6-38. TRANSFER GEAR ASSEMBLY (Continued).
e. Move the transfer gear assembly
forward and pilot the drive
shafts straight into the hubs of
drive gears. Continue to move
the assembly forward and engage
the splines of drive shafts with
splines in hub of drive gears.
If the splines on the drive shafts do not readily engage those in the gear hubs,
press forward on the gear assembly and, at the same time, turn the driven shaft
drive flange slightly to align the splines. If one drive shaft enters and the other
does not, bar the engine of the non-engaging gear over by hand until the shaft
enters the splines in gear hub.
f. With the drive shafts entered
into the hubs of drive gears,
continue to push the assembly
forward to enter the driven shaft
pilot bearing and the drive gear
bearings straight into bearing
bores in the adaptor plate. Push
the assembly forward over the
dowel pins and against the
adaptor plate gasket.
