Rear drive shaft u-joint strap torque specs???
Can anybody tell me what the torque specifications are for the strap bolts on the rear drive shaft u-joints (to the Dana 300 yoke and the AMC20 yoke)?? Just to make sure, I mean straps not u-bolts. Haynes seems to list 25-45 ft/lbs, so I set the torque wrench to 35, in between... This seems way to high already, as a matter a fact, it is too high as one of the bolts just snapped off in the yoke. Got the broken bolt out, but don't want to make this mistake again. Oh and ehhh ,do you use loctite on these bolts or not??
