Gurney Bed & Upper Frame

Step 01

Fit the Gurney Upper Frame to the underside of the Gurney Bed, orienting it in the matching grooves as shown:

And a view from the underside:

Cover the Upper Frame at this center location with an Upper Frame Bracket, aligning the screw holes as shown:

Secure this Bracket into place with two (2) YP screws:

Repeat this process to secure the rest of the Upper Frame into place at these additional five locations. This will require ten (10) more YP screws with two installed for each Bracket:

Step 02

Fit the Grille into these matching holes at this end of the Gurney Upper Frame, orienting it as shown:

You will likely need some tweezers here make sure both ends of every wire of the Grille are seated in its proper hole, as shown:

Carefully cut four Grille Brackets from the sprue.

It is best to use sprue cutters or a sharp hobby knife for this:

Fit the Brackets over the Grille as shown, and secure these Brackets to the Gurney Bed with eight (8) YP screws – two for each bracket:

Step 03

Fit a Caster between the tabs of a Caster Leg and secure the Caster into place with two (2) FM screws – one on each side of the Leg.

This is your friendly reminder to try using 3-in-One Oil on all screws going into metal:

These screws are installed on both sides:

Repeat this process to create the second Caster Leg assembly using two (2) more FM screws:

Fit one Caster Leg assembly to this location on the underside of the Gurney Upper Frame:

Secure this Leg into place from the other side with one (1) DM screw:

Secure the second Leg assembly to the opposite side of the Gurney Upper Frame with one (1) more DM screw:

Thoughts


I was happily surprised to find out that the lower components of our Gurney are made out of metal. This is gonna look great!
