Lower the temperature of bearing cup (64), and install it
in housing (63). Install bearing (65) in the housing.
Install housing (63) on pinion (62). Install washer (61).
Install tab washer (59) and nut (60) on the pinion. Hold
the pinion from rotating while using Tool (H) (Item 1) to
tighten nut (60). Install Tool (H) (Item 3) on the splines
of the pinion. Use Tool (H) (Item 3) and a torque
wrench to check the pinion bearing preload (rolling
torque). The pinion bearing preload (rolling torque)
should be 1.1 to 4.6 N m (10 to 40 lb-in). If the bearing
preload is not correct, it will be necessary to tighten or
loosen nut (60).
Install tab washer (56) and nut (57) on the pinion.
Tighten nut (57) to a torque of 68 to 136 N m (50 to 100
lb-ft). Recheck the pinion bearing preload (rolling
torque) as described in Step 40.
When the correct pinion bearing preload (rolling torque)
is obtained, bend tab washers (59) and (56) to hold the
nuts in place.
Install retaining ring (58) on the pinion.
Install pinion assembly (51) in the differential housing.
Use two persons to install differential assembly (48) on
the sun gear of the right side axle assembly.
Use lifting straps and a hoist to position left side axle
assembly (9) on the differential housing, and install the
11 bolts. Tighten the bolts to a torque of 190 to 230
Nm (140 to 170 lb-ft). Position bracket (8) on left side
axle assembly (9), and install the two nuts. Tighten the
nuts to a torque of 170 to 190 N m (125 to 140 lb-ft).
