Sorry for the drifting conversation but this guy always plays this game.
In Scott's opening post he said:
readjusted the flange caps
In my post I asked if he was adjusting shims under the axle driving flange cap which by the way is exactly what the manual illustrations calls it "DRIVE FLANGE CAP
and was what Scott's post sounded like to me.
The act of shimming for those two locations is "Under the drive flange cap" for the axle shaft and "Under the pivot bearing cap" for the pivot bearings. None of the manuals use the term flange when referring to the shimming of the pivot bearings.
My post asked for clarification of the terminology and offered a quick manual view of the only "Flange cap" that gets shims on the outboard ends of the front axle.
Scott then replied and clarified it was the King Pin /Pivot bearing Cap shims he had adjusted. Which by the way is exactly what the ORD 9 SNL G-740 calls those shims "Shim, king pin bearing" on page 222 and also the M38 TM 9-1804B Power Train, body & frame manual calls them just Steering Knuckles. This TM also overlooked the axle shaft shimming which was published in a 1951 issue of the PS magazine.
I clearly understand and am thoroughly familiar with both shimming procedures.
Again I apologize for the drift from your post's topic but I get very tired of folks that try so hard to find things wrong with a post they often end up inventing the error themselves.
