They should be dried with lint free shop tow- els. Seal surfaces must be flat within 0. It is quite a tribute to any manufacturer when their brand name comes to be used as simple shorthand for the item that they make. This will load the bearings and change the noise level. Worn, damaged differential bearings usually pro- duce a low pitch noise. The higher the class number, the greater the bolt strength. Check components for correct torque.
Inspection also helps to ensure safe operation of the vehicle. Remove axle shaft from axle tube. Differential side and pinion gears can be checked by turning the vehicle. The mani- folds use a common gasket at the cylinder head. Instruct the helper to shift the transmission into gear.
This will cause accel- erated wear and contribute to early failure. Bushings must never be lubricated. The coil springs control ride quality and maintain proper ride height. The tag is attached to the housing cover. When inspecting an exhaust system, critically in- spect for cracked or loose joints, stripped screw or bolt threads, corrosion damage and worn, cracked or broken hangers. Connect the exhaust pipe to the engine exhaust manifold.
Disconnect the steering dampener from the axle bracket. Chrysler Corporation reserves the right to change testing procedures, specifications, diagnosis, repair methods, or vehicle wiring at any time without prior notice or incurring obligation. Place the socket receiver against the yoke and around the perimeter of the bearing cap to be removed. The Model 30 axle has the assembly part number and gear ratio listed on a tag. If springs are not at their normal ride position, vehicle ride comfort could be affected and premature bushing wear may occur. Grasp each bumper at the center and jounce the vehicle up and down three times.
Bolt the thermostat intake tube back onto the intake manifold. If the bearings, seals, spider or bearing caps are damaged or worn, replace the complete U-joint. When inspecting an exhaust system, critically in- spect for cracked or loose joints, stripped screw or bolt threads, corrosion damage and worn, cracked or broken hangers. As a result, the pinion gears revolve with the pinion mate shaft but do not rotate around it Fig. If springs are not at their normal ride position, vehicle ride comfort could be affected and premature bushing wear may occur. Remove steering knuckle and ball joint cotter pins.
If joint was noisy or vibrated it should be replaced. Listen for the noise, a mechanics stethoscope is helpful in isolating the source of a noise. Add or subtract the thickness of original depth shims to compensate for the difference in depth vari- ances. Jeep Manuals is powered by and 3. Position the yoke with the socket wrench in a vise.
The mani- folds use a common gasket at the cylinder head. The bottom of the spring seats on a axle pad and is retained with a clip. The spring steel bar helps to con- trol the vehicle body in relationship to the suspen- sion. Install a new cotter pin. The shim pack is placed under the inner rear bearing cup.
Refer to Group 22, Wheels and Tires for diagnosis information. Tighten tool until disc bottoms in housing. Where axle bearing damage is slight, the noise is usually not noticeable at speeds above 30 mph. Repair or replace as necessary. Also, to avoid distorting the yoke, do not over tighten the vise jaws.
After cleaning, the rubber boot must be thoroughly rinsed and dried. The code is used to identify the vehicle in charts, captions and in service procedures. Refer to the decoding chart to determine the identification of a vehicle. The range is 30 to 40 mph, or above 50 mph. The exhaust system must be properly aligned to prevent stress, leakage and body contact. Install new shims if necessary. If a malfunction occurs, the shock absorber must be replaced.
