Torque for Differential Drain Bolt W20

Just changed my differential fluid with Valvoline 75/90 full syn GL5. Easy job, but I can't find the torque specs for the drain bolt anywhere for my Dana S110 housing. Anyone know off the top of their head? Thanks.

Disregard my first post. I found the manual and the torques specs are as follows;

Drain bolt= 142-150 ft. lbs.
Fill plug= 40-60 lbs.

How often should you change the rear end fluid? How much fluid do you need when you do a change?

Cacti, per the manual, the Dana/Spicer S110 should be changed around the 5 year mark or 500k miles if using synthetic fluid which is what all the W20 and up came with. If you drive through water deeper than your axles, it should be changed immediately after.

My fluid came out crystal clear, and no shavings on the magnetic fill plug. I have 23k miles on my rig. Now that I have changed it, I don't believe I will ever change it again. My axle took 16 pints of Valvoline 75W90 GL5 synthetic.

I would just keep it topped off and your good to go!
