Pinion nut torque for 1963 Chevy C-10 truck , 12 bolt rear end

The best way is to use a new crushable sleeve between the pinion bearings,use red lock tight on the pinion nut and tighten the pinion nut until all side play is removed from the pinion bearings then tighten the pinion nut just a hair more.The rotation resistance should feel about 15inch/lbs,just a slight drag with NO side play.

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 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.

What size socket is needed to remove rear pinion nut on 1997 jeep grand Cherokee limited with a5.2 v8

the rear axle front pinion DANA 44 or AMC?
the answer is not simple , why not read the FSM and unstand it all.
  1. On 1990-98 models, set bearing preload as follows:
    1. The required pinion gear bearing preload torque is 1/2 ft. lbs. over the noted release torque as measured above.
    2. Rotate the pinion gear three or four times with a torque wrench attached to the yoke nut. Measure the amount of torque necessary to rotate the pinion.
    3. Using a holding tool, tighten the yoke nut in small increments and remeasure until the specified torque is obtained.

see diff chapters. its non trivial.

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.
