Install gear shaft (40) and spacer (38) in gear (36).
Install two sets of roller bearings (37) around the gear
shaft. One set of roller bearings goes on each side of
the spacer. Install washers (39) on each side of the
gear. The washers will hold the roller bearings in place.
Clean grease will also help hold the components in
place. Remove gear shaft (40), and install gear (36) in
the carrier. Install gear shaft (40) through the carrier
and gear. Use the same procedure to install the
remaining two gears assemblies in the carrier.
Rotate retaining ring (35) into position, and bend the
ends of the retaining ring down.
Heat bearing (34) to a temperature of 135C (275F)
and install it on the carrier.

Spacer (32) is available in different thicknesses. If
the planetary gear group, axle bearing or axle seal
have been replaced, install a 9R-2443 Spacer
which is 2.06 mm (0.081 in) thick. After checking
the axle shaft rolling torque and end play as
described in Step 9 it may be necessary to use a
spacer of a different thickness.
Put planetary gear group (33) in position in the right side
axle housing. Install spacer (32), washer (30) and axle
retainer bolt (31). Tighten the axle retainer bolt to a
torque of 217 Nm (160 lb-ft).
