ASSEMBLY

TRANSMISSION ASSEMBLY INFORMATION

Lubricate the transmission components with Mopart 75W-90, GL 3 gear lubricant during assembly.

Use petroleum jelly to lubricate seal lips and/or hold parts in place during installation.

Refer to (Fig. 107) during assembly for AX5 gear assembly identification.

(1) Lubricate transmission components with specified gear lubricant.

(2) If necessary, assemble 1-2 and 3-4 synchronizer hubs, sleeves, springs and key inserts (Fig.

108).

(3) Install third gear needle bearing onto the output shaft.

(4) Install third gear over bearing and onto output shaft flange.
