SERVICE BULLETIN #009R
Date: December 4, 2019
Subject: SMART-STEER 2.0 Bolt-On Steer Arm Reinforcement Welds
Based on feedback from our customers, Dexter Heavy Duty has become aware that under certain loading conditions, the 8-7/8" steer arm setup on the SMART-STEER 2.0 axle is prone to shearing the attaching steer arm bolts. This will lead to a failure in the steer arm assembly.
|SMART-STEER 2.0||STEER ARM ASSEMBLY|
Dexter recommends that you perform a steer arm inspection of your axle(s) as soon as possible; but no later than four weeks after receiving this service bulletin. Please follow the steps listed below:
- Visually inspect steer arm bolts and washers for mechanical tightness and replace if necessary.
- Ensure the steer arm bolts are torqued to 400 Lbs.
- Place welds as shown on page three of this bulletin. If you would like a copy of engineering drawing 750049, please contact one of the service technicians listed below.
A reference table of impacted models is on page two of this service bulletin .
Please contact your Dexter Heavy Duty Field Service Technicians Rudy Wosing or Phil Schnurr at (226) 242-5291 if you have additional questions or need further clarification.
We appreciate your understanding as we determine a long term solution to this issue.
