How to Replace V1 Encoders with V2

Learn how to replace the V1 encoders with the newer style V2 encoders

In this video, we’re going over how to replace the version 1 encoders with version 2.

You will receive a kit that looks like this. It includes: 

  • The encoder sensor, mount and hardware
  • Spacers, bolts, to connect to assembly to the pump
  • And the geared encoder disc

First, assemble encoder itself, feed the cable through slot, make sure the flat part of the encoder is towards the curved part of the sensor mount.  The notch faces up.  This is 

incorrect, this is correct.  

This is what it should look like: flush, aligned to top.

Next, remove the wheel, and remove the v1 encoder setup.  Remove the encoder disc. Remove the cable and disconnect from housing, then disassemble and remove the v1 encoder and sensor.

Next, time to put the new v2 encoder on.  

Reinstall the lower mounting nut on the pump. Also install a washer and the metal standoffs to the other two mounting bolts. Tighten all three of these to 60 ft-lbs of torque.

Next, place a spacer and a washer on each side of the encoder mount.  Install assembly and secure with 60 foot pounds of torque.

Place the geared encoder disk onto the wheel studs. Make sure the teeth are on the inside, closest to the pump and the flat surface facing outward.

Align the sensor head, so that it is 0.05 inches (or 50 thousandths of an inch) away from the encoder teeth.  Use a feeler gauge to appropriately gap the sensor.  To move and align loosen and tighten the two bolts attaching the encoder reader to the sensor mount.

Feed through cable through the chassis, secure the cable to the hydraulic line using a ziptie, and reconnect the sensor to the harness.

Make sure to avoid the brake spring and other moving parts when you reinstall the cabling.

Once done, please call or text Greenzie support to make a quick software change to support the new v2 encoders, and ensure they’ve been installed correctly.
