  3. Attached the AM73-3/AM73-4 assembly to the AM73-1 [as seen in Diagram 1]
  4. Insert the SS3x8 fully into the AM73-1  [as seen in Diagram 1]
  5. Next attach the AM69 to the AM73-1 with two SF3x5.  At this time you must choose if your going to run the battery forward (F2 position on setup sheets) or backward (F1 position on setup sheets) [as seen in Diagram 1]
  6. Next add one P25 plastic Battery Clamp, and one AM15-1 Battery Nut with two SF3x10 screws onto the end of the AM69 [as seen in Diagram 2]
