I need to do the bearing preload on a rear differential. I can't use the original shims as they got mysteriously damaged(that means melted) when I was torching off the stub shaft with a stripped torx bolt*. Does anybody have the FSM describing this for the R160 diff? The actual unit is from an 89 but I doubt that is overly significant.
Thanks, Brad

* the acetylene torch is not a good tool for this task. Next time I'll stick to the trusty sawzall.
