Re: Proper pinion bearing preload procedure for 10.5" sterling.
General rule for setting up pinion bearing preloads in LD use are about 15in.lbs for used bearings, and 25 in. lbs for new bearings. If I were setting up the pinion, with used bearings and a new crush collar & seal, I would aim for around 20 in. lbs. rotating torque, if you installed new bearings I would go up towards 25in. lbs.
