Re: anyone know how to set the bearing preload in rear drive axle?
I did'nt realize we had a crush/spring sleeve in this rear end.. that makes it easy. As I understand the use of a crush sleeve is to maintain the proper preload on the bearings throughout a wide heat range during operation as well as a certain amount of forgivness in the event of improper torquing due to its springy nature, although slight it may be... and the torque on the yoke nut holds it all together.... where would I find the torque spec's for the yoke nut and the journal cap bolts for the ring gear? thanks
