PINION TOTAL ROTATION TORQUE CHECK

CAUTION Secure the steering gear & linkage to the special mounting point. Fixing the steering gear & linkage to another point could deform or damage the gear housing.

Standard value:
Total rotation torque: 0.6 - 1.6 N*m (5.3 - 14.2 in-lb)
Torque fluctuation: 0.4 N*m (3.5 in-lb) or less

NOTE:

2. If the measurement value is outside the standard value, replace the gear housing.
