Install dust cover (6) on flange assembly (5).
Flange assembly should be positioned so large openings of flange assembly align with slots
of pinion shaft. This will ease staking of nut.
Install flange assembly (5) on pinion shaft (3).
Adhesives, solvents, and sealing compounds can burn easily, can give off harmful vapors, and
are harmful to skin and clothing. To avoid injury or death, keep away from open fire and use
in well-ventilated area. If adhesive, solvent, or sealing compound gets on skin or clothing,
wash immediately with soap and water.
Coat threads of pinion shaft (3) with adhesive.
Apply adhesive to face of flange assembly (5) where adjusting nut (4) seats.
With the aid of an assistant and using flange holder and socket, install adjusting nut (4) on pinion shaft
(3). Tighten adjusting nut to 680 to 796 lb-ft (922 to 1079 N.m).
Ensure adhesive has squeezed out around entire outside diameter of adjusting nut (4). If adhesive is not
visible around entire outside diameter of adjusting nut (4), remove and discard adjusting nut (4) and
repeat Steps (83) through (84).
Stake adjusting nut (4) in two slots of pinion shaft (3) directly 180 degrees apart.
