REAR DIFFERENTIAL CARRIER ASSEMBLY MAINTENANCE - CONTINUED
ASSEMBLY - CONTINUED
When installing bearing cups into bearing bores of differential carrier, apply loctite to bearing bores of dif-
ferential carrier and bearing caps. Do not allow loctite to get into adjusting ring threads.
Apply thin bead of loctite to bearing bores of differential carrier (7) legs and bearing caps (1). Do not apply loctite to
adjusting ring (3) threads.
Install two bearing cups (6) over bearing cones (9 and 10) on case halves (13 and 20).
· Use caution when handling heavy parts. Provide adequate support and use assistance during procedure. Ensure
that any lifting device used is in good condition and of suitable load capacity. Keep clear of heavy parts sup-
ported only by lifting device. Failure to follow this warning may cause injury or death.
Use a suitable sling and hoist to carefully lift differential and ring gear (6 thru 18) as an assembly and install into differ-
ential carrier (7). Bearing cups (6) must be flat against bores between differential carrier (7) legs.
Install bearing caps in correct location to avoid thread damage by cross-threading adjusting rings, when
installed, or mismatching bearing caps.
Install bearing caps (1) over the assembled bearing cups and bearing cones (9 and 10). Use match marks made during
disassembly to match original location of bearing caps.
Install capscrews (4) and flatwashers (5) and hand-tighten.
Install adjusting rings, using care not to cross-thread the rings or the caps. A plastic or leather mallet can be
used to align the rings and caps during installation. DO NOT force adjusting rings. Damage to threads may
Install adjusting rings (3) and tighten hand tight against each bearing cup (6).
Torque capscrews (4) to 110-145 lb-ft (149-197 Nm).
