M Axle bearing retainer torque specs

Tue Mar 24, 2009 11:21 am

Well , we are really into the M now. I was removing the left rear axle, heavy but removed well, bearings seemed great, wanted to replace all gaskets and seals. however while cleaning I found 2 pieces of bearing cages that were broken off somewhere so I had to remove the axle from the hsg, I found that the bearings were replaced and the old parts have been rolling around in there. I have to re-torque the bearing retainer , would like to get the specs if anyone has a good manual, I bought one but really a poor IT manual.

Well, No help with the bearing retainer, sorry.... :( :( But I'll ask around and see if any of the local farmers might.

However, sure would like to know how that engine is coming along.....Hint Hint....Thought we'd be seeing some pics by now. :wink: :wink:
