    I just put in my Detroit locker and I need the torque specs for the ring gear and main caps. I can't find the papers I had it on.

    Also does any one know how to make my '90 Sub e-brake work with my new FF axle? It's out of a '78 3/4 ton.

    Almost locked and cocked!

    <font color="green"> Ring gear is 120 lb-ft, caps are 135. </font color>

    Hey Rich,

    My factory manual says Ring 110 and caps 100. but that was in 75, maybe they changed it?

    oh and the e-brake, talk to esteban, he figured out somethng to make it work on his.

    <font color="green"> I got my specs from Randy's ring and pinion, and they were the same on several other instruction sheets. I believe the spec did go higher in the 80s though. </font color>

    Everything held together this weekend! I put about 200 of freeway/paved mountain road and about 100 miles of trail, rocks and, fire road. I can honestly say I'll never be happy unless I have a Detroit locker in the rear from now on. That thing rules!
