What is torque spec for 1964 Riviera rear axle pinion nut?

The same book that I hope you used in setting the ring and pinion backlash will give you the ( Rolling Torque). Once the pinion nut is set, a new crush sleeve will be required to correct. This axel will not go around the block if back lash is not correct.

What is the torque specification for the pinion nut and 1960 Chevy Impala

We are talking rear end hear correct . However torque isn't spicific to vehicles what it is spicific to is the grade of the metal V S the treard pitch V S the size of the shaft and nut .Most poinion nuts are what is called flange nuts witch means there is a base on the nut and you need 2 differant wrenches to install or remove one to hold one side and the other to break it free on tighten .The problem here is its hard to know with a torque wrench on the nut and an open end wrench on the pinion side . So take to big open ended wrenches and crank them together as tight as you can . this gives you x2 torque but the spec about 65 ftlbs to 90 lbs for most although you will not be able to measure acuralty

What is the torque spec for a 1978 Ford pinto differential pinion nut?

170 ft.lbs is the minimum; be aware that this differential uses a crush sleeve to set the backlash and the pinion torque is what crushes the crush sleeve. If you don't set the backlash correctly you can grind up your differential gears.

I need the torque specs on a rear axle pinion nut for a 2003 Dodge Ram 2500 4/4 Cummins, Automatic.

The pinion nut does not have a torque spec. as in how tight the nut is. The amount of torque is measured in bearing preload. You will need a "torque to rotate" torque wrench. If you are using new bearings the torque spec. is 15-25 in. lbs. If you are using your old bearings the torque spec. is 10-20 in. lbs to rotate. To measure this you will need to tighten the nut in small increments then use the torque to rotate wrench to turn the pinion without the carrier/ ring gear installed. Repeat until desired torque is reached.

Replaced rear axle pinion bearing and seal, need to know pinion nut torque spec. for aam rear axle 2005 dodge 3500 4x4 Thanks.

There is no torque specs,this nut has to be tightened back like it was ,the best thing to do,was,to late now,is to use a torque wrench to remove the nut,and remember the torque,and when replacing it,torque it back to that spec,the reason being,there is a crush sleeve between the front pion bearing ,and the rear pinion bearing,and it has to be crushed to a certain amount,to aquire deepness into the ring gear,anyway just give it about 25 lbs torque,any more the crush sleeve will crush even more and the deepness of the pinion will be too much.

Need torque specs for the pinion nuton rearend!!!!!!

If your car is a rear wheel drive, and you mean the nut that's just after your drive shaft, then...If you are replacing the seal, you need to mark the nut and the shaft so that when you re-assemble it you tighten the nut just a 1/4 " past the original mark. The reason is there is a crush collar that compresses inside on your pinion shaft to give it a little resistance. This is measured using a beam type inch pound torque wrench. I hope this might answer some questions. Setting up a pinion once removed requires a new crush collar, and the inch pounds of resistance are a little different between new bearings, or if you reuse the old ones.
