Pinion shaft seal

REMOVAL

(1) Raise and support the vehicle.

(2) Remove skid plate, if equipped.

(3) Remove both C/V driveshafts.

(4) Mark the propeller shaft and pinion companion flange for installation alignment reference.

(5) Remove the front propeller shaft.

(6) Rotate the pinion gear three or four times.

(7) Measure the amount of torque necessary to rotate the pinion with a (in. lbs.) dial-type torque wrench (Fig. 6). Record the torque reading for installation reference.

(8) Install socket head bolts into two of the threaded holes in the companion flange, 180 apart.

(9) Position Holder 6719 against the companion flange and install a hex head bolt and washer into one of the remaining threaded holes. Tighten the bolt and washer so that the Holder 6719 is held to the flange.

(10) Hold the flange with Holder 6719. Remove the pinion nut.

(11) Remove the companion flange with Remover C-452 (Fig. 7).

(12) Using a suitable pry tool, or a slide hammer mounted screw, remove the pinion seal.

INSTALLATION

(1) Clean the seal contact surface in the housing bore.

(2) Examine the splines on the pinion shaft for burrs or wear. Remove any burrs and clean the shaft.

(3) Inspect companion flange for cracks, worn splines and worn seal contact surface. Replace companion flange if necessary.

NOTE: The outer perimeter of the seal is pre-coated with a special sealant. An additional application of sealant is not required.

(4) Apply a light coating of gear lubricant on the lip of pinion seal.

(5) Install seal with Installer C-3972-A and Handle C-4171 (Fig. 8).

(6) Install socket head bolts into two of the threaded holes in the companion flange, 180 apart.

(7) Position Holder 6719 against the companion flange and install a hex head bolt and washer into one of the remaining threaded holes. Tighten the bolt and washer so that the Holder 6719 is held to the flange.

(8) Seat the companion flange on the pinion shaft with Installer C-3718 and Holder 6719.

(9) Remove the Installer C-3718 and install the new pinion nut.

CAUTION: Do not exceed the minimum tightening torque when installing the companion flange at this point. Damage to the collapsible spacer or bearings may result.

(10) Tighten the pinion nut until there is zero bearing end-play (Fig. 9).

(11) Tighten the nut to 271 N*m (200 ft. lbs.).

CAUTION: Never loosen pinion nut to decrease pinion bearing rotating torque and never exceed specified preload torque. If preload torque or rotating torque is exceeded a new collapsible spacer must be installed. The torque sequence will then have to be repeated.

(12) Rotate the pinion shaft using a (in. lbs.) torque wrench. Rotating torque should be equal to the reading recorded during removal plus an additional 0.56 N*m (5 in. lbs.) (Fig. 10).

(13) If the rotating torque is low, use Holder 6719 to hold the companion flange, and tighten the pinion nut in 6.8 N*m (5 ft. lbs.) increments until the proper rotating torque is achieved.

CAUTION: If the maximum tightening torque is reached prior to reaching the required rotating torque, the collapsible spacer may have been damaged.

Replace the collapsible spacer.

(14) Align the installation reference marks on the propeller shaft and companion flange and install the propeller shaft.

(15) Add gear lubricant to the differential housing, if necessary. Refer to the Lubricant Specifications for gear lubricant requirements.

(16) Install both C/V driveshafts.

(17) Install skid plate, if equipped.

(18) Lower the vehicle.
