I have a 99 chevy silverado with the 8.6 3.73 rear end. Is the torque specs for the rear yoke 270 ft lbs like the gmc Sierra

If you have an 8.6" ring you should have a 10 bolt axel. With this axel you don't torque the pinion nut. This style axel has a crush collar. Down below I forwarded the preload torque specs. If you do have a 12 bolt axel, the ring gear does get torqued but the ring gear will not be 8.6" Please write back if you need anything thing else. Pinion Preload New: 14 to 19 in-lbs Pinion Preload Reused: 6 to 8 in-lbs

What is torque spec for 1964 Riviera rear axle pinion nut?

The same book that I hope you used in setting the ring and pinion backlash will give you the ( Rolling Torque). Once the pinion nut is set, a new crush sleeve will be required to correct. This axel will not go around the block if back lash is not correct.

Torques of ring gear & pinion

Varies with manufacturers. Rings gears are around 130 foot pounds, I use locktite on these bolts. Pinion is way different. Some are 250 foot pounds. Ones with crush sleeves are measure in inch pounds. With these you are measuring the drag on the pinion gear with out the differential installed yet. Usually between 15 and 30 inch pounds. I try to set them at the lower end, that way if it ever comes apart again, the sleeve can be reused.

    I need the torque specs on a rear axle pinion nut for a 2003 Dodge Ram 2500 4/4 Cummins, Automatic.

    The pinion nut does not have a torque spec. as in how tight the nut is. The amount of torque is measured in bearing preload. You will need a "torque to rotate" torque wrench. If you are using new bearings the torque spec. is 15-25 in. lbs. If you are using your old bearings the torque spec. is 10-20 in. lbs to rotate. To measure this you will need to tighten the nut in small increments then use the torque to rotate wrench to turn the pinion without the carrier/ ring gear installed. Repeat until desired torque is reached.

    Replaced rear axle pinion bearing and seal, need to know pinion nut torque spec. for aam rear axle 2005 dodge 3500 4x4 Thanks.

    There is no torque specs,this nut has to be tightened back like it was ,the best thing to do,was,to late now,is to use a torque wrench to remove the nut,and remember the torque,and when replacing it,torque it back to that spec,the reason being,there is a crush sleeve between the front pion bearing ,and the rear pinion bearing,and it has to be crushed to a certain amount,to aquire deepness into the ring gear,anyway just give it about 25 lbs torque,any more the crush sleeve will crush even more and the deepness of the pinion will be too much.
