Apply thin bead of sealing
compound to bearing bores (a) of
differential carrier (3) legs and
bearing caps (14). Do not apply sealing compound to adjusting ring (16) threads.
Install two bearing cups (19) over
bearing cones (20 and 21) on case
halves (25 and 26).
Use a sling and hoist to lift
differential and ring gear parts (19
through 26) as an assembly and
install into differential carrier (3).
Bearing cups must be flat against
bores between differential carrier
Install both bearing adjusting
rings (16) into position between
differential carrier (3) legs. Turn
each adjusting ring hand tight
against bearing cup (19).
Install bearing caps (14) over the
assembled bearing cups (19) and
bearing cones (20 and 21) and
adjusting rings (16). Use match
marks made during disassembly to
match original location of bearing
Use a plastic or leather mallet to fit each bearing cap (14) tightly against the bearing
cups (19), adjusting rings (16), and differential carrier (3) legs. If bearing caps do not fit
correctly, check alignment of match marks between bearing caps and differential carrier leg. If
necessary, repeat Steps (f) and (g).
Install two screws (17) and washers (18) that hold bearing caps (14) to differential carrier (3)
legs. Tighten screws by hand four to six turns, then tighten 110 - 145 lb-ft (149.14 -
