    <font color="green"> Pulld the shafts out? What do you need the spec for, the cover? /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif The lockbolt for the crosspin, maybe? </font>

    shaggy, yes i need the specs for the crosspin bolt and also for the bolts that hold the clamps down. please excuse me for my lack of knowledge on axles and use of proper terms /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif. nosmog73 loosened them up to get the shafts out so i could do my disc brake swap and now i need the specs to get it all back together.

    thanks for your help.

    later, todd

    <font color="green"> Sorry if I came off snippy, Todd, it wasn't my intention. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif The bearing caps are 60 lb-ft, the crosspin bolt... I can't find a spec for it, but if I had to make a stab I'd say about 10-15 ft-lbs. Make sure you use loctite on the crosspin bolt, but just use regular oil to lube the bearing cap bolt threads. </font>
