This special instruction covers the installation procedure for 454-2355 Lines Gp - Coupler.

The coupler lines group consists of a switch in the cab, and a control valve and pressure lines which supply hydraulic pressure to the quick coupler. The switch has two positions that are used for coupling and uncoupling the work tool. Pressure for the operation of the quick coupler is supplied by the implement pump.

Safety Section


Care must be taken to ensure that fluids are contained during performance of inspection, maintenance, testing, adjusting, and repair of the product. Be prepared to collect the fluid with suitable containers before opening any compartment or disassembling any component containing fluids.

Refer to Special Publication, PERJ1017, "Dealer Service Tool Catalog" for tools and supplies suitable to collect and contain fluids on Cat® products.

Dispose of all fluids according to local regulations and mandates.

------ WARNING! ------

Personal injury can result from hydraulic oil pressure and hot oil.

Hydraulic oil pressure can remain in the hydraulic system after the engine has been stopped. Serious injury can be caused if this pressure is not released before any service is done on the hydraulic system.

Make sure all of the work tools have been lowered to the ground, and the oil is cool before removing any components or lines. Remove the oil filler cap only when the engine is stopped, and the filler cap is cool enough to touch with your bare hand.

------ WARNING! ------

Personal injury or death can result from improperly checking for a leak.

Always use a board or cardboard when checking for a leak. Escaping air or fluid under pressure, even a pin-hole size leak, can penetrate body tissue causing serious injury, and possible death.

If fluid is injected into your skin, it must be treated immediately by a doctor familiar with this type of injury.

Illustration 1g00104545

Prevent the machine from movement. Park the machine on a level surface.

Attach a "Do Not Operate" warning tag or a similar warning tag to the start switch or to the controls before you service the equipment . These warning tags (Special Instruction, SEHS7332) are available from your AVSpare dealer.

Welding Requirements

------ WARNING! ------

Personal injury or death can result from fumes, gases and ultraviolet rays from the weld arc.

Welding can cause fumes, burn skin and produce ultraviolet rays.

Keep your head out of the fumes. Use ventilation, exhaust at the arc, or both, to keep fumes and gases from your breathing area. Wear eye, ear and body protection before working.

Protect yourself and others; read and understand this warning. Fumes and gases can be dangerous to your health. Ultraviolet rays from the weld arc can injure eyes and burn skin. Electric shock can cause death.

Read and understand the manufacturer's instructions and your employer's safety practices. Do not touch live electrical parts.

Welding quality is critical to the success of the installation procedures. Welds must be smooth and continuous. Do not undercut the welds. No overlap is allowed. Grind the ends of the welds to a smooth radius.

All electrodes must be dried completely. The electrodes can be dried by heating the electrodes to 300°C (572°F). The electrodes must be dried for at least 30 minutes.

Do not weld in windy conditions. Do not weld when temperatures are below 16°C (60°F).

Penetration characteristics may vary greatly depending on the following conditions:

  • Electrode diameter

  • Shielding gas

  • Welding current

  • Plate thickness

The following items also affect the welds:

  • Geometry of welded joints

  • Surface conditions

  • Composition of the base metal and of the electrode

A root pass should be applied before each weld is finished.

Maintain a 3 mm (0.12 inch) minimum root opening on all cross welds and circle welds.

All welds to the stick must be welded in the direction from the rear of the stick toward the front of the stick.

For more welding information, consult the AVSpare Service Welding Guide, SEBD0512.
