DISASSEMBLE CENTER HOUSING
(SHEET 5 OF 19)
Remove thrust washer bearing (35) from underside of
assembly removed in Step 27 or from left steer and
output sun gear (36).
Using screwdriver, remove retaining ring (34) from
brake clutch drum (33).
Remove output planetary (32) from drum (33).
With one hand, press downward on clutch disk (37),
against spring force, near retaining ring (38). Using
long nose pliers, remove retaining ring (38). Using
same method, remove five more retaining rings (38).
Remove disk (37).
When removing, handling, or installing
clutch packs, keep all clutch disks and
plates in the same order and facing the
same way. Under heat and pressure,
clutch plates can take on a conical shape,
Each plate will differ in
degree of coning.
When coned plates are
mixed or turned over, they cannot seat
properly against each other. This can
prevent plates from making adequate
surface contact with each other for the
clutch pack to operate effectively.
When one clutch disk or plate needs to be
replaced, replace the entire clutch pack.
Individual clutch plates should not be
replaced, because such new plates will not
have the surface contour of adjoining
older plates, decreasing effectiveness of
the clutch pack.
33 Remove left brake clutch pack (39) consisting of
eleven disks and plates.
34 Remove six helical compression springs (40).
