Timing and Installation of Auxiliary Countershaft Assemblies
2. IMPORTANT: On the low range gear of each aux- iliary countershaft assembly locate the "O" stamped on one tooth. Align tooth with "O", with smaller deep reduction gear tooth and mark with high visible color of toolmakers' dye.
1. If previously removed, install the bearing inner race on front of each countershaft.
Place one countershaft into position in housing, meshing the marked tooth of countershaft gear with either set of two marked teeth of mainshaft deep reduction gear (inset). Center rear of coun- tershaft in bearing bore, start rear bearing in bore and complete installation with a flanged-end driver and maul. Repeat the procedure with other auxiliary countershaft assembly, making sure the deep reduction gear set remains in time during bearing installation. NOTE: Check synchronizer assembly for springs that may be released during bearing installation.
