Service information

I've worked at several dealers and also been independent as well as worked for some heavy contractors. In cases where a chart is not available while you need to do is identify the end tag your boom and arm circuits on the pilot control side of the circuit. Then once tagged after following each function from that side of the control valve bank you will swap arm in with boom up and arm out with boom down. Click below for the download link of the chart and let me know if you need further help with this as we can follow-up is needed on here.

Please take a moment to rate my answers as that is how the site credits my time helping on the site or let me know if you need more help. 5 star ratings and bonuses are always greatly appreciated.

I asked for a picture or diagram of the UNLABELED valve assembly where hoses attach on the ports . The hoses are marked , but the PORTS areNOT , so a chart does me no good thanks anyway
Mechanic: Dan, Technician replied 4 years ago

Thanks for the update. Sorry about that.... I went through the diagrams offered and this one is the best it gets with Cat. With the chart and the Port ID here you should be on the right track. Please in the future respond back for more info before rating negative as we can follow up as needed on here. Click below and if you could reconsider your rating. I was a prior Cat field service tech currently independent. Let me know if you need further clarification.
