Bevel gear box

Recommended Posts

richp
Quick question, on the input shaft on the inside gear end of my bevel gear box, there is A 5/16 bolt and washer holding the gear and bearing in place. My question is, what type of washer is used- is it A plain flat washer or A spring washer that preloads the bearing inner race? I took it apart and this bolt was loose, causing the assy. to move around(play).Thanks for any input in advance. Rich.

Being you don't want that to happen again I think you want to use a bevelle washer and locktite the bolt in place. Some use 2 compression washers. Also while you are there make sure the 4 mounting bolts that fasten the box to the frame by the rear drive shaft are tight - they tend to loosen up every 10-20 years.

All the boxes I've had apart,,,and I've had a few!use 2 special thin belvale type washers,avail from the guy you don't want to use...THE DEALER!! Also if you do not use the special 'thin headed bolt[ avail. from same dreaded person!] to hold them in when box is re-assembled you won't be able to turn it with a 4' pipe wrench,as the head of a normal size bolt WILL jam against the driven shaft[long shaft] Happy wrenching! dlc

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
