INTEGRAL SLAVE GEAR
The Sheppard M-Series integral slave gear is sim-
ple in operation and requires few repairs.
The major components in the slave gear are the
power piston and the sector shaft assembly.
Disassembly of the slave gear requires the removal
of the cylinder head and the sector shaft cover.
The sector shaft assembly is removed and the
piston is pulled out of the housing bore.
The sector shaft bearings and the various seals are
serviced using the same procedures as the master
On reassembly, the timing marks on the piston rack
and the sector shaft must be carefully timed.
The M-Series models use a seal ring on one end of
the power piston. A new seal is installed by placing
the back-up O-ring in the piston groove and
installing the teflon seal ring over it.
