(2) Install the bearing housing (14) and driving spider (18) assemblies on the clutch shaft (4). Use the same
number of gaskets (2) or shims between the bearing housing and transmission case as were used before
removal. These shims and gaskets are used to adjust the meshing clearance between the bevel gears and
bevel pinion on the master clutch shaft. Be careful not to adjust the meshing clearance too tight. The
meshing clearance is properly adjusted when a slight play can be noticed in the meshing.
(3) Install and tighten the bearing housing screws (24) and lockwashers (25).
(4) Install the shaft bearing spacers (6).
(5) Install the outer bearings (9) and hub spacers (11).
(6) Install the lockwashers (19) and locknuts (20). Turn the locknuts (20) clockwise to adjust the bearings.
The bearings are properly adjusted when there is no binding or excessive side play as the shaft is turned by
(7) Bend the ear of the lockwasher (19) over the locknut (20).
(8) Install the oil seals (21) and thrust washers (22).
(9) Install the outer shaft keys (28) and forward and reverse clutches (par. 200g).
First Countershaft Bearing Tube
Unlock the cotter pin (1) and drive it out from the first countershaft (13) with a small drift. Discard the cotter
Unscrew and remove the slotted nut (2) and retainer washer (3).
Use standard gear puller (41-6279,.330.500) and pull the pinion gear (4) off the countershaft (13).
Remove the pinion gear key (15).
Block the countershaft gears inside the transmission case to prevent them from shifting when the bearing
tube (9) is removed.
Remove the four screws (17) and lockwashers (16) attaching the bearing tube (9) to the transmission case.
Pull the bearing tube (9) away from the transmission case. If the bearing tube sticks to the case or shaft,
