1.Apply Dual Pump System Fluid to the rubber of the ATF strainer (A), then install the ATF strainer, the magnet (B), the dowel pins (C), and the oil pump pin (D), in the differential carrier assembly.


2.Align the grooves (A) of the rear oil pump with the oil pump pin (B), then install the oil pump body assembly (C) on the differential carrier assembly.


3.Install the oil pump driveshaft (A) by aligning the projection (B) of the oil pump driveshaft with the groove of the front oil pump in the oil pump body assembly.


4.Install the thrust needle bearing (C).

5.Align the tab (A) of the pressure plate with the groove (B) of the oil pump drive shaft, then install the pressure plate (C) on the oil pump assembly.


6.Install the thrust needle bearing (A), the base cam (B), and the six steel balls (C).


7.Align the groove of the clutch assembly with the steel balls, then install the clutch assembly (A) and the 30 mm shim (B).


8.Remove the dirt and oil from the sealing surfaces. Apply liquid gasket (P/N 08C70-K0234M) to the sealing surface. Make sure you seal the entire circumference of the bolt holes to prevent oil leakage.

  • You must assemble the housings within 5 minutes after applying the liquid gasket. If you do not, the sealing surface must be cleaned, and the liquid gasket reapplied.
  • Allow it to cure at least 20 minutes after assembly before filling the differential with oil.
