I have a problem I need some help with. I have a 1964 4-cyl Ford 4000. The rear axles move in and out about .20. The I & T manual shows a shim between the axle housing and bearing retainer. The text says to add or remove shims to adjust the end play to .002-.016. My question is do you add shims to take up the slack. My tractor had no shims as shown in the I & T manual.
I have the axles out of the tractor now. The bearing and everything looks to be full of grease. You cannot inspect without tearing the axle completely down which would cost about $120.00 dollars per axle.

I have pulled both of the axles and carried them to the dealer. The retaining rings had shifted and made the bearing loose. It will cost me about $300.00 to have seals and retaining rings installed. The bearing and races were okay.

It either needs a new bearing and cup or put a shim behind the cup to move it toward the bearing.
