To make the installation easier, remove the machine from the carriage.

Remove the left front wheel. Install the EdgeRider wheel without the sliding hub using the 1-1/4 bolt and one thin washer between the wheel and the body of the machine, as the picture shows. Place another washer on the other side of the wheel as well.

ON NON-STITCH REGULATED MACHINES

Repeat the wheel installation procedure for the rear left wheel.

ON STITCH REGULATED MACHINES

Remove the bolt and locknut holding the wheel and sensor bracket.

While working on the rear left wheel, keep the spring on the sensor bracket at its original position.

Mount the sensor bracket on the 1-1/2 bolt by the enclosed low profile locknut. Tighten the locknut enough to keep the bracket aligned, but freely moving. Put the wheel on the bolt as the picture shows. Put one thin washer between the wheel and the body of machine.

Mount the wheel/sensor assembly on the machine. Tighten the bolt, so the back of the locknut holds the wheel firmly. Check the looseness of the bracket and adjust the locknut if necessary.
