    Jaguar Diff Mounting Bolt Torque

    Hi All,

    Does anyone know the correct torque value for the M16 diff top mount bolts? Can't seem to find this anywhere.

    Thanks
    Neil

    I assume that’s the Haynes Manual for the Jag?

    Do we think this settings are relevant where the Jag part meets the AK?

    Different vehicle weights, torque, materials etc?

    I guess it’s better than nothing?

    Just on open question you understand, not a criticism.

    Yes, Haynes Jag XJS manual (not a Cobra 478, if one exists sorry my bad). Manuals have a number on the side to prevent confusion between marks and manufacture date ECT!
    Not sure where we go on the "switch" between donor and AK, valid point and not taken as criticism. I have been working on the premis that if it was good enough for the Jag it should be OK on an AK, thought process being the Jag was much heavier.
    Comments from all with a better skill set than mine more than welcome, but for now will still use the Haynes.

    I would go with the Haynes/Jag figures on this. There's been some very questionable information on here fairly recently regarding AK diff mountings and fasteners (and theory on mechanical advantage and gear ratios) which I still can't quite believe I was reading.
    DAX Cobra. May contain nuts. Always read the label.
