3416 H Shim Question

Recommended Posts

Horvik

In assembling this rebuilt BGB it is shimmed to where the pulley has about 1/16" movement with the input held still, this is using 2 shims about .010 each. Then on the bench is a separate used BGB whose right hand seal is in a bit more, and it has three shims measure .050-.060 total.

My question is do all of the the BGB take different amount of shims, dependant on the application?

 

All the best

I've disassembled a lot of junk tractors over the years and I have not found any real consistency in how many shims are used , or in the thickness of those shims being used.

SmilingSam...I'm finishing up on the BGB rebuild . Tightened the crosshaft with pulley and spacer, tightened it in the frame holding the input shaft fast, and the pulley has about 1/16" lash and no detectable end play in crossshaft.

Sound right?

Thanks
