Make sure pinion shaft does not
move while backlash is being
measured. Incorrect readings
Hold pinion shaft (3) so differential gear (2)
does not move.
Turn differential gear (2) counterclockwise
until gear takes up backlash.
Shaft from dial indicator must be
at 90 degree angle to face of
tooth when in contact.
Install dial indicator on face of differential
gear (2) tooth.
Turn differential gear (2) clockwise until
Backlash should be 0.010 to
0.013 in. (0.254 to 0.330 mm).
Record differential gear (2) to bevel gear
backlash measured on dial indicator.
If backlash is not correct, adjust adjusting
shim (39) until proper backlash is obtained.
