TRUCK SERVICE MANUAL TM 5-4210-230-14&P-1 hypoid rear axles actually have a greater torque capacity than do the spiral bevel type.  This is possible because the hypoid pinion is larger in diameter and has gear teeth that are larger than those of the spiral bevel pinion having the same number of  teeth  and  same  diameter  ring  gear.    Hypoid  pinions  also have larger tooth areas and more teeth in longer contact with the   ring   gear.      These   design   characteristics   contribute   to greater  strength  and  quieter  final  drive  operation.    However, because   of   this   greater   tooth   contact,   more   attention   is required  when  securing  a  correct  pinion  setting  at  time  of overhaul  or  when  replacing  differential  bearings.    Therefore, every effort must be made to be sure the final setting results in the best possible tooth contact. Fig.  3  Hypoid Type Drive Axle Shafts Many   axle   failures   can   be   attributed   to   the   axle   shafts; therefore,    it    is    most    important    that    shafts    be    installed correctly,  be  of  correct  size  and  length  for  splines  to  engage fully, have wheel bearings adjusted properly, and be kept free from runout or bends. Fig.  4 illustrates the axle shaft and bearing arrangement on a full-floating rear axle. Axle Housing In  most  cases  the  axle  housing  used  for  IH  trucks  is  of  one piece  construction  with  opening  in  center  for  mounting  the differential and carrier.  The outer ends of the axle housing are welded  in  place  to  provide  mounting  for  the  brake  backing plates.    A  bent  axle  housing  can  be  the  cause  of  early  axle failure, and whenever an axle is rebuilt, this condition should always  be  checked  before  going  ahead  with  the  assembly. Fig.  5 gives a quick way of checking for a bent housing.

Jack up truck until load is removed from springs and place   blocks   under   frame   to   safety   secure   truck weight off of rear wheels. 2. Drain differential housing. 3. Disconnect   brake   lines   and   parking   brake   cables (where used). CTS-2095S-CHAPTER I-Page 4 PRINTED IN UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
