This third-member housing also includes a device (unique to the Hi9) for ring-gear support. The adjustable bolts shown here are used to support an anti-deflection thrust block that controls ring-gear side load to keep the ring-and-pinion in proper mesh under severe torque loads. Also in this assembly a full spool was used as the locker mechanism.
