8-5. FRONT DIFFERENTIAL CARRIER ASSEMBLY - REPLACE/REPAIR/ADJUST (Contd)
INSTALL DIFFERENTIAL CARRIER (2) INTO AXLE
Inside of axle housing and mounting flange where carrier fastens
should be clean and dry before installing carrier.
Install companion flange (4), washer (5) and nut (6)
onto bevel pinion (12).
Minor concentrations 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 inch bead of silicone RTV-732 clear
sealing compound to mounting surface of axle
housing (3) that differential carrier (2) fastens.
Install differential carrier (2) into axle housing (3).
Four initially installed capscrews (7) must be evenly spaced to
prevent uneven pressure on differential carrier (2) 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
(3). Hand tighten.
