Run micrometer thimble down to
measure distance between center of
ring gear and step plate.
Nominal dimension tolerance is
3.4725 inches (88.20 mm).
Look for etched markings on pinion
gear (5) which show variations from
zero cone setting.
If marking from step h above is a minus
figure, subtract it from 3.4725 inches
If marking from step h above is a plus
figure, add it to 3.4725 inches
Comparison of corrected nominal dimension with the actual or measured dimensions indicates the
amount of change necessary for correct pinion gear position. It may be necessary to add or remove
shims between pinion cage and carrier.
