11.  Install wide part of the felt (#10) around the polish rod and pack it into the inner rod stool. (Felt may need to be cut, depending on rod size.) The thin part of the felt will go through the slot on the inner rod stool. (Felt will sit on the bottom of the JK Junior main body (#7) and wick the lube oil up to the felt wrapped around the polish rod to keep it cool and lubricated.)

a.      NOTE: Ensure the high level switch has the “TOP” marking facing up.

b.      NOTE: Do not apply wrench to round part of switch. Do not leave high level switch sideways.

20.  Remove tagouts

21.  Ensure that spacing between the carrier bar and/or rod clamp and the JK Junior is adequate.

22.  Set rod string weight on the JK Junior. When the lid (#8) is latched on the main body of the JK Junior (#7), the outer stool aligns with the inner stool to support up to 100,000 lbs.. The JK Junior has been tested up to 100,000 lbs. capacity.
