SOURCE: ring and pinion adjustment

hello sir ...

RING AND PINION TOOTH CONTACT PATTERN.—The ring and pinion tooth contact pattern is used to double-check ring and pinion adjustment. To check the accuracy of your adjustments, coat the ring gear teeth with a thin coat of red lead, white grease, hydrated ferric oxide (yellow oxide or iron), or Prussian blue. Turn the ring gear one way and then the other to rub the teeth together, producing a contact pattern on the teeth. Carefully note the contact pattern that shows up on the teeth where the substance used has been wiped off. A good contact pattern is one located in the center of the gear teeth (fig. 5-21). Figure 5-21 shows several ring and pinion gear contact patterns. Study each and note the suggested correction for the faulty contact

I have a 2004 silverado 1500 and have clunking in rear end and was told I have excessive back lash in ring and pinion gears how do I fix that and how much would it cost?


suggest that you talk with a diff reconditioning specialist center
if you have excessive pinion to ring gear clearance the diff will be making terrible noises not a clunk
what you have is worn side gear washers in the diff carrier and that is not essential to repair unless you get diff noise on turning corners
All diffs have play in the diffs that most people say is pinion /ring gear problems when it is not
the clunk noise comes from engaging a gear and the diff housing reacts to the load ( radius rod bushes , stabilizer bar bushes etc), the side gears take up the clearance, and the
"U " joints or cv joints take any wear
Best advice is--- if all you have is a clunk ( check everything outside the diff first) and the diff runs quiet under acceleration or deceleration, DON'T fix what ain't broken

09 dodge Laramie 1500 4x4 how would I take the pinion nut and crush slave out


you have to disassemble the differential to remove the pinion gear to replace the crush sleave. to remove the pinion nut remove driveshaft then using proper size socket with an air gun remove nut then push out pinion gear from differential. to assemble check clearances of side bearings and pinion/ring gear contact clearances, and proper torque for pinion nut.

I changed the starter and went to try it, now the truck starts but the starter doesnt disengage. i kill the engine and the starter wants to keep it going for a few seconds. i tried again and same thing....


You may need to add shims to increase pinion gear to ring gear clearance !
Inspect the flywheel ring gear for damage or unusual wear.


?€¢
Shim the starter if applicable.


?€¢
In order to add pinion to ring gear clearance a full size shim must be used. Do not shim only 1 starter mounting bolt. There are 3 shims available in different shapes (for clearance). All are 1 mm (0.039 in) thick.


When you took off the old starter did you see any thin strips of metal ?

Rear differential problems


Thing here is that when you do change a gear in a resr diff, you need to adjust the pinion gear(this is called in mecanic's word pre-load of your pinion gear)first witch is achievable by inserting shim washers and tightennig the pinion gear bolt.

Then and only then you can adjust the backlash off your diff (witch is the distance between the pinion gear and the driven gear of your diff.).

failling to do so will either cause damage to your new driven gear or as you are aving problems here not being able to turn the diff cause the backlash doesn't have enought clearance.

Hope this will help you!!

Remove starter on a 1995 aerostar van


Inspect/Test/Service/Replace
  • If your testing indicates that the starter must be removed, the first step is to disconnect the negative cable at the battery.
  • It may be necessary to place the vehicle on a lift to gain access to the starter. Before lifting the vehicle, disconnect all wires, fasteners, and so on that can be reached from under the hood.
  • Disconnect the wires leading to the solenoid terminals.
  • To avoid confusion when reinstalling the starter, it is wise to mark the wires so they can be reinstalled on their correct terminals.
  • On some vehicles you may need to disconnect the exhaust system to be able to remove the starter.
  • Loosen the starter mounting bolts and remove all but one.
  • Support the starter while removing the remaining bolt.
  • Then pull the starter out and away from the flywheel.
  • Once the starter is free, remove the last bolt and the starter.
  • Once the starter is out, inspect the starter drive pinion gear and the flywheel ring gear.

  • When the teeth of the starter drive are abnormally worn, make sure you inspect the entire circumference of the flywheel.
  • If the starter drive or the flywheel ring gear show signs of wear or damage, they must be replaced.
  • Reverse the procedure to install the starter.
  • Make sure all electrical connections are tight.
  • If you are installing a new or remanufactured starter, sand away the paint at the mounting point before installing it. Also, make sure you have a good hold on the starter while installing it.
  • Many General Motors' starters use shims between the starter and the mounting pad.

  • To check this clearance, install the starter and insert a flat blade screwdriver into the access slot on the side of the drive housing. Pry the drive pinion gear into the engaged position.
  • Use a wire feeler gauge or a piece of 0.020-inch (0.5080-mm) diameter wire to check the clearance between the gears.
f17-28.gif Checking the clearance between the pinion gear and the ring gear.
  • If the clearance between the two gears is incorrect, shims will need to be added or subtracted to bring the clearance within specs.
  • If the clearance is excessive, the starter will produce a high-pitched whine while it is cranking the engine.
  • If the clearance is too small, the starter will make a high-pitched whine after the engine starts and the ignition switch is returned to the RUN position.
  • Every starter should be bench tested after it is removed and before it is installed. to conduct a free speed or load test on a starter, see the free speed test.

My 2002 dodge 1500 has 392 rear end gears iwhant 353 gears what do ido


you can remove the axles and the drive shaft then open the differential to remove the carrier gear assembly(ring gear,side gears)then remove the pinion gear.replace these with the new gear set and get the clearance specs for the pinion depth and carrier gear clearance and adjust until within specs.you can either pickup new gear sets or one from the wreckers with the shims to start with.you will need a backlash dial gage to know if the backlash clearance is within specs as well as marking ink to know if the gear mating surface is riding in the proper area of contact.

I need an exploded view of a 1979 ten bolt. Rear axel


There's not much inside there to see. Beginning at the driveshaf yoke, You have the nut that holds the pinion yoke on, a washer under that, a seal in the housing to keep the lube in, the outer pinion bearing another washer (or spacers, a crush collar and possibly a few more washers, the pinion bearing and the pinion gear itself. The carrier has a bearing on both ends held on to the housing by two end caps. Inside or on the housing you have the ring gear,four pinion gears and a shaft that holds the two free pinion gears in. That shaft has a 5/16 bolt in one end to keep it from sliding out of the carrier. The axles protrude through the two side gears and are retained by two "C" shaped retainers that can be removed only when the cross shaft has been removed. Sounds rather simple but, rebuilding them requires a lot of experience and dial indicators in order to get it right. Reading a gear contact pattern is part art, part science and getting it wrong will result in noise and quick failure. If you have a positraction unit, the posi plates and springs go inside the carrier and are a bit complicated to install without damaging them. There are many end to end differentials you can put under there available cheap from a scrapyard. Only requirement is to get the drum to drum length right and if it's a 4x4 the gear ration must match the one at the other end of the vehicle.On some, you may need to cut the spring mounts off and weld them in the proper places.
If you need info on a specific part inside the rear, ask.

I need the torque specs on a rear axle pinion nut for a 2003 Dodge Ram 2500 4/4 Cummins, Automatic.


The pinion nut does not have a torque spec. as in how tight the nut is. The amount of torque is measured in bearing preload. You will need a "torque to rotate" torque wrench. If you are using new bearings the torque spec. is 15-25 in. lbs. If you are using your old bearings the torque spec. is 10-20 in. lbs to rotate. To measure this you will need to tighten the nut in small increments then use the torque to rotate wrench to turn the pinion without the carrier/ ring gear installed. Repeat until desired torque is reached.
