torque specs ring gear amc 20
anyone have the factory torque spec for the bolts of the ring gear to the carrier in a amc 20 rear end. In the Jeep CJ Rebuilder's Manual by Moses Ludel on page 283 it say's to torque the bolts evenly in a cross pattern in three steps bring torque to 105 lb-ft the jeep/amc factory spec. But I think this may be a misprint because looking at general torque specs for 7/16 bolts it is 40 to 65. The bolts on the dana 44 are speced at 55-65 and I would assume the bolts are about the same size. does anyone have the sepc for this from jeep.? and If I already torqued them to 105 should i get new bolts and replace them. I don't want these braking off because I have over torqued them. no good inside the diff.
