Adjustment


Adjustment

PINION GEAR HEIGHT

If the hypoid gear set has been replaced, select the pinion height adjusting washer.

1. Use the formula below to calculate pinion height adjusting washer thickness.

Washer selection equation: T = T0 + (t1− t2)
T: Correct washer thickness T0: Removed washer thickness t1: Old drive pinion head letter H × 0.01 (H: machined tolerance 1/100 mm × 100) t2: New drive pinion head letter H × 0.01 (H: machined tolerance 1/100 mm × 100)

Example:


Example:
T = 3.21 + [(2 × 0.01) − (−1 × 0.01)] = 3.24 T0: 3.21
t1: +2
t2: −1

2. Select the proper pinion height adjusting washer. For selecting adjusting washer, refer to the latest parts information.

CAUTION:
If unable to find a washer of desired thickness, use a washer with thickness closest to the calculated value.

Example:
Calculated value... T = 3.22 mm Used washer... T = 3.21 mm

COMPANION FLANGE RUNOUT

1. Fit a dial indicator onto the companion flange face (inner side of the rear propeller shaft mounting bolt holes).

2. Rotate companion flange to check for runout.

Companion flange runout : Refer to DLN-167, "Companion Flange Runout".

3. Fit a test indicator to the inner side of companion flange (socket diameter).

4. Rotate companion flange to check for runout.

Companion flange runout : Refer to DLN-167, "Companion


Companion flange runout : Refer to DLN-167, "Companion Flange Runout".

5. If the runout value is outside the runout limit, follow the procedure below to adjust.

a. Check for runout while changing the phase between companion flange and drive pinion by 90 step, and search for the position where the runout is the minimum.

b. If the runout value is still outside of the limit after the phase has been changed, replace companion flange.

c. If the runout value is still outside of the limit after companion flange has been replaced, possible cause will be an assembly malfunction of drive pinion and electric controlled coupling, malfunctioning coupling bearing, or malfunctioning of electric controlled coupling.

Inspection

INSPECTION AFTER DISASSEMBLY

Drive Gear and Drive Pinion Clean up the disassembled parts.

If the gear teeth never mesh or line-up correctly, determine the cause and adjust or replace as necessary.

If the gears are worn, cracked, damaged, pitted or chipped (by friction) noticeably, replace with new drive gear and drive pinion as a set.

Bearing
Clean up the disassembled parts.

If any chipped (by friction), pitted, worn, rusted or scratched marks, or unusual noise from the bearing is observed, replace as a bearing assembly (as a new set).

Oil Seal
Whenever disassembled, replace.

If wear, deterioration of adherence (sealing force lips), or damage is detected on the lips, replace them.

Companion Flange
Clean up the disassembled parts.

If any chipped mark [about 0.1 mm, (0.004 in)] or other damage on the contact sides of the lips of the companion flange is found, replace.
