Ques on Bevel gear box setup

Recommended Posts

Horvik
Hey dere; I have a 3416 H which i installed all new bearings and seals in the bevel gear box. Now, when I install the input shaft, the crossshaft hits on the head of the bolt. I am using 2 compression washers, smae as come off of the pinion, or input shaft gear. . When I reverse the convex compressions washers, then I got clearance. Ditto for using only one washer. SO, what is the right way to go? all the best

well I had the same thing happen to me what I did to correct it was make sure the front bearing is set far enough in, mine was not also tighten the bolt with the 2 washers for the input shaft to the torque setting in the manuel I believe its 25 to 30 ftlbs also there is not much room to slide the shaft through I put the circlips on after I slid the shaft passed the bolt head

I think there is a special thin head bolt, Grade 8 that is used to to hold the gear on. The head thickness is about half of a standard one. Somewhere I remember mention of it.
