I re-built my 10 bolt rear end from a '64 and went to put the backing plates on but can't find the torque specs for these listed anywhere. My Chevy service manual says to torque them to specs, but then doesn't list the specs. I remember they were very hard to loosen, and the standard spec I find for a 3/8 - 24, Grade 8 bolt is 47 ft/lb. If anybody knows the factory specs it sure would be appreciated.
