Rear Axle spacer and shims

Wed Sep 25, 2013 9:00 pm

Guess I should have spent $ on a service manual before I started this project. Had all parts clean and laid out on table waiting on new bearing and seals. Noticed this evening that the spacer and shims somehow fell on the floor. now I am not sure which goes where. Only drawing I have seen on the net does not help. Would certainly appreciate help from you guys!

Well thanks you guys for the info. Only problem I have now is, I remember taking off the spacer and shims together. The
TC-37C drawing shows them on opposite side of the bull gear. I am certain they were on the same side. If that is so, then someone before me tore into this thing and built it wrong. I will assemble it per the drawing, nothing seems to be worn anywere. Just went into it because of the bad seal outer seal leak. Any other advice ?

Be sure to read through the GSS-1411 Service Manual, in particular Section 6 Transmission And Differential. The shims are there for proper pre-load and backlash on the gears and need to be put back in a proper order. Follow the steps laid out in the Service Manual to make sure it goes back together correctly.

Ok I think I am no longer confused. Finally got a link to work, and when I got to the blow up of the rear axle assy I realized what IH calls "spacer" and ""shim" I was thinking of as all shims. I remember "spacers" on air compressor overhauls being as much as 4" long. Now I feel better about putting it back together tomorrow. Wish me luck, please. Thanks
