are parallel, insert a feeler Correct axial clearance
less than the minimum .005" tolerance, the limit washer in the 2nd speed gear should be replaced by a thinner limit washer. This will increase the axial clearance between the gears. If the clear- ance checked is greater than the maximum .012"
a thicker limit
