Check flange axial runout.
NOTE: This check must always be carried out when replacing pinion seal/drive flange or when reconditioning the rear axle.
Install dial gauge with magnetic holder to fixture 999 5661
Axial runout must not exceed 0.05 mm (0.0019"). If axial runout exceeds this value move the flange on the pinion.
NOTE: Use a new nut every time.
NOTE: Do not exceed a tightening torque of 200 Nm (147.6 ft.lb.). Check axial runout again.
Mark up the lowest point (where axial runout is greatest) on the edge of the flange. Use a colored pen. This marking should be as close the viscous
coupling marking as the position of the holes allows.
NOTE: For Drive flange replacement refer to Drive/Propeller shaft section on balancing procedure. See: Drive/Propeller Shafts, Bearings and
Joints/Service and Repair
