13. Install the distance collar (A), the 35 mm shim (B), and temporarily press on the used old ball bearing (C) using the 40 mm I.D. driver handle (D), the 30 mm bearing driver attachment (E), and a press (F).

NOTE: - Use any size of 35 mm shim, and note the size you used. Measurements taken in the following steps will determine the correct shim to use for final assembly.

- Make sure the ball bearing is installed in the correct direction.

14. Measure the clearance between the ball bearing (A)


14. Measure the clearance between the ball bearing (A) and the 35 mm shim (B) with a feeler gauge (C).

Standard: 0.04-0.10 mm (0.002 -0.004 in)

15. If the measured clearance in step 14 is not within the


15. If the measured clearance in step 14 is not within the standard, select another suitable 35 mm shim from the table, then go to next step to replace the 35 mm shim and the ball bearing with new ones. If the measured clearance in step 14 is within the standard, go to the next step to replace only the ball bearing with a new one.
