This may be due to a broken intermediate band. SERVICE PROCEDURE 1. Loosen the intermediate band locknut on the band adjustment screw. 2. Using the special service tool (307-S022), tighten the suspect band adjustment screw to 10 lb-ft (14 N•m). a. If the band adjustment torque cannot be achieved, both bands will need to be replaced. Proceed to PROCEDURE “B”. b. If the proper torque is achieved, the band is OK and does not need to be replaced. Proceed to Step 3 of PROCEDURE “A”. 3. Lubricate the locknut seal with petroleum jelly prior to installation. a. Remove the band locknut and discard. b. Install a NEW band locknut. c. Using the special service tool (307-S022), tighten the band adjustment screw to 10 lb-ft (14 N•m). d. Back off the screw exactly two (2) turns and hold that position. e. Tighten the intermediate band locknut. f. Hold the band adjustment screw stationary. g. Tighten the band locknut to 40 lb-ft (54 N•m). h.
