I just had to write about this. This very simple technique is still
overlooked by some. It might save you a lot of "mounting" time when applied
correctly. I personally find it very neat, so I took the liberty
of combining this small "educational" video...
Note that it will not work for all pumps and
motors - a series of conditions must be met. The pistons must move
freely, the swash plate must be horizontal, you must be able to stop
the pistons from rotating. The job will be much easier if the cylinder
block has guided piston cavities, like the original series 90 blocks
have (check out my article about the Sauer Danfoss series 90 pumps).
The basic idea is to push gently the cylinder block
in and turn it at the same time. As soon as you familiarize yourself
with the technique, you'll see it's really easy. Enjoy!
