95 Big Boss 6x6 rear axle
 
HI there,

I have a quick question. I've changed my final drive rear axle bearing the other day on my 1995 Big Boss 6x6 (Same set-up as a Magnum 425 for example) with brand new bearings. the torque spec for the nut and lock nut are indicated at 150ft-pd in the manual. But after tightening the first nut not completely to torque spec. I can barely rotate the carrier around the axle. Is this normal ? I've removed the seals that came with the bearing kit and lubricated the balls as well as the inside of the carrier but still stiff to rotate. Is this going to get easier once driving on the ATV ?

I don't know where you got your information, but according to my manual;

Concentric Swingarm Rear Axle Installation
1. Lubricate and install axle from left to right.
2. Lubricate and install a new 0-ring on right side of
axle. Slide new 0-ring against RH axle bearing
seal. Apply grease to sealing area on inside of
sprocket hub and slide sprocket hub assembly
onto the axle. Seat the hub against 0-ring and
bearing.
3. Apply Loctite TM 262 to threads of and install nut.
lighten nut with wrench to approximately 8-10 ft.
lbs. (11-14 Nm). Axle must rotate smoothly without
binding. If axle binds the nut is too tight. If axle
movement (up and down or side to side) is detected,
axle is too loose.

I admit, I tighten the nut tighter than 10 ft lbs and it resists turning until it has run in for some miles

Nice to have you here with us Marty. Is this a work machine you have?? That' all ours does.

Your Manual is for a 1996 and up.
Mine is a 1995.

Might be because they recommend using loctite 262 (RED - High strength) instead of the 242 (BLUE - Medium strengh). That might be why they are recommending a lower torque

ArlyA - Pretty much the same.
Working around the cabin hauling wood and other stuff.

Service manuals can be wrong - maybe they wanted it torqued to 120 ft lbs for 'seating' and failed to direct the mechanic to back off and re-torque to 10 ft lbs? At any rate the mechanic is instructed to back off the torque until it turns freely. Any other Polaris techs on here care to give your two cents?

I agree - the 85 to 95 manual # 9912004 does recommend 120 ft lbs, but all other manuals covering different and similar models using the same axle carrier recommends 10 ft lbs. The same axle and axle carrier was used in the following models:
