I have been trying to get the final drive put back together. but running into to question that I am not sure about. I think my sprokets /spline is worn out as I can slide the sprocket on 3/8" before it gets tight. I am sure there is a stand-off speck for it but I did not see any in my book if I press it on the sprocket will be rubbing on the FD housing at the top I see different called off for the press as well 25-30 is what I planning. the second thing is the new bellows seals I got from general gear have 6 tits on the back but the inside case only has 3 holes my plan is just to cut 3 off. I bought aftermarket seal plates 1A4088 and just thought them on the lapping machine they looked flat but they needed a little work to make them right. can someone tell me about gluing in the seals? I seen saw a reference 7F5015 cement is to be used but what am I gluing ? Is it just RTV?

if you cant find the gasket cement you could use permatex aviation number 3 form-a-gasket which is non hardening liquid or use no2 or number 1 one is a hard setting paste the other doesnt hard set cant remember which is which off the top of my head. or go really old school and use litharge and glycerine(you mix the two to make a paste. works excellent on welch freeze plugs in engines)

Uh... that sprocket and hub are scrap! The sprocket should be out the other way before the hub by 1/8" to 3/16"! You would need a 12 pack of beer cans and maybe a Dinty-Moore stew can ta boot to shim that! lol

well I guess it either going to be shims or she will just get welded on. unless I can find a way to shrink the bore of the splines. too bad the hub is no good they just put a new weld on ring on it. really just trying to get it together to see if the rest of the machine is worth putting any time or money in too as I never drove or pushed with it as the clutch was out when I got it, motor runs but never had it hot before or had a load on it. I need to find a parts cat or just give on this dam cat.

dose any one have the size of a good spline ? would like to see if the wear is in the male or freemale spline or if they are both worn the same a mount. when the sprocket is full pressed on where should it be at? the splines flush with each other after pressing or still sticking out a little bit.

Dimension "A" should be 0.06 to 0.19" when pressed to 35-40 ton.

thank you for clarifying the stand off needed. I have been reading about heat shrinking the female bore of the sprocket looks like it can be done. I will report back how i make out.
