Axial preload in an adjusted bearing arrangement with single row angular con-tact ball bearings There are basically two principal methods to adjust preload: individual adjustment and collective F0© Preload force on the pinion shaft (bearing system). δ01 Axial displacement for the pinion head...

- ADJUST DRIVE PINION BEARING PRELOAD Using a torque meter, measure the preload of the back– lash between the drive pinion and ring gear. Preload (starting): New bearing 1.2 – 1.9 N–m (12 – 19 kgf–cm, 10.4 – 16.5 in.–lbf) Reused bearing 0.6 – 1.0 N–m (6 – 10 kgf–cm, 5.2 – 8.7 in.–Ibf)
- Pinion pre-load is the force (pressure) between the pinion bearings (blue) and the pinion bearing's race (yellow). As the pinion nut is tightened it forces the yoke against a "crush sleeve" (red) that is designed to "control" collapse under force. Not enough force from the pinion nut and the crush sleeve holds the pinion bearings too far away from the pinion race resulting in not enough pinion pre-load.
The rear universal flange nut on the pinion shaft is not castellated but assume it also is a right hand thread. Both are being extremely difficult to remove, I am really surprised with the difficulty with the rear pinion nut since it should have been adjusted to a bearing preload drag of 25-30 inch pounds - could it be a left hand thread?
- If you have bearings without any preload at all they will rotate with practically no resistance other than the seals in a sealed bearing. I think what you need to do is tighten the pinion nut to below 180Nm and check the torque needed to rotate the...
Normaly if you use the marking on the pinion to adjust the shim stack behind the bearing and get the tooth mark/ preload set up all is good. If you do not have the origonal shim stack you have to mess arround pushing on and off the pinion bearing to set pinion depth by the tooth mark.
- Pinion Preload (New) Pinion Preload (Reused) Ring Gear Backlash: Ring Gear Bolt Torque: Carrier Bearing Cap Bolts : AAM 9.25" 15 to 25 in-lbs. 10 to 20 in-lbs.
As title says, how do you set pinion preload? I fubard mine when I changed my rear pinion seal and now I have a whining when i let off the gas... about 20 in/lbs if you use new bearings. Once you have the pinion nut tight enough (it takes a lot) where it takes 12 inch pounds to turn it with old bearings and 20...
- Was checking out McMaster lead screws and they have more than one option to consider. Thread Clamps/Super Thread Clamps to be screw onto the lead screw and up against the bearings. This thread was created to find the pros and cons of belt pinions and lead screws.
Setting of this preload is either accomplished by shims or a chrushable sleeve placed between the rear edge of the front bearing and the differential housing. The preload setting is typically measured by the torgue in inch-pounds required to rotate the pinion shaft with the pinion nut tightened to its nominal value (240-300 ft. lbs. on a D60).
- More is better. You shouldn’t exceed the recommended preload of the bearing, but bearings are made to different preload specs. Get the ones with more preload for this application. It is amazing how much preload can be beneficial in eliminating as much backlash as possible. Think 500 lbs and up if you really want to control backlash to minute ...
Preload pinion bearing. See PINION SEAL & YOKE under REMOVAL & INSTALLATION. Using an INCH-lb. torque wrench, check pinion bearing preload by measuring torque needed to rotate pinion gear. See PINION BEARING PRELOAD SPECIFICATIONS table. If preload is not within specification, see PINION BEARING PRELOAD under ADJUSTMENTS. PINION BEARING PRELOAD SPECIFICATIONS TABLE
- Rotational Torque Ranges Pinion bearing preload = 1.8-3.3 Nm (16-29 lb-in). Now, assuming you screwed up and didn't determine the preload before you removed the pinion nut, your next I wonder how many miles is the max for the 7.3 before it just wears out. I know maintenance is a major factor.
“S” with pinion flat as shown at right. Reassemble arm by adjusting the length of the forearm to be perpendicular (at a 90° angle) to the door, when connected to the main arm (at the preload position). Screw pinion cap onto pinion shaft by hand or with a Phillips screw driver - DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN. Adjust closer.
