Hi

Does anyone have torque wrench specs for the local Gearmax differentials?
I would assume the torque specs for all M75, M80/82, etc would be the same?

Torque specs for the bearing cap bolts, crownwheel to differential case bolts, etc
What should the pre-load be on the pinion bearings?

Regards

Does no one know what the pre-load or backlash or pinion depth should be?

ok,

backlash for m75 to m82 = 0.12 to 0.18mm
pinion preload = ongeveer 20pond.(ek voel hom met die hand)
carrier bolts = 75 nm.
crownwheel bolts = 105nm

Hi vanthev8man

Please tell me from where you attained this information? I have searched high and low, tried the agents, phoned Gearmax themselves and it seems near impossible to get hold of a workshop manual for the local diff.
Do you have a copy that you would possibly share? I need to perform an overhaul which would be problematic without the necessary info...

Thanks!
