View Full Version : Cat Ten Final Drive Question

10-28-2012, 06:37 AM
I have disassembled one of the final drives on my 1929 Cat Ten to check the bearings and found there is a missing part. It is a "Deflector, Part # T-342". There is suppose to be two for each side. The parts book I have doesn't give a good description. What is this part supposed to do and where can I get four of them ?

Also is there a torque value on any of the nuts when I start re-assembly ? The manuals I have are really not very good.

I believe those are to keep the majority of the gear oil on the pinion drive gear. Without them...I would think there would be a potential to allow gear oil into steering clutch bay. But if you simply use sealed bearings on the pinion shaft...you should not need those deflectors. That's what I did.
