View Full Version : Caterpillar Ten Final Drive

04-21-2009, 11:54 AM
I am trying to remove the Cover (part number T-136) from the final drive on a regular ten. I have the sprocket removed and the seals. Can you remove this cover without removing the rest of the final drive from the tranny? I thought you could, however I am having one hell of a time trying to pry that cover off. I have all of the bolts removed and I also have it moving along the studs, however it seems like it is bound up around the axle.

Catmatt, you need to remove the complete final drive, the sprocket shaft
has a large taper roller bearing facing inwards on the outer casing
and a smaller taper roller bearing facing in on the other end of the shaft,
you need to remove the complete final drive to gain access to the nut that
secure's the inner bearing, this also adjusts the pre-load on the beaings,
remove the cotter and nut and the inner bearing and then you can separate
the casing,

Don't forget to adjust pre-load on the sprocket shaft before replacing
final drive!

Caterpillar used the same design on the Twenty Two and D2.

Not a problem- I talked to my brother too and he thought you could get it off- it has just been so long since I had that part apart! I am tearing down the small fifteen. I am going to do the small fifteen and the regular ten at the same time as they are basically the same tractor. It just sucks I have to work with two paint colors- gray and yellow!
