Neutron-rich, N=84 nuclei from the 132Sn region, populated in spontaneous fission of 248Cm, have been studied with EUROGAM 2. Excited states and their spins and parities in the 136Te nucleus were established up to 17$\hbar$. OXBASH code calculations support the experimental identification of maximum aligned configurations in 136Te. Empirical shell model calculations for the I$^{\pi}$ = 14+ level in 136Te indicate that the adopted mass of the 134Te nucleus should be lowered by 200(80) keV.
