Ring gear torque

I am replacing the pinion and ring gears in my Dana 35 rear diff. Can anyone tell me the torque spec for the bolts holding the ring gear?

Wondering if you have the measuring tools and instructions to check the pinion depth, bearing pre-load, and set the backlash ? You cannot just bolt in new differential stuff and expect it to fit.

Yes I do, I do this on larger machinery all the time. Can any one tell me if the inside pinion bearing needs to be installed with a bearing heater or does it just slide on.

Usually installed with a piece of tubing (factory special tool) and a hammer.

I hammer inner pinion bearings on but I am sure that would be easier if the bearing were heated some.

I'm having a hard time getting a chance to work on my Jeep but thought these pictures of the old and new pinion might be interesting. The old ring gear still looks good but I'm changing it any way since I have the new one.
