Ranger Survey Running Gear VITAL POINTS TO BE AWARE OF: 1. BRASS BARREL HAS IDENTICAL THREADS AT EITHER END TO ENABLE IT TO BE REVERSED; THIS OPTIMISES ITS WORKING LIFE. 2. Only use minimal amounts of a petroleum jelly or O-ring grease on O-rings and threads. 3. Do not use pipe wrenches on brass barrel joints. 4.

O-rings have a dual function. In addition to their retaining action, they seal the barrel from ingress of drilling fluid. Continually check O-ring condition. 5. Always use correct barrel size for your specific drilling conditions. If youre in doubt about size to use contact your RANGER distributor. NOMENCLATURE Ranger Survey Running Gear ITEM 1 2 3
