English term or phrase:plumb
Using a piece of unistrut furnished, and a level, plumb the front connecting rod of the outer oscillating frame. Secure the oscillator frame to the machine frame with the outer connecting rods vertical.
Alinear verticalmente: "To plumb" not the same as "to plumb in"
Explanation: Didn't see this till after the answer had been accepted, but though Miguel is right in saying that "to plumb in" means to connect the pipes in plumbing work, this is not the meaning here.
"To plumb" here means to align the rod in a strictly vertical position by using a plumb line [cuerda de plomada] (a weight on the end of a cord). This is confirmed by the latter part of the text saying "...with the outer connecting rods vertical."
