clearance is not within this range, press the
upper shaft from the upper shaft gear (15) and
add or remove shims (12) as necessary to
obtain the specified clearance.
Note. Do not install the auxiliary shaft driving
gear at this time.

washer (37), and nut on the lower shaft. Tighten
the nut securely and check the end play of the
lower shaft; add or remove shims to obtain .002
inch-.005 inch end play. Tighten nut to 75-85 ft.
lbs. torque and secure with cotter pin.
