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 in. (3.175 mm) bead of silicone RTV-732 clear sealing compound to mounting
surface of axle housing (2) that differential carrier (3) fastens.
Install differential carrier (3) into axle housing (2).
Four initially installed screws must be evenly spaced to prevent uneven pressure on
differential carrier when torquing. Failure to do so could cause component failure.
Install four screws (7) and washers (8) into corner locations around differential carrier (3) and
axle housing (2). Hand tighten.
Carefully push differential carrier (3) into position. Tighten four screws (7) two or three turns
each in a pattern opposite each other.
Torque screws in pairs on opposing sides of differential carrier.
Tighten screws (7) 50 - 75 lb-ft (67.79 - 101.69 N·m). Tighten in pairs across from each other.
Install remaining eight screws (7), two screws (9), two screws (10), four washers (11) and eight
washers (8). Be sure fasteners are in correct location as noted during disassembly.
Install axle shafts (1) into axle housing (2).
Carefully tip axle housing (2) upright.
· Install front planetary wheel ends (Para 8-6).
· Fill axle housing with lubricant (TM 10-3930-673-20).
· Install wheel assemblies (TM 10-3930-673-20).
· Install disc brake assemblies (Para 10-3).
· Install front axle assembly (Para 8-3).
