M/T Differential Backlash Inspection

1.Install the driveshaft and intermediate shaft into the differential assembly.

2.Carefully clamp the driveshaft (A) in a vise (B).

 

3.Place the intermediate shaft (C) on a V-block (D), then fix the intermediate shaft using a vise or equivalent (E).

4.Measure the backlash of the final driven gear (F) with a dial indicator (G). If the backlash is not within the standard, replace the differential carrier.
