ford 9in 3.82gear settings

does anybody know the settings for a ford 9inch posi rear with 3.82 gears (i know it's an unusual gear ratio. i am doing it with my friend's dad who knows how to do them but he wanted to know the settings. here are the settings i think he wants to know

back lash
pinion depth
torque on the ring bolts
torque on the bolts holding the pumpkin in the rear
torque on the U-joint infront of the rear
something to do with a micrometer
torque on the pinion nut

if it helps this rear will be used for mostly street/strip (i'd like to drive to the strip and use it then drive home from the strip)

ps if there are any equations that would help me determine how much my spedometer will be off it'd B nice to know them too (right now i have a c-6 tranny with a 3:1 in the rear)
