Final drive shims

Postby cjack » Mon Feb 21, 2022 12:02 am

Hi, we are rebuilding our final drives with new bearings and seals (thanks to TM Tractor). The single shim that was on the right hand final was only about 3/4 intact, I.e., not a complete circle.

Assuming I want to replace it, I am thinking of making shims using a brass shim stock (because it is easy for me to source)..

The brass comes in sheets .001", .0015", .002", .003", .005"' and .01".

Any thoughts on this plan?

Measure the damaged one and get/make one the same thickness. If all you change is bearings and all the other key parts are kept as they were (including on the same side of the tractor), you will likely end up needing the same shims as before.
