(See Fig. 17). Do not install shims. Tighten the
mounting bolts to approximately 25 lb. ft. torque.
Measure the gap between the rear output shaft front

is equal to this calculated figure or up to . 005 larger.
Install shim pack, Permatex threads of retaining bolts
and tighten to the specified torque.
12. Check rear output shaft end float between shaft and
housing. End float should be between .010 and 015
inches (See Fig. 18).
