    still working on my ff14b. Question: are ANY of the bolts in the diff reverse thread? I know the bolts that hold the ring gear itself on usually are... but are there any others? Right now I am trying to get the 4 big grade 8 bolts that hold the carrier in off...

    TIA!

    Damn! Too late to reply to another thread! /forums/images/icons/tongue.gif

    Nope, there are no reverse threads on ANY GM axles. Everything is right-hand thread. /forums/images/icons/wink.gif

    The only time you will see or incounter a left had threaded bolt or nut is on a ford like the clutch fan and some times lugnuts on the left side of the truck. Other things you will see a left had treaded is a brake lathe or a big rig.

    who needs a breaker bar when you have a 1" impact gun. Can you say 1400 ft lbs of torque. /forums/images/icons/ooo.gif /forums/images/icons/grin.gif /forums/images/icons/cool.gif

    Hate to tell ya, but some late model GM axles use left hand threads on the ring gear /forums/images/icons/grin.gif Off hand I know the S10s and I can't recall the other one I've delt with but I know theres at least one other.
    The 14 bolt FF does not have any left hand threads in the diff. itself, I belive. /forums/images/icons/grin.gif Aren't some drivers side axle bolts left hand thread? Or am I thinking of the big rigs? /forums/images/icons/tongue.gif

    thanks guys, i ran it over to my axle guy and he zapped the ring gear bolts of with his PHAT impact. came right off... and they were right hand thread. I thought the ring gear ones might be reverse thread because the ring gear bolts on my 85 jimmys 10 bolt were in fact reverse thread. At any rate, thanks again!

    Yea those suckers are on there I think the torque specs are 120 on the ring gear and 140 on the caps. Just don't put 'em back together with an impact. /forums/images/icons/smile.gif

    That may be so, but I've never messed with any GM car axles. Only the truck axles are what I mess with. /forums/images/icons/wink.gif
