Mechanics, remember to keep the spacer sleeve and shoulder shaft after the transmission of your Atlas 10K forklift is removed for repair or replacement. The spacer sleeve and shoulder shaft are shown as Items 2 and 3 in Fig 96 of TM 10-3920-673-24P (Aug 12). You might find them stuck to either the transmission or the forklift itself, so be sure to recover them during the removal process.

You’ll need these parts to reinstall the transmission back into its forklift. If a part gets lost or stays attached on the old transmission, you’ll have to track down the transmission and get the parts back or wait until the transmission’s manufacturer can find replacement parts.
