D37e-2 bevel gear shaft
« on: October 12, 2021, 09:03:06 PM »
Ok so I’ve got a komatsu d37e-2 dozer that I’ve been redoing the steering clutches and brake bands on,and finally have all the parts and the time to reassemble.The first thing I noticed when starting to put it together is that the plate in the bevel gear shaft has a lot of slop in it. ::)(in other words the bevel gear shaft bearings are bad).Has anyone changed these?I have a manual but it has old black and white picks and is kinda a pain.I still have clutches out so I might as well fix it now.I don’t know much about dozers Lol as this is my first one maybe I should just get someone to fix it.Thanks for any advice

I should say I have a fair amount of mechanical experience and ain’t scared to tear into something(not enough anyways)and think I could fix it but just don’t know much about setting the bearing preload and gear wear patterns

I know this is a vain hope but if the clutches where in it couldnt move near so much but Im sure it aint normal.
Some how I have to make a puller that can pull up to 12 ton to pull the plate off the end because theyre pressed on.Dont know why they have to make it that hard

 The one picture is of the clutch housing you can see the plate on the left that will need to come off,than the other picture is of course the bevel gear itself and the other clutch is just outside to the left.Dont really have any parts diagrams

Here is the other picture in OP's gallery. Doesn't help me much.
