Requires information as to whether it is a solid spacer between the flange bearing and the inner bearing or a collapsibility spacer in use
get a work shop manual and follow the method of torquing the pinion nut exactly or bearing failure will result
If it is just a replacement of a pinion seal and you want to do up the pinion nut then assume that it is a collapsed spacer and do it up till it touches the pinion and the about a 1/8 turn
there will be no in and out movement of the pinion when correct
still follow the book recommendations

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 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.

What are torque specs on 1965 ford 7 and 1/4 inch rear


I have a '68 Motor's manual (goes back to'58) the only rear end specs I can find are for the pinion nut (140 ft. lbs.)
pinion preload: 17-27 in. lbs. w/integral carrier or 22-32 in.lbs. w/ removable carrier. Tightening the carrier bearings isn't so much a torque setting but more or a tightening procedure. Theses specs are done during the rebuild so I wonder if you're asking about the bearing caps or bolts that hold the diff. to the axle housing? I could not find a spec. for bolt torque. Since the bolts that hold it in (if that is what you asking about) are not a bearing adjustment, you can go with a generic torque based on bolt size. Again, I'm not sure what component, or bolts it is you are asking for torque specs on.

Can some one tell me the torque spec. on rear pinion nut ?


It depends if you are replacing the pinion seal or fitting up a whole new pinion collapsible spacer. If it just the seal that you are replacing then the tension will be to do the nut up until it is firm. Any over tightening of the nut will further collapse the spacer and over preload the bearings . If you use a new spacer then the tension on the nut is determined by a turning torque on the pinion flange as measured by a spring balance and string. To get it right consult a workshop manual.

Spec Torque rear pinion nut hzj75


It should have a collapasable spacer and it is set by the preload on the pinion bearings. tighten the nut until the correct torque setting is reached by measuring the force necessary to turn the pinion flange.

Im replacing a rear bearing and need to know the tork pressure required


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 pinion bearing ,and the rear pinion bearing,and it has to be crushed to a certain amount,to acquire 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.

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.

Yes what is the torque spec for the nut on the rear diff yoke?


Hi, there is no real torque spec., as the pinion gets tightened against a crush collar, creating a preload for the pinion, as the preload is tightened to 20-25 lbin, on a rotational measurement, the nut torques itself. This measurement can only be measured with the ring gear, and center section out of the housing. This may sound confusing, but this is how a typical setup would work. If you are replacing the seal, because of a leak, you could remove the flange, replace the seal reinstall the flange, snug it up, untill it is seated, then give it a small amount of tightening. You should not over tighten this nut, as it could result in pinion bearing damage. If you use caution, you can do this without an issue, Good luck...Coop
