FITTING SPIRAL BEVEL WHEEL (CROWNWHEEL) AND DIFFERENTIAL INTO
Apply a thin bead of ' Loctite 641 ', using correct applicator to give a 1/8 " wide band, into bevel casing
strap bores (19) See fig. no. 8.
This is to prevent possibility of diff. bearing cups (17 & 46) spinning in service.
Note :- Assembly and setting procedures are to be completed immediately so as to avoid the
' Loctite ' hardening, and preventing adjustment of bearing cups (17 & 46).
Bevel casing strap (19)
1/8" wide band
Hold diff. bearing cups (17 & 46) in position on diff. bearing cones (17A & 46A) and place spiral bevel
wheel (crownwheel) and differential assembly in position in bevel casing (12).
Fit diff. bearing adjusting nuts (18 & 47) onto half threads of bevel casing legs (12).
Recheck freedom of nuts in threads.
Refit bevel casing straps (19) (by hand) onto bevel casing strap studs (13) to locate on bearing
cups (17 & 46) and adjusting nuts (18 & 47).
Ensuring all matching marks coincide to obviate misalignment of straps (19).
Turn bearing adjusting nuts (18 & 47) hand tight against bearings (17 /17A & 46 / 46A).
Fit bevel casing strap washers and bevel casing strap stud nuts (20 & 21), then tighten nuts to
128 - 142 lbs. ft. (174 - 193Nm.). See fig. no.9.
