remove shims (8, 9, or 10, FIG. 2-12) to bring the
backlash within these limits.
(a) Install bearing (5).
(b) Install a new oil seal (16) in retail
(17). Inspect seating surface of spacer (14) to sure the
seal is not damaged by contact with rough surface.
(c) Install spacer (14) and retainer (17
with oil seal (16) on pinion shaft (15).
(d) Warm and install bearing (7) on
pinion shaft (15). Be sure the inner race is seated firmly
against spacer (14).
(e) Place spacer (6) on pinion shaft
(15) and insert entire assembly through the bottom of
bore in the revolving frame. Block the pinion shaft so
that it cannot drop out.
Working through the access
opening the revolving frame top, install bearing (5), gear
(4), washer (3), and capscrews (1). Do not lockwire the
capscrews at this time.
Install a new O-ring (18) in
retainer (11). Install shim (8, 9, and 10) and gasket (19)
Install retainer (11) with O-ring (18) in place in the
retainer and secure in position with six nuts (12) and
