INTEGRAL SLAVE GEAR
The Sheppard 92-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 pinion gear/sector shaft
Disassembly of the slave gear requires the removal
of the cylinder head and the pinion cover/mounting
The sector shaft assembly is removed and the piston
is pulled out of the housing bore.
The sector shaft bearings and seals are serviced
using the same procedures outlined in the 92-Series
Service Manual #1000485.
On reassembly, the timing marks on the piston rack
and the sector shaft must be carefully timed using
the same procedure as the master gear.
92-Series slave gear models use seal rings on the
ends of the power piston.
New seals are installed by placing the back-up
O-ring in the piston groove and installing the teflon
seal ring over it.
