Re:Pinion Nut Size?

I believe in utilizing correct torque values whenever possible, but I too lack a torque wrench w/that capacity. 3-4 foot pipe on the 3/4 drive breaker bar &amp; give a tug. <br><br>Or you could use above info. <br><br>Over 250 and you should be fine. A drop or two of blue loctite would not hurt either.

Snap sells a 4ft long 1 inch drive 0-600ft lbs torque wrench and let me tell you pulling 600ft lbs even out in the open is pretty tough, we mostly did it with two people. For just replacing pinon seals I've always used the 2 center punch/ dot method, just line them up again when tightening.
