What is rear differential torque?
Torque specifications vary depending on the material and grade of fastener, and the material of the diff cover itself. Follow the instructions that came with your cover, they will usually fall between 20-30 ft/lbs. ARB for example, recommends right around 25 ft/lbs for most applications.
How much backlash does a GM 10-Bolt have?
between .006 and .
Each rear-differential type (as in 12-bolt, 10-bolt Dana 60 etc) has its own specs, these are usually included in the gear-set instructions. The 8.5” 10-bolt should have between . 006 and . 010” of backlash, we are not talking about much, and the only to check this is with a dial indicator.
Are ring gear bolts torque to yield?
They are not torque-to-yield so you can reuse them, but if they are damaged/lost, then Gforce sells them and that’s where you will need to get them.
How tight should pinion bearing be?
The tighter the nut the more preload. I know the Rivs should be about 10-15 inch pounds on used bearings and would think thats fairly standard but you may want to confirm the spec. New bearings require a bit higher preload setting. With the rear wheels off the ground tighten the nut up snug but don’t over do it.
Is it OK to reuse ring gear bolts?
The ring gear bolts have a left-hand thread so ARP is not going to have them… They are not torque-to-yield so you can reuse them, but if they are damaged/lost, then Gforce sells them and that’s where you will need to get them.
Are ring gear bolts reverse thread?
FYI – Ring gear bolts are LEFT HAND THREAD.
What is differential torque?
A torque vectoring differential performs basic differential tasks while also transmitting torque independently between wheels. This torque transferring ability improves handling and traction in almost any situation. Torque vectoring differentials were originally used in racing.
What is the correct pinion bearing preload?
Depending on the style of the assembly, either a crush collar or shims can be used to adjust pinion depth. Once the pinion depth has been set, pinion preload must be applied while rotating the pinion. For used bearings, set preload at 15 in. -lbs.; with new bearings, set preload with 25 in.
Can you reuse differential cover bolts?
Important: Do not reuse the rear axle housing cover bolts.
How do you tighten a rear end yoke?
With the rear wheels off the ground tighten the nut up snug but don’t over do it. Put the torque wrench on the nut and apply force it like you are tightening the nut and note the reading as the pinion is rotating. The normal process is to check-tighten-check-tighten and so on until the preload spec is reached.
