Intermediate shaft and planetaries:
Since I have a 48RE, I have 6 pinion planets. If I had a 47RE I would have had 4 or 5 pinion planets. Note that the thrust washers fit in little holes in the planets, and since I have a 47RE rebuild kit, none of the thrust washers would fit. I mic'd my thrust washers and found little to no wear, so I reused mine.
Remove the snap ring from the input side of the intermediate shaft.
Remove the front planetary set.
Remove the thrust washer between the front planetary and the shell.
Flip the assembly over, onto the shell. Lift the intermediate shaft out of the shell/sun gear.
Lift the ring gear from the rear planetary.
Remove the thrust washer from the rear planetary.
Remove the rear planetary from the sun gear/shell
Remove the thrust washer from the shell. Note that there is a spacer under the thrust washer, retained by a circlip. I did not remove these components, as my sun gear was in good condition.
Disassemble front planetary. Notice the plastic spacer.
CLEAN ALL COMPONENTS.
Lubricate the thrust washer and place it on the front end of the rear planetary set.
Place the rear planetary over the sun gear as shown.
Lubricate and install the other thrust washer on the rear planetary.
Install the rear planetary ring gear.
Lubricate the bushings inside of the sungear and insert the intermediate shaft.
Lubricate and install the thrust washer between the shell and front planetary.
Lubricate and install the thrust washer on the back side of the front planetary.
Lubricate and install the plastic spacer ring over the front planetary snout.
Install the ring gear over the front planetary.
Install the front planetary over the intermediate shaft.
Install the snap ring to retain the front planetary.
Intermediate shaft assembly is complete.
