REASSEMBLY - AUXILIARY SECTION (13-SPEED MODELS)
G. Installation of Auxiliary Countershaft Rear Bearings
NOTE: The splitter gear set MUST remain in time during the installation of rear bearings.
Install the snap ring in groove at rear of each countershaft.
1. Center the rear of either countershaft assembly in bearing bore and use a soft bar to start rear bearing in bore. Complete installation with a flanged-end bearing driver and maul. Repeat the procedure with other auxiliary countershaft as- sembly, making sure the splitter gear set has re- mained in time. NOTE: Check the synchronizer assembly for springs that may have been released from bores in high range ring during bearing installation.
3. Position the corresponding new gasket on cover mounting surface and install both rear bearing covers. Tighten capscrews to secure covers to auxiliary housing. NOTE: For reassembly and installation of models equipped with an Auxiliary Oil Pump Assembly on rear of countershaft, see OPTIONS.
