The instruction manual for Strv m / 21-29 is in folio and therefore difficult to copy and distribute. We have made a copy of it in A4 size. The instruction manual also contains a number of explanatory figures, which have now been included in the copy.

The engine is mounted in the body and the steering gear is put on the underbody. The construction is a bit odd because the engine and the gearbox are attached into the body while the steering gear is attached both in the body and the underbody.
The next step is to mount the body on the underbody, lift up the steering gear and mount the brackets. I’m getting a little worried about thinking of the job that’s left; crowded, hard-to-reach and bad workplaces.
We discovered that the steering gear did not work correctly when we turned to the right. Now the problem has been fixed, but it took some time and a lot of thought was needed to determine what the error was, but also to understand how the steering gear actually works.
The engine frame is mounted in place in the body.
The steering gear is checked and adjusted after the test runs and as soon as all parts are mounted we lift the steering gear onto the underbody.
Finally it is time to assemble the body and the underbody to a unit.
