STAGE 125

 Return to the BUILD


“In this stage, you assemble and fit the gurney’s left real wheel, and put together two proton pack supports.”

These steps will be nearly identical to those in the previous stage.

Parts

Materials: The Wheel Leg, Lock Pole, and both Folding Legs are metal while the other parts are plastic.

Build


Gurney Left Rear Wheel

Step 01

Fit the Left Rear Wheel between these tabs of the Left Rear Wheel Leg and secure it into place with two (2) FM screws – one on each side of the Leg:

Next, align the pivot knuckles of the Folding Leg Upper and Folding Leg Lower together, as shown.

It is not easy to see, but there are tiny ‘stop’ tabs on the knuckle of each Folding Leg. When joined together correctly, the screw acts as the pivot point and the tabs touch each other to prevent it from opening backwards on itself:

As securing these two parts together can be fiddly, I recommend using the ABM screw to pre-thread the hole in this part first. Just drive it in and then remove it:

Secure these Folding Leg components together with one (1) ABM screw.

Tighten this screw only so much that the pivot movement is stiff, but not impossible:

Secure the tabs end of this Folding Leg assembly to the Left Rear Wheel Leg with one (1) AM screw, orienting the parts as shown:

Step 02

Retrieve your Gurney assembly from the previous stage. Align the ‘hook’ of the Left Rear Wheel Leg under this bar of the Gurney Lower Frame:

Fit a Left Rear Leg Fixing over the hook, capturing the bar in between, and secure these parts together with one (1) FM screw:

In the same way, fit the ‘hook’ of the Folding Leg Upper under this bar of the Gurney Lower Frame. Then, as before, fit a Left Rear Leg Fixing over this hook, and secure these parts together with one (1) more FM screw:

Step 03

Retrieve your Wheel Lock Pole Base from the previous stage. Slot one end of the Wheel Lock Pole between the tabs of the Pole Base, align the holes, and then secure these two parts together with one (1) AP screw:

Next, fit the Wheel Lock to the other end of the Wheel Lock Pole and secure it into place with one (1) EP screw.

This Wheel Lock should be attached to the same side of the Pole as the AP screw we just installed. The EP screw should be snug, but not too tight:

Then, fit the Pole Base to this location on the underside of the Gurney Bed as shown, and secure it into place with four (4) YP screws.

The position of the black AP screw indicates the orientation in which to fit this part:

Finally, clip the C-clamp of the Wheel Lock onto the Left Front Wheel Leg as shown.

You should now be able to fold and extend this Wheel Leg:

Step 04

Fit the Proton Pack Support Brackets to the back of the Proton Pack Supports as shown, then secure them with four (4) GP screws:

Thoughts


I checked some photographs and the colors and shape of these Proton Pack Support assemblies are accurate – minus a layer of low pile carpet on the support surface. I thought I was going to have to repaint these parts, but they are quite accurate. Do be careful not to bend the Proton Pack Support Brackets too much as I fear we could break them.
