make sure the input shaft assembly
(29) is at the bottom of its travel.
(b) Use a dial indicator and mount to
differential carrier housing (5). Place
the indicator pointer against the top of
the input shaft (25). Set the dial

(c) Place the output bearing cage (13) in a
vise with soft jaws. Use a press or
sleeve to press internal bearing cup
(18) in bearing cage (13). Two bearing
cones (17) must be pressed onto shaft
(16). Install outer bearing cup (18) into
position in output cage (13) and press
into position over bearing cone (17).
