Rear axle nut torque spec
« on: September 11, 2011, 01:14:33 PM »
I apologize If this is on here somewhere, but what is the torque spec for the rear axle shaft nut on an 81 eagle wagon? I have ordered a manual but it's not here yet.
Thanks

Isn't there a misprint on that in one of the books? I'm expecting ALL years to be the same, IN CASE there's a difference, I'm curious about an '83.

AMC's have been 250 foot pounds on the axle flange since the early days.    Some manuals say "250"; while some say "250 min.".     Don't know why the difference.   I wouldn't go over 250, because you then may end up with the dreaded Eagle busted axle issue.

My mistake, every time I see houston & AMC, Eddie naturally comes to mind! Convince him to change his planet AMX name!

Or I could change my name, since I'm no longer in Houston -- "Hill Country AMC" comes to mind.   But then everyone knows me here by my Houston handle.   Decisions, decisions!
