Crankshaft Gear Installation
To make crankshaft gear timing and installation easier, remove the idler gear assembly as detailed in
Position the gear (2) on the rear end of the crankshaft (3) with the bolt holes in the gear aligned with the
tapped holes in the crankshaft. One bolt hole is off set so the gear can be attached in only one position.
Start the bolts (4) through the gear (2) and into the crankshaft (3). Then draw the gear tight against the
shoulder of the crankshaft. Tighten the bolts to 39 ft lb (53 Nm).
Install the idler gear assembly as detailed in b. Idler Gear Installation preceding.
On 6V-92 engines an oil seal sleeve may be pressed on the rear end of the crankshaft to provide a replaceable wear
surface for the rear oil seal contact area.
Install the oil seal sleeve (1) as detailed in following text if necessary.
Stone the high spots from the oil seal contact surface of the crankshaft (3) and wipe clean.
Coat the area of the crankshaft where the sleeve will be positioned with shellac or equivalent sealant.
Press the sleeve on the shaft using oil seal sleeve installer J21983, handle J8092 and guide studs
(d) Wipe off any excess sealer.
Make sure to install the proper oversize seal into the flywheel housing see para. 3-8.6
