FRONT DIFFERENTIAL CARRIER ASSEMBLY REPLACEMENT - CONTINUED
INSTALLATION - CONTINUED
Minor concentration of acetic acid may be produced during application of silicone RTV-732 clear sealing
compound. Adequate ventilation should be provided when silicone RTV is applied in confined areas. Failure
to do so could cause respiratory irritation, headaches and nausea. Eye contact with silicone RTV-732 clear
sealing compound may cause irritation; if eye contact takes place, flush eyes with water for 15 minutes and
have eyes examined by a doctor.
Apply a 1/8 in. bead of silicone RTV-732 clear sealing compound to mounting surface of axle housing (3) that differen-
tial carrier (2) fastens.
Install differential carrier (2) into axle housing (3).
Four initially installed capscrews must be evenly spaced to prevent uneven pressure on differential carrier
when torquing. Failure to do so could cause component failure.
Install four capscrews (7) and flatwashers (8) into corner locations around differential carrier (2) and axle housing (3).
Carefully push differential carrier (2) into position. Tighten four capscrews (7) two or three turns each in a pattern oppo-
site each other.
Torque capscrews in pairs on opposing sides of differential carrier.
Torque capscrews (7) to between 50 and 75 lb-ft. Torque in pairs across from each other.
Install remaining eight capscrews (7), two capscrews (9), two capscrews (10), four flatwashers (11) and eight flatwash-
ers (8). Be sure fasteners are in correct location as noted during disassembly.
Install axle shafts (1) into axle housing (3).
Carefully tip axle housing (3) upright.
Install front planetary wheel ends (WP 0244 00).
Install both disc brake assemblies (WP 0249 00).
Fill axle housing with lubricant (WP 0125 00).
Install wheel assemblies (WP 0134 00).
Install front axle assembly on vehicle (WP 0241 00).
