a. For proper positioning of the pinion it
may be necessary to adjust the shim thickness
b e h i n d the forward bearing retainer. To
determine the shim thickness, proceed as
(1). Take distance "D" from the housing
mounting face to the imaginary intersection
of the two shafts, which is stamped on the
(2). From "D" subtract mounting distance
"A", (etched on rear of pinion) (see figure
8-16) plus width across bearing races "B"
(see NOTE below). The remainder equals the
Example: D - (A + B) = Shim Thickness
NOTE FOR DIMENSION "B": To measure the
bearing thickness, insert bearing cone into
