4-7.5.6 Assembling Drive Assembly (Figure 4-21 H).
Set up the housing on its back (opening up) leaving room under the housing for idler shaft clearance. Install the
spacer (66) onto the transfer shaft (68); then position the woodruff keys (55) in the slots in the shaft. From the
top end of the shaft, install worm gear (67). From the bottom end, install worm gear (65). Then install spacers
(64) and thrust bearing (53) and washer (54) onto each end of the shaft. Position the assembled transfer shaft in
the housing and install the gaskets (63) and end bearings (62).
Install the woodruff key (55) in the slot in the shaft (61). Install the worm gear (59); then install spacers (60) and
(58). Fasten the set screw (57) to hold the spacer and worm gear in position on the shaft. Install a new oil. seal
(49) into the back of the housing in the idler shaft hole. Now position the idler shaft in the housing and, from the
back of the housing, insert the other woodruff key (55).
Install a new oil seal (49) into the cover (47) in the drive shaft hole. Install a woodruff key (55) in the slot near
the middle of the drive shaft (56); then install the worm gear (52). Onto both ends of the shaft, assemble a thrust
bearing (53) and thrust washer (54). On the back end of the shaft, install the retaining ring (51) and the end
spacer (50). Now position the assembled drive shaft in the housing. Apply some light lubricant on a new gasket
(48); the lubricant will hold the gasket correctly positioned on the housing.
Before attaching the cover, be sure all worm gears are properly meshed together. Then, carefully, aline the idler
and drive shafts while installing the cover (47). Be sure the gasket remains properly positioned (observe the
screw holes in the gasket through the screw holes in the cover). Finally, install the four capscrews (45) and
lockwashers (46) to secure the cover to the housing.
Apply a light lubricant to hold the new gasket (71) to the reservoir and assemble the drive assembly housing (70)
onto the reservoir (79), fastening it with the four capscrews (45) and lockwashers (46).
Install the woodruff keys (77) and the cams (76) onto the shaft (78) being sure to position the cams as they were.
Tighten set screws (75). Install the end bearing (62) and gasket (63) and fasten it with the lock nut (72).
Assemble the thrust washer (54) onto the shaft. Install one end of the coupling (74) on the shaft. Position the
assembled cam shaft in place and slide the coupling onto the idler shaft, aligning its keyways. Fasten the
coupling to both shafts with set screws (57).
