to perform the service (properly support the machine for safety) and pay specific attention to the possibility of air entering the oil lines, and bleed it if required to ensure adequate lubrication.

    What about Crossfires? Or F sleds for that matter? I was under the impression that there was no problem tipping a CF up on its right side.
