(14) Install the bearing preload spacer (22) onto
the pinion shaft (18).
Use axle input gear and pinion
nut from two-speed range box
Do not install oil seal in bearing
retainer cap at this time.
(15) Install bearing retainer cap (21),
bearing (23), axle input gear (24), and pinion
nut (25) on pinion shaft (18). Tighten nut
325 lb-ft (440 N-m).
(16) Attach spring scale to bearing retainer
A 0.001 in. (0.025 mm) change in
bearing preload spacer thickness,
changes spring scale reading by
approximately 10 lbs (4.5 kg).
(17) Pull spring scale until bearing retainer
cap (21) begins to turn. Check that spring
scale reads 5 to 14 lbs (2.3 - 6.4 kg) while
bearing retainer cap is moving. If spring
scale reading is too high or too low, replace
bearing preload spacer until the correct
spring scale reading is obtained.
