Anybody know the torque setting for the strap bolts???
You can torque them until they break off and it won't hurt the u joint, but I think it's 35-40 ft lbs.
Not sure how you'd get a torque wrench in there though.
Well the yoke should have a little "shoulder" so the u joint cap doesn't fly out. The strap really just prevents the ujoint from going over the little "shoulder" thing. I found this out because somehow when my ujoint blew up the little shoulder peice got torn out. I couldn't figure out why the caps kept flying out no matter how tight I torqued them.....When I finally did really this I put a washer between the ujoint and the strap and put a dab of JB weld on the end and haven't had trouble since. /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif
I believe it is 15-20#'s is all
Using a yoke without a retaining tab is not a good idea IMO. I'd switch it out.
It's 15 ft/lbs, I just did this and had to look it up myself. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
