I'm installing Part Number AP2142342. Three questions: 1. Do I use any lubricant on the seal or trunnion when reinstalling? I plan on cleaning all the parts with white vinegar and a tooth brush. 2. How do you know how far to put the trunnion back down on the shaft when reintalling?
3. Do I really need new bolts to put the trunnion back on? If so, should I use locktite?
ANSWER Hello Scott,
The trunnion requires no lubricant. You should replace the trunnion bolts because they get a lot of vibration and tend to loosen back up when they are not replaced. When you replace the bolts, they come with the blue locktite on the threads from the factory. When you go to install the trunnion, you will see that you have no choice as to how far to install it. The groove where the trunnion lockplate fits dictates it's installed location.
