(1) Clean cone and rollers (21 and 22) by immersing in cleaning solvent
P-D-680 and slowly moving up and down. Remove from cleaning solvent and
strike larger side of cone against a block of wood to dislodge solidified
particles of lubricant. Immerse again in cleaning solvent and repeat
above until clean. Dry using compressed air. Direct air stream across
cone and rollers to avoid spinning. Dont spin cone and rollers when dry-
ing; rotate slowly by hand to facilitate drying. After drying, lubricate
using clean hypoid gear oil. Keep cone and rollers in a clean area.
Clean remaining parts using cleaning solvent P-D-680 and dry using clean
cloths. Clean planetary gear spider (3) and wheel hub (31) mating sur-
faces using scratch wire brush and cleaning solvent P-D-680. Be sure that
all gasket residue is removed from mating surfaces of these parts.
