W124 diff overhaul

Would appreciate if anyone have the spec. for setting up rear diff on W124 ASD from -91. This is the 185mm, 2,65:1.

What does the manual say about pinion preload?
How much rotational torque with new bearings?

Carrier preload with new bearings? I feel the need to specify my question: (carrier rotational torque/2,65)+pinion rotational torque=meassured torque
I.e. how much rotational torque on carrier separatly is in spec.

How much backlash?

Have read about some gauge to put ring/pinion in original position. Do not have such an instrument, but have still the original shims. Anyone have experience with this, advice appreciated.
