11. Position retainer (Figure 11, Item 1) against ring gear hub (Figure 11, Item 2) WITHOUT shims. Secure retainer
with three equally spaced capscrews. Tighten capscrews evenly to 40 lb-ft (54 Nm) torque while rotating wheel
Figure 11. Retainer Installation.
12. Carefully measure gap (Figure 12). Using a depth micrometer, measure through a bolt hole in retaining ring to
a heavy feeler gauge held across a threaded bolt hole in spindle. Add thickness of feeler gauge to micrometer
reading and subtract measured thickness of retaining ring to determine gap.
13. Measure shims individually to obtain a shim pack thickness equal to measured gap. To this shim pack add
additional 0.005 in. (0.127 mm) shim.
