Bevel gear box

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
