Minor concentrations of acetic acid may be produced during application of silicone RTV-
732 sealing compound. Adequate ventilation should be provided when silicone RTV-732
clear sealing compound 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. (3.18 mm) bead of silicone RTV-732 clear sealing compound to differential
mounting surface of axle housing (3). Be sure to apply sealing compound around each tapped
hole of mounting surface.
Be sure bearing caps of differential fit inside lugs inside of axle housing. Do not force
differential into housing or damage will occur to housing and differential.
Install differential carrier (3) in axle housing (2).
First four installed screws must be evenly spaced to prevent uneven pressure on
differential carrier when torquing. Failure to do so could cause component damage.
Install four screws (4) and washers (5) into corner locations around differential carrier (3) and
axle housing (2). Hand tighten.
Carefully push differential carrier (3) into position. Tighten four screws (4) two or three turns
each in a pattern opposite each other.
Tighten screws in pairs on opposing sides of differential carrier.
Tighten screws (4) to 50 - 75 lb-ft (67.79 - 101.69 N·m) Tighten in pairs across from each
Install remaining eight screws (4), two screws (6), two screws (7), four washers (8) and eight
washers (5). Be sure fasteners are in correct location as noted during disassembly.
Carefully install axle shafts (1) in axle housing (2) so not to damage bushings or seals in axle
Carefully move axle housing (2) to upright position.
