FRONT PLANETARY WHEEL ENDS REPLACEMENT - CONTINUED
INSTALLATION - CONTINUED
If bearings are to be reused, the increase in rolling torque should be 1.5 to 2.5 lb-ft (2.03 to 3.4 Nm).
Install planetary ring gear (13) and sun gear (11).
Install dowel pin (15), if removed.
Locate hole (A) on back of planetary ring gear (13).
Orient ring gear with respect to dowel pin (15) on
wheel hub bearing nut (14).
If pin is not aligned with hole (A) of ring
gear, spider assembly will not fit tight to
Install planetary ring gear (13). It may be necessary to
turn hub bearing nut (14) to match hole (A) on back of
planetary ring gear (13). Hub bearing nut may be
tightened to match dowel pin (15) with planetary ring
gear, but torque on hub bearing nut should not exceed
150 lb-ft (203 Nm).
Install sun gear thrust washer (12), sun gear (11) and new spindle snap ring (9). Tangs on thrust washer must engage
slots in ring gear (13).
Apply a thin film of clean lubricating oil to bore of planetary gear (8). Slide planetary gear and outer thrust washer (7)
onto planetary pinion shaft (6).
Install new snap ring (5) onto planetary pinion shaft (6).
Repeat steps 29 and 30 for second and third sets of planetary gears (8), thrust washers (7) and snap rings (5).
Remove dirt, grease or moisture from the mating surfaces of the spider flange and hub mounting face and
dry both surfaces.
