Second shackle must be installed to afford attachment of turnbuckle.
Attach a second shackle (11) to first shackle (9). Install shackle bolt (12).
Unscrew turnbuckle (13) so that it is nearly fully extended. This will allow for turnbuckle adjustment to
take-up wire rope (14) sag.
Attach turnbuckle (13) to shackle (11) and wire rope (14).
Attach opposite end of wire rope (14) exactly as in steps (4) through (11) above.
Use turnbuckles to adjust sag with no load on wire rope to 6 percent of span. Refer to Table 2-3.
Place shackle (15) on wire rope (14).
Lift hose end.
Wrap saddle (16) around hose (17) and attach to shackle (15) with bolt (18) and nut (19).
Tie manila rope (19) to leading end of hose (17).
As saddles (16) are applied and secured, use manila rope (19) to pull hoseline across stream, gorge or
obstruction. Saddles will travel along wire rope, providing support for hose.
When hose line is in place, use clamps (20) to secure shackles (15) closes to guy stake to wire rope to
prevent an accumulation of slack in center of span.
Gate valves should be installed at hose coupling nearest each side of span.
After line is filled with fuel, readjust sag to maximum of 9 percent of span. Refer to Table 2-4.
