TRUCK SERVICE MANUAL TM 5-4210-230-14&P-1 PROPELLER SHAFT INSTALLATION INSTALLING DRIVESHAFT Drive Shaft Assembly Place in a pair of centers and check   the   shaft   for   run-out   if   not   previously   done   during assembly.  The run-out on the tube should not be more than .38 mm (.015") indicator reading, and on the neck of the slip stub shaft the run-out should not be more than .12 mm (.005") indicator reading.  Mark the high and low points on the shaft with  chalk  and  straighten  if  necessary.    Install  with  the  slip joint  nearest  the  source  of  power.    Tighten  the  flange  bolts evenly after the nuts and NEW lockwashers are in place. CHECKING DRIVESHAFT ANGLES The  procedure  to  check  driveshaft  angles  for  proper universal joint operating angles follows: 1. Remember  to  check  driveshaft  angles  both  with  the tractor fifth wheel unloaded, and loaded with a trailer. 2. To     determine     driveshaft     angles,     a     spirit     level protractor  is  required  (Fig.    43).  When  angles  are read from the 0 deg.  mark (for example, measuring inter-axle  shaft  angle  5  deg.),  record  and  use  the angle  shown  on  the  protractor.    When  angles  are read from either of the 90 deg.  marks (vertically) for example,  measuring  yoke  angles,  do  not  record  the angle   shown   on   the   protractor   since   the   90   deg. marks must be understood to be the same as 0 deg. on the horizontal plane.  Thus, if a vertical reading is 85 deg., the angle being measured is 5 deg. 3. All    angles    should    be    read    within    1/4    deg.    (15 minutes)   and   they   should   be   measured   with   the protractor held plumb on a clean, flat surface. 4. Inflate   all   tires   to   the   pressure   at   which   they   are normally  operated.    Park  the  tractor  on  a  surface which is as nearly level as possible both from front- to-rear and from side to-side. 5. The tractor must be in its normal operating position. Do  not  attempt  to  level  the  truck  by  jacking  up  the front or rear axles to obtain a level condition. 6.     Check and record the angle on the engine and main transmission.  This reading can be taken at the rear of the main transmission on the output yoke or flange.  Record this reading on a sketch similar to Fig.  44 (Example on Fig.  45, -1 deg.  down). Fig.  43 7. Move  protractor  to  the  0  deg.    reading  and  check driveshaft  angle  between  transmission  and  forward axle (Example 4 deg.  30 sec. down). 8. Check   front   axle   input   yoke   angle   with   protractor (Example angle up 2 deg.  30 sec.), also check front axle  output  yoke  (Example  angle  down  2  deg.    20 sec.). 9. Measure the angle of the tandem driveshaft between the  front  axle  and  first  rear  axle  (Example  5  deg. down). 10. Measure the rear axle input yoke angle (Example 12 deg.  up).
