Replacing the front calipers on the Class C
The remanufactured calipers are supplied with brackets (Semi Loaded as they call them).

I need the Torque specification of the 2 bolts that hold the Brackets to the Spindles (NOT the slider bolts).

Also the torque value of the Banjo Nut (Brake hydraulic line to Caliper)

Vehicle:

2006 Ford E350 Super Duty Cutaway (should be the same as E450 Super Duty)


Thanks

I have the following service info from Ford for our 2003 E450 Chassis:

Front brake hose to caliper flow bolt - 22-30 lb-ft

Caliper bleeder screws - 13-18 lb-ft

Caliper bolts - 16-30 lb-ft

Brake Caliper anchor plate bolts - 255 ft-lbs

No guarantee that your 2006 E350 is the same.

Thanks for the replies. I pulled one side off last weekend, yes the bolts have Blue Loctite on them. Temporally I re-torqued it back to 140 Ft Lbs to get the MH back to the normal parking slot.

I have found over the many years of MY shade tree repairs with the limited lift & working space on a drive way, using proper Torque values prevent broken and/or stripped fasteners, rounded heads. Proper Torque also eliminates a cause of vibration. I use my impact tools to remove nuts/bolts, use hand tools to reinstall to final values.

From Ford for a 2006 E250-450, single rear wheel and dual rear wheel.

Brake caliper anchor plate (bracket) bolts 166 ft/lbs with blue loctite.

Caliper flow bolt (banjo bolt) 26 ft/lbs

Hub extender nuts 130 ft/lbs

These are also the specs for a 2003 E350.
