9-6. REAR PLANETARY WHEEL ENDS REPLACEMENT (CONT)
Assemble planetary spider (1) parts
(5 through 8).
Apply a thin film of gear lubricating
oil to bore of planetary gear (8).
Slide planetary gear and washer (7)
onto planetary pinion shaft (6).
Use care when installing snap and
retaining rings. Snap and retaining
rings are under spring tension and
can act as projectiles when released
and could cause severe eye injury.
Install snap ring (5) onto planetary
pinion shaft (6).
Repeat Steps (a) and (b) for second and third sets of planetary gears (8), washers (7), and snap
Install planetary gear assemblies.
Remove dirt, grease, or moisture from the mating surfaces of planetary spider (1) flange and
wheel hub (2) mounting face.
Dry both surfaces.
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 continuous bead of silicone RTV-732 clear sealing compound approximately 1/8 in.
(3.175 mm) in diameter completely around the hub mounting face and around the inner edge
of all fastener holes to assure complete sealing and prevent leakage.
Assemble components immediately to permit silicone RTV-732 clear sealing compound to
spread evenly. Failure to do so could cause axle to leak.
Start planetary spider (1) onto wheel hub (2), aligning teeth of planetary gears (8) with sun
gear (9) and ring gear (10) teeth.
