Disassemble & Assemble Main Hydraulic Pump

Start By:
a. remove main hydraulic pump and pump drive coupling
Fluid Spillage Containment
Care must be taken to ensure that the fluids are contained during performance of the inspection, the
maintenance, the testing, the adjusting and the repair of the machine. Be prepared to collect the fluid with
suitable containers before opening any compartment or disassembling any component containing fluids.
Refer to the "Tools And Shop Products Guide", NENG2500 for the tools and the supplies suitable to collect
and contain any of the fluids in Caterpillar machines. Dispose of the fluids according to local regulations and
mandates.

NOTICE
During the disassembly of the main hydraulic pump, mark all of the
components so they can be reinstalled in their original locations.
Mixing any of the components will shorten the service life of the pump.

NOTE: Preload "K" between spacer (52) and centering pin (56), in combination with bevel spring washers
(53), maintain the correct limit of separation between cylinder (51) and port plate (6) (lift-off limitation). This
limits leakage during heavy, transient loading of the pump. When servicing the hydraulic group, there are two
critical dimensions. Dimension "I" is determined by one of several sizes of spacer (52). Dimension "J" is
determined by one thickness of shim.

NOTE: Rotating group holding tool (97) and bearing support (96) will be required when setting the bearing
preload of the rotating group. These tools must be fabricated.
To fabricate rotating group holding tool (97), use a 13 mm (.5 in) thick steel plate that is approximately 19
mm (.75 in) wider than the outside diameter of retaining plate (55). Using retaining plate (55) as a template,
transfer the outer bolt circle of the retaining plate to the steel plate, and drill the holes. Drill an additional hole
in the center of the steel plate, and install a bolt through the center hole. Secure the bolt with a nut. This bolt
will be used to rotate the rotating group during the bearing preload adjustment. Attach rotating group holding
tool (97) to the bottom of the shaft/gear with the appropriate size bolts.
To fabricate bearing support (96), cut a 90 degree vee approximately 150 mm (5.9 in)wide [dimension "H"]
into a block of wood. This wood block will be used to hold the rotating group while the drive shaft is rotated.
54. Install bearing (79), spacer (80) and bearing (81) with shims (78) determined in Step 53 on shaft (95).
Install bearing assembly (77). Apply 9S-3263 Thread Lock on the threads of spanner nut (76). Place the
rotating group holding tool (97) in a vise. Use Tool (H) to tighten spanner nut (76).

56. Using a piece of wire (98), guide spacer (52) (minimum thickness) into center pin cylinder (99) of
cylinder (51). Place spacer (88) and centering pin (56) in the cylinder. Position 8T-7775 Cylinder (87) over
the 8T-7774 Support (86), and lay the cylinder on its side. Carefully install the centering pin cylinder and the
cylinder into the pump cylinder, and return the unit to a vertical position. Align port plate (6) over cylinder
(51). Install 8T-7777 Plate (90). Position 8T-7776 Centering Pin (89), with the two lifting bolts, over 8T-7777
Plate (90).

57. Slide the above assembly under Tooling (F). The dial indicator must read between +0.05 to -0.10 mm
(+.002 to -.004 in). There are several different sizes of spacers (52) to choose from to obtain the correct liftoff limitation. There is a minimum spacer size. Each succeeding size of spacer is 0.10 mm (.004 in) thicker.
Depending on the dial indicator reading, the correct size spacer can be selected. For example, the dial
indicator has a reading of -0.50 mm (-.020 in). To obtain the 127 +0.05 -0.10 mm (5.0 +.002 -.004 in)
dimension, remove the spacer with the minimum thickness. Replace it with a spacer which is 0.40 mm (.016
in) thicker than the minimum. The tolerance should now be -0.10 mm (-.004 in).
