ADJUSTING STEER BEVEL DRIVE GEAR BACKLASH AND GEAR TOOTH
ADJUSTING STEER BEVEL DRIVE GEAR BACKLASH AND GEAR TOOTH CONTACT PATTERN Continued
Backlash must be readjusted as next step when shim pack is changed. Refer to step 1.
6. For steer bevel gears etched with a backlash adjustment in 0.018 to 0.022 inch range, this is final setting. For
those in 0.006-- to 0.012--inch range, readjust backlash (after gear tooth contact pattern is satisfactory) to 0.018
7. Install remaining three lockrings on spanner nuts on drive shaft. Be certain that inner ends of rings are seated in
slots in shaft. Lockring tails (viewed from right side of transmission) wrap counter--clockwise around spanner
nuts. Stake edges of ring grooves at several points to retain rings.
8. On the XT--1410--5A transmission, stake edges of ring grooves at approximately 12 places on circumference.
