What is the torque specs on the pinion bolt for the rearend when replacing the seal?
69hurst is well versed on this procedure.
There is NO torque spec for that nut. To do it properly it ALL needs to come apart.
The fact is nobody is taking that all apart to replace a seal.
Mark the nut accurately. Remove, replace seal, reinstall nut to THE mark and add a tiny bit more, like another 2 degrees. Any less will garantee not enough pinion bearing preload.
