FORWARD-REAR AXLE DIFFERENTIAL CARRIER REPAIR - CONTINUED
ASSEMBLY - CONTINUED
Install differential carrier (1) on press with legs of differential carrier toward top of press.
Install gear (15) with splines toward front of differential carrier (1).
Install large diameter spacer (59) on top of gear (15) with spacer toward inner bearing cup (62).
Install drive pinion (3) in gear (15). Ensure splines on drive pinion engage splines in gear.
To prevent damage to cup, cone, and drive pinion, do not apply pressure after inner bearing cone touches
inner bearing cup.
Using press, press drive pinion (3) into gear (15) until inner bearing cone (60) touches inner bearing cup (62).
Turn differential carrier (1) over and install supports so that differential carrier is level on press.
To prevent damage to spacer, do not apply pressure after gear touches spacer in front of inner bearing on
Using press and sleeve that fits inside pinion bore of differential carrier (1), press gear (15) on drive pinion (3) until gear
touches spacer (59).
Cut two pieces of lead or solder approximately 9/16-in long, 5/8-in wide, and thicker than spacer removed in disassem-
bly step 45.
Install two lead pieces opposite each other on top of gear (15).
