Thanks...but I still cannot tell which torque value is for the diffirential (ring and pinion) attached to the aluminum carrier. There are 5 bolts that go thru the carrier to the diffirential (gasket in between)....I hope I am explaining this right....the fill plug is part of the aluminum carrier...I have the torque value for that:)
