CLEANING, INSPECTION, AND REPAIR (SHEET 2 OF 4)
(2) Check forward clutch carrier (17) and
associated parts (13 thru 16) by
rotating pinion gears (15). Pinion
gears must rotate smoothly. Inspect
teeth of pinion gears for cracks,
breaks, or wear. Check gear splines for
cracks, breaks, or wear. If any pinion
gears are damaged or dont rotate
smoothly, replace as follows:
(a) Make special tool shown. This tool is
used to stake pinion spindles (13)
after new pinion spindles are in-
stalled. If you cannot make this
special tool, replace forward clutch
carrier (17) and associated parts (13
thru 16) as a complete assembly.
Do not drill into forward clutch carrier (17). The diameter of pinion
spindles (13) is slightly more than 3/4 inch. Center drill accurately to
prevent drilling into and damaging forward clutch carrier.
(b) Position forward clutch carrier in drill press with hub upward. Using
3/4 inch drill bit, drill into staked
Do not discard pinion spindles (13). They

will be used to aid reassem-
(c) Put forward clutch carrier (17) in hydraulic press. Using 5/8 inch diam-
eter rod, press four pinion spindles (13) from forward clutch carrier.
(d) Remove eight thrust washers (14) and four pinion gears (15) from forward
clutch carrier (17).
(e) Remove 22 rollers (16) from each pinion gear (15).
Temperature of solid carbon dioxide (dry ice) is below -70 degrees F.
Wear insulated gloves to prevent severe skin injury. If skin is injured
by contact with dry ice, flush with large amounts of cold water to raise
temperature above freezing point and obtain medical aid immediately.
(f) Chill four new pinion spindles (13) in dry ice for one hour. If dry ice
is not available, put pinion spindles in a freezer for two hours.
