I thought it would be a good idea to start a thread on the above.

If we try to keep it not chit chat ect it may help when putting your pride and joy back together? If the format seems wrong or could be improved let me know.

Part: LC 80 wheel bearings
Manual: Max Ellery 'Toyota Land Cruiser 1990 - 2002 Diesel Engines'. Book code EP.T018
Page: 254
Paragraph: 'rigid front suspension'
Error: The front wheel bearing FINAL torque is set 48 ft-Ib and this is incorrect.
Evidence: FSM page SA 20 the final torque is 48 in-Ib.

Notes: If you follow Max's book and use the Newton meters scale then this appear's
to be correct. The text also appears to be correct i.e. pre load and then use a
spring gauge to get the correct setting which will be little more than hand tight.

Try posting a 'wanted' advert for your manual, I am assuming the owner's manual?

Or perhaps download from this site?
