Make sure that interiors of case and housings are clean. kept out of the transmission during reassembly. Dirt is bearings and washers. Use certain precautions, as listed
It is important that dirt and other foreign materials be an abrasive and can damage polished surfaces of below, during reassembly.
GASKETS - Use new gaskets throughout the transmission as it is being rebuilt. Make sure all gaskets are installed. An omission of any gasket can result in oil leakage or misalignment of bearing covers.
CAPSCREWS - To prevent oil leakage, use Loctite 242 thread sealant on all capscrews. For torque ratings, see TORQUE RECOMMENDATIONS.
O-RINGS - Lubricate all O-rings with silicon lubri- cant.
ASSEMBLY - Refer to the illustrations provided in the detailed disassembly instructions as a guide to reassembly.
INITIAL LUBRICATION - Coat all limit washers and splines of shafts with Lubriplate during reas- sembly to prevent scoring and galling of such parts.
AXIAL CLEARANCES - Maintain original axial clearances of .005” to .012” for mainshaft gears.
BEARINGS - Use of flanged-end bearing drivers is recommended for the installation of bearings. These special drivers apply equal force to both bearing races, preventing damage to balls/rollers and races while maintaining correct bearing align- ment with bore and shaft. Avoid using a tubular or sleeve-type driver, whenever possible, as force is applied to only one of the bearing races. See TOOL REFERENCE.
UNIVERSAL JOINT COMPANION FLANGE OR YOKE - Pull the companion flange or yoke tightly into place with the output shaft nut, using 450-500 foot-pounds of torque. Make sure the speedome- ter drive gear or a replacement spacer of the same width has been installed. Failure to pull the com- panion flange or yoke tightly into place will permit the output shaft to move axially with resultant damage to the rear bearing.
IMPORTANT: REFER TO THE APPROPRIATE ILLUSTRATED PARTS LIST (SPECl- FIED BY MODEL SERIES) TO ENSURE THAT PROPER PARTS ARE USED DURING REASSEMBLY OF THE TRANSMISSION.
