Happy Near Year to all! And now I need some advice. I was re-installing my rear axles on a '42 Fargo after replacing the inner and outer seals. the shop manual states that there should be .003-.008 end play for the axles. I have none. I don't want to disturb the outer bearing cup so I'm not sure what to do. Would pulling the axles a little solve my problem? Also, is the correct sequence of parts : shim, backing plate, gasket, and then outer seal? The manual isn't all that clear on this point. Thanks in advance.
