c) Tighten bevel pinion nut (special tool) so that
NOTE
Before taking measurement, check for
rotation by hand more than 15 revolutions.
Tightening torque
Rotational torque of bevel pinion (Bearing
preload): 0.50 – 1.30 N·m (0.05 – 0.13 kgf-m,
0.35 – 0.95 lb-ft)
d) Measure height "b" in figure by using vernier
caliper.
Calculate "c" by using measured value.
Distance "c" = Height "b" –

f)
Select a shim closest to the calculated value
(necessary shim thickness) from among the
available shims or combine shims to become
closest to calculated value.
For example:
Measure distance "b" is 69.95 mm (2.754 in.).
"c" = 69.95 mm (2.754 in.) – 40.0 mm (1.757 in.)
= 29.95 mm (1.179 in.)
"f" = 29.95 mm (1.179 in.) + 74.0 mm (2.913 in.)
– 101.95 mm (4.014 in.) = 2.0 mm (0.079 in.)
Calculated thickness of new shim = 2.0 mm
(0.079 in.)
