TRANSMISSION REPAIR (Continued)
Align the tapped hole in the support with the
anchor bolt hole in the transmission housing.
Install the center sup-port (30) and seat it firmly
against the second clutch snapring.
Remove the lifter from the center sup-port. Start
a new 3/8-16x3 inch special selflocking bolt and
chamfered washer into the center support
Install the snapring (29) to retain the center
support (28). Place the snapring gaps at the top
of the main case. Torque the center support
anchor bolt to 39-46 ft-lb (53-62 N.m).
Improper installation of butt-joint sealrings may
cause transmission failure.
assembly, lube relief scallops, black oxide race
up, onto the center support hub. Install two
sealrings onto the hub.
(8) Third clutch clearance.
Starting with an external-tanged plate(337),
alternately install the three external-tanged
plates (337) and three internal-splined plates
(338). Note location of the three set of double
tangs. If the tangs are not positioned properly,
movement of the stationary plates will occur.
(b) Install the backplate (339) and retain it with the
snapring (336). Using third clutch clearance
gauge, check the clearance between the
snapring (336) and
backplate (339). The
prescribed clearance for the third clutch is 0.050
to 0.114inch (1.27 to 2.90mm). When this
clearance is achieved, the first step of the gauge
will fit between the snapring and the backplate;
the second step will not.
(c) If the clearance is not satisfactory, measure the
total plate thickness and replace all plates
necessary to satisfy the prescribed clearance. If
required, the backplate (339) may be replaced by
a thicker or thinner plate.
