REASSEMBLE PIANETARY OUTER END
INSTALL OIL SEAL IN CARRIER HOUSING
Install oil seal in carrier housing at the connecting flange end with a suitable driver. Care must be
exercised to locate the seal squarely against the seal recessed shoulder.
On units incorporating the axle shaft guide plate, start the plate into the end bore evenly with a
hammer. Once plate is started square, drive the plate into position with a suitable driver.
DO NOT strike these hardened steel pieces directly with a steel hammer.
The inner axle shaft oil seals on some planetary models are located in the short bell housing at the
connect- ing flange end. These models employ no axle shaft guide plates and must be installed in the seal
bore squarely by use of a proper driver.
On most of the rigid models the spindle and brake spider assembly end is connected to the housing
flange by bolts, lockwashers, and nuts after the oil seal has been properly installed.
INSTALL HUB SPINDLE ASSEMBLY
Install the inner wheel bearing on the hub spindle.
Position the hub spindle and wheel bearing assembly over the knuckle flange studs.
Place the oil seal and retainer assembly (refer to Fig. 2) over the studs and install the stud nuts.
Older models use oil seal and retainer assembly which is held in place against the spindle by means of a dowel.
Tighten nuts to correct torque.
