Removed the trunnion hold down bracket using 5/16 nut driver. Slid strpped trunnion off screw shaft. Washed screw shaft with low odor mineral spirits to remove old grease. Applied grease supplied with order to threads in new trunnion and screw shaft. Screwed trunnion onto screw shaft until it reached trunnion housing. Aligned trunnion with trunnion housing and then turned screw shaft counter-clockwise until trunnion was seated. Replaced hold down bracket and that was it!
