181 FBI pinion shaft seal

REMOVAL

  1.  Raise and support the vehicle.
  2.  Remove wheel and tire assemblies.
  3.  Remove brake rotors and calipers. Refer to Group 5, Brakes, for proper procedures.
  4.  Mark the propeller shaft and pinion yoke for installation reference.
  5.  Remove the propeller shaft from the yoke.
  6.  Rotate the pinion gear three or four times.
  7.  Measure the amount of torque necessary to rotate the pinion gear with a (in. lbs.) dial-type torque wrench. Record the torque reading for installation reference.
  8.  Using Holder 6958 to hold the pinion yoke, remove the pinion nut and washer.
  9.  Use Remover C-452 and Wrench C-3281 to remove the pinion yoke (Fig. 6).
  10.  Use a suitable pry tool or a slide hammer mounted screw to remove the pinion shaft seal.

INSTALLATION

  1. Apply a light coating of gear lubricant on the lip of pinion seal. Install seal with Installer C-3972-A and Handle C-4171 (Fig. 7).
  2.  Install yoke on the pinion gear with Installer W-162-D, Cup 8109, and Holder 6958 (Fig. 8).

CAUTION: Do not exceed the minimum tightening torque when installing the pinion yoke retaining nut at this point. Damage to the pinion bearings may result.

  1.  Install the pinion washer and a new nut on the pinion gear. Tighten the nut only enough to remove the shaft end play.
  2.  Tighten pinion nut to 217 N·m (160 ft. lbs.).
  3. Rotate the pinion shaft using a (in. lbs.) torque wrench. Rotating torque should be equal to the reading recorded during removal, plus an additional 0.56 N·m (5 in. lbs.) (Fig. 9).
  4.  If the rotating torque is low, use Holder 6958 to hold the pinion yoke, and tighten the pinion shaft nut in 6.8 N·m (5 ft. lbs.) increments until proper rotating torque is achieved.

  1. Align the installation reference marks on the propeller shaft and yoke, and install the propeller shaft.
  2.  Check and fill the gear lubricant. Refer to the Lubricant Specifications for gear lubricant requirements.
  3.  Install the brake rotors and calipers. Refer to Group 5, Brakes, for proper procedures.
  4.  Install wheel and tire assemblies.
  5.  Lower the vehicle.
