Figure 4-12. Angle/Bracket/Socket Adapter Assembly.
Loosely attach one socket adapter (14), with the curbside end angle bracket (15), using two
screws (21), and two washers (9). Repeat procedure using the roadside equivalent, (16, Figure
4-9). See Figure 4-12
Starting at the secured mounting angle, fit the adapter, with the appropriate angle bracket as-
sembled, into socket on that skid of the tank and loosely attach the angle bracket to the mounting
angle using four screws (8), eight washers, (9), and four nuts (10). Repeat procedure at mounting
angle farside. See Figure 4-12
At the other end of tank, again starting at the secured mounting angle, attach the appropriate
clamping end bracket (17 or 18 Figure 4-9) to the assembled clamping adapters on post of tank
skid (step 5, above) by installing two screws (21) and two washers (9) through bracket into tapped
holes in the inboard adapter (13), fingertight only. See Figure 4-10 and Figure 4-12
Loosely attach clamping end bracket to mounting angle using four screws (8), eight washers (9),
and four nuts (10). Repeat procedure in steps (9) and (10), for farside. See Figure 4-12
It is preferred that the tank be shifted as far forward on flatbed as slots will
allow, without compromising the fit of the clamping adapters.
(11) Starting at secured mounting angle, fit all parts up snug and tighten all hardware. Refer to para-
graph 4-16, b, (1).
