Once the location of your ground screws are marked out to suit your build create a pilot hole using a spike or and SDS drill bit. For best results this should be approximately 20mm diameter and approximately 250mm deep to provide a good pilot hole to locate and start your ground screw

Step 2.

Attach the ground screw drive adapter with your Gearbox 1:20 assembly to your ground screws and locate in the pilot hole. Attached the telescopic arm to your machine and secure against a ground spike against the rotation of the machine. The direction of installation is clockwise and removal is anti-clockwise.

Step 3.

Using the bubble level on the machine and/or post level on the ground screw ensure you begin in a vertical position. Use the Gearbox Handlebar Frame to manoeuvre the machine and gently adjust the angle as required to ensure your ground screw is installed vertical. NEVER adjust the angle by applying pressure on the machine, always use the rigid Handlebar Frame.
