The minor load is now fully applied. 9.Turn zero adjuster control of the dial gage until the set line is aligned behind the long pointer. 10.Push down on load release bar to apply the major load. 11.When the long pointer comes to rest, within 2-3 seconds, return the crank handle to its forward position.
