FRONT AND REAR AXLE DRIVE PINION OIL SEAL AND PINION FLANGE
Care should be taken to ensure that original rotating torque is not
exceeded by more than 5 lb.-in.
(0.6 N.m). If working on M1009,
exceeding torque specifications may compress spacer on drive pinion (3)
shaft too far and require replacement of spacer.
Measure torque required to turn drive pinion (3) and compare with torque recorded during
removal, Install flange holder (6) and tighten flange nut (4) in small increments until rotating
torque exceeds original by 15 lb.-in. (0. 1-0.6 N.m). Remove flange holder.
l Check differential lubricating oil level and fill as required, (See LO 9-2320-289-12)
Connect propeller shaft to axle. (See TM 9-2320-289-20)
