    Hi, I'm new to this forum. I'm from the province of Québec in Canada. Tough this may sound heretic to your ears, I've put some fj40 diffs to my suzuki samurai. I bought the entire diff for 50$ because there was no brakes system and the ring gear/ pinion teeth were broken beyound usability because the previous owner had not settle backlash before use.

    So, I just bought a used 4.11 r&p set marking compound and dial/magnetic backlash reader and I want to do the job correctly but I dont have the torque specs for the 3rd member. Would someone tell me these specs.

    It's my firt time that I settle gears in a third member but I know I can do it. I will bring it to a diff shop after the fix to see if my job is done the right way.

    Sorry for my english I'm french.

    From the 1975 Chassis & Body manual, 98154, Page 13-12:

    Diff Case ring gear 75.9-86.8 ft-lb

    Diff carrier bearing cap 65.1-79.6 ft-lb

    Drive pinion flange nut 144-173 ft-lb

    and your english is fine.
