Rear axle torque settings

Does anyone have the torque setting for the deferential bolts on a 1959 Dexta? I can’t see it listed in the online manual,
Your help would be appreciated.

Re: Dexta gearbox

No I am not sure, just taken off the off side trumpet today and found a broken spacer? Just below the diff housing but can’t see any teeth off the crown wheel so tomorrow will dismantle the diff assembly, although I don’t see a spacer in the diagram.

Re: Dexta Hydraulics

I discovered later that the shuttle valve was sticking in the piston housing, it is behind the two covers fixed with two or three bolts, once th...

Re: Help required getting Hydraulics’ working

Hi
I do not see a select knob, I changed all the rubbers and reset the linkages best I could. I will try to see if oil is being pumped, all the old oil was drained chest cleaned out and new oil is it possible that the system is “air locked”?
