The swashplate has a notch which locates over a pin in
the housing to prevent improper assembly; however,
mark the housing for proper orientation of the
swashplate during reassembly.
The fixed swashplate and shaft assembly can now be
removed by grasping the shaft and lifting both parts out
of the housing.
The tapered bearing can be pressed off the shaft if
required. Be careful not to damage the seal diameter of
the shaft while removing the bearing. The bearing race
is press fit in the housing. If any of these parts are
replaced, the shaft end play must be checked.
To check the shaft end play, assemble the shaft and
bearings, housing, end cap and gasket. The shaft end
play should be from .006" to .016". If adjustment is
necessary, a shim can be placed under the bearing race
in the end cap.
