    Anyone know the exact torque spec on the 6 bolts that hold the pinion carrier to the housing on a 14BFF? Thanks! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    The exact specs are - tight with red toctite.

    Seriously that;s close enough. I'm sure there is an actual torque value, something like 65 ft lbs, but loctite is good stuff.

    The correct torque on these 6 bolts are important as these are the ones that set your pinion depth.

    I'm going to grab my book and get the number for you. Its at my garage so I'll post back with the number in about an hour.


    *Edit* The correct value for these bolts is 45 ft/lbs

    Additionally you can find some 14 bolt axle tech on my gallery page. http://www.rockmongers.com/gallery/album15

    Hope this helps.

    Not that it matters, but according to my book, 65 ft. lbs. is the spec.

    I've seen so many different specs for different stuff, that normally I'll take the numbers and get an average reading. In your case, it wouldn't hurt to torque the support to 55 ft. lbs. to split the difference between Stevens and my specs. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
