certain materials to withstand compression, oil, etc.
B. Remove nicks, mars and burrs from machined
or ground surfaces. Threads must be clean and
free to obtain accurate adjustment and correct
torque. A fine mill file or India stone is suitable
for this purpose. Studs must be tight prior to
reassembling the parts. bushings where used as
1 Remove worn bushing. The bushing may
be split with a hacksaw and the halves
2 Remove burrs or sharp corner from inner
edge of pinion bore to prevent shearing or
buckling of bushing on installation.
3. Place pinion on anvil. Position bushing in
inner end of pinion bore and press squarely
into position. Use adaptor with correct size
offset to fit bushing.
4. Use bar to press burnishing ball through
If desired, the bar may be shortened to
permit the use of a bench vise to install and
D. When assembling component parts use a press
where necessary. Avoid hammering.
E. Tighten all nuts to specified torque. See torque
limits following service instructions.
Lock wire must not be brittle; use soft iron wire
to prevent possibility of wire breakage.
