CARGO BED COVER (CBC), TYPE IV, 5 T CARGO TRUCK, MTV, AND MTV TRAILER
Installing the rear mounting plate section. To install the rear mounting plate section (13) to the CBC,
position the section under the threshold (14) of the CBC so that the face of the mounting plate section
with the applied weather stripping faces DOWN and toward the vehicle bed. The threshold is the area on
either side of the personnel door opening.
Press the mounting plate up (13) into position and align the holes on the mounting plate with the holes in
the threshold (14). Align the holes at the ends of the rear mounting plate with the holes on the side wall
carrier mounting angle sections nearest the corners of the CBC.
Have a second person hold the mounting plate section in position and install a total of four, 5/16-18 UNC
x 1 1/4 inch long carriage bolts (15) up through the mounting plate and the holes in the CBC threshold on
either side of the personnel door opening. Install one 5/16 inch flat washer (16) over the end of the bolt
and against the surface of the threshold (14) followed by a 5/16 inch lockwasher (17) and 5/16 UNC hex
Install four, 5/16-18 UNC x 1 inch long carriage bolts (8) up through the ends of the rear mounting plate
(13) and the holes in the CBC carrier mounting angles along the side walls nearest the corners. Install
one 5/16 inch flat washer (9) over the end of the bolt and against the surface of the carrier mounting
angle followed by a 5/16 inch lockwasher (10) and 5/16 UNC hex nut (11).
Install three, 5/16-18 UNC x .63 inch long pan head screws (19) DOWN through the section of the CBC
threshold at the door opening and into threaded inserts (20) mounted in the mounting plate with a 5/16
inch lockwasher (21) under each head.
Hand tighten all hardware. Do not tighten securely at this time.
Installing the left side (driver or roadside) mounting plate section. Before installing the side
mounting plate sections (1,12), lift the CBC with the hoisting sling and reposition the supporting blocks
under the front and rear mounting plate sections that were installed earlier. This will allow access to the
side walls of the CBC.
The holes for the side mounting plate sections may be partially obscured
by the weather stripping installed earlier. To install the carriage bolt
properly, move the weather stripping aside slightly to gain access to the
hole. Install the carriage bolt so that it seats properly against the
mounting plate. Make sure that the square portion under the head of the
bolt fits into the square hole of the mounting plate. Reposition the
weather stripping over the head of the carriage bolt.
Install the left side mounting plate section (1) in the same fashion as for the front (2) and rear (13)
sections detailed above. Be sure to butt the ends (3) of the side section with the additional sections of
weather stripping against the end (4) of the front section (2) and rear section (13).
Press the left side mounting plate section (1) up into position and align the holes (5) on the mounting
plate with the holes (6) on the carrier mounting angles (7).
