Using a press, remove axle shaft with bearing retainer from backing plate. Remove puller from backing plate. Using a lathe and a dial indicator, check axle shaft runout at center of axle. See Fig. 3 . Replace axle if shaft runout exceeds .079" (2.01 mm). Check axle flange runout. Replace axle if flange runout exceeds .004" (0.10 mm).
