Pinion torque specs?? Plz help
I have a 1993 Suburban K1500. It's got a 350 with a 10-bolt rear end. I have a leaky pinion seal and housing seal so I am planning on replacing the seals in the very near future.
Problem is I need to know what to torque the pinion to after I replace the seal?? Can anyone help?
10 bolt pinion torque spec
when assembling the pinion into place, include the crush sleeve between the two pinion bearings. This sleeve must be replaced every time the pinion nut is torqued. Many mechanics use an impact gun while others insist the nut should be torqued by hand. Either way, the nut should be tightened to produce 24-32-in-lb of torque to turn the pinion gear with a new bearing. This is without the ring gear in place.
