Rear axle torque settings

Post by Trevorthetractor »

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.
Thank you

Dear Trevorthetractor

According to my Fordson Dexta Workshop Manual, Section 7, Rear Axle, Reassemble the Differential, it says: "Tighten the eight casing bolts to a torque of 70 lbs ft and lock with wire".

Hope that is what you are after.
