Default Differential Torque Values

Good day all! Wondering if anyone has torque specs for the rear differential plate on a 1962 C1500 truck. Have a new gasket on its way, and want to do it right. Also curious to know if anyone has insight as to what rearend and gearing I might have. There is some info from NAPA as to what it may be. Any options for more efficient highway driving (I do very little - but want to drive her to car shows in nearby states)? This thing is geared for stump-pulling. Doing my best to keep the RPMs down on this big V6. Thanks in advance!

Differential Cover bolts should be 15-20 ft lbs

That NAPA gasket is for the Dana 44 and from your intro thread photos I saw you have a
Dana 60.

Standard gearing per manual is 4:56 and Optional is 4:10's.

Default Re: Differential Torque Values

Once you remove the cover the ratio is stamped on the ring gear.
