Final Drive/Axle Question

Postby rleggitt » Sat May 15, 2004 9:41 pm

Hi All,

Need a little help.
Do you add or remove shims Gp 07/pg 11/item 24 in the IH parts book to
make the final drive gear fit tighter on the axle?
By tighter, I mean the spacing between the two cone bearings on either
side of the axle.

I think you add shims for less preload. Remove shims for more preload. It's been a while since I did mine. But taper bearings need a certain amount of preload to work correct. A drag torque of 10 to 20 inch pounds is necessary to rotate the axle as by the manual. Pup
