Torques of ring gear & pinion


Varies with manufacturers. Rings gears are around 130 foot pounds, I use locktite on these bolts. Pinion is way different. Some are 250 foot pounds. Ones with crush sleeves are measure in inch pounds. With these you are measuring the drag on the pinion gear with out the differential installed yet. Usually between 15 and 30 inch pounds. I try to set them at the lower end, that way if it ever comes apart again, the sleeve can be reused.

Need the pinion nut torque for a 1990 ford ranger


I believe your rear end uses a crush sleeve. You have to shim your pinion gear to the proper depth first, then you have to crush sleeve (impact gun helps), then measure the torque ( inch pounds I believe) it takes to rotate the pinion gear. If you don't have the right equipment to set up your rear end, take it to a shop.

What if no pinion bearing preload was recorded before disassembly of rear diff pinion seal


The only way you can get an accurate preload reading is with an in/lb torque wrench on the pinion nut with the carrier removed.

Not knowing which differential is in the truck, I'm guessing a 9.25" rear loader type.

The correct way to do it is remove the axles and ring gear carrier. Set your preload with a NEW crush sleeve and in/lb torque wrench. Re-install the ring gear carrier and check contact pattern and backlash.

That said, you probably will be alright if you re-torque the pinion nut to spec plus a hair. Look it up in a manual. EXAMPLE: if it's 210 MINIMUM ft/lb add 5-10 lbs. Preload is 10-20 in/lbs. I have seen shops do this to save the customer money (or charge them for complete disassembly and not do the work). It should take up the slack from the crush sleeve.

This is NOT the correct way, but if you are in a bind it might work. I can't guarantee the bearing won't fail in the future.

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.

Rear differential leaking on ford f-350 super duty


if you have never done one its best to take to dealer because you have to remove drive shaft and then rear pinion nut and remove seal the tricky part is you have to buy new crush sleeve and thats what sets your pinon depth so that pinion rides in middle of ring gear its called setting your pinion depth if over tighten will hurt bearings and or ring gear and if under tighten will be verry noisey and cause ring and pinion failure best to let someone with special tools and knows what thier doing i use to do all chevy diff at my old dealer your use inch torque wrench to measure the drag on pinion nut and then use 1/2 inch impack to tighten the nut people freak because impack is rated at 600 ft pds but your using inch torque wrench to check drag not how tight nut is good luck

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.

How to set the crush sleave on a pinion. how to assemble a 1 ton rear end.


The crush sleeve is a one time use. You put in a new one, and torque the pinion to spec, and the sleeve crushes during this process.

WHAT ARE THE TORQUE SPECS FOR A CRUSH SLEEVE ON A 2000 GMC JIMMY


There is no spec for that. the sleeve must be compressed until you have the correct pinion bearing preload. The pinion must take 3-5 inch pounds of torque to spin it.
