REASSEMBLY OF AXLE
The following instructions describe the procedure to be
followed when reassembling and installing components
of axle. Instructions cover reassembly of only one side of
axle. Reassembly of opposite group is identical unless
IMPORTANT: Both Grade 5 and Grade 8 fastening
hardware have been used in the production of the
axle assemblies covered by this manual. A table of
proper torque values for both Grade 5 and Grade 8
hardware is provided at the rear of this manual. Grade
of hardware may be determined by the "hash" marks
contained on the head of each bolt; Grade 5 having
three hash marks and Grade 8 having six hash marks
as indicated below. In all cases except where specified
in text, use torque value specified in table for appli-
