    I've looked through the FSM for the specs but I am obviously looking in the wrong place. Any ideas?

    Thanks, Gene

    I just snug them by feel, probably 1/4 turn past where they'd drip. I reuse the crush washers too sometimes. I'm going to hell.

    I have new crush and flat washers. Couldn't remember what they went to. Diff's, T-Case or Tranny. The previous owner or whoever did the work used the flat ones and they were distorted beyond recognition.

    Thanks, Gene

    Flat washers=tranny and oil pan.

    Crush washers: diffs and xfer case.

    I do it by feel as well.

    Best.

    Thanks Beno. Now I'll go refill it and put it back together.
