they want. Unless you are talking some ridiculous figure
over and above the factory spec.
I didn't think so either since the female splined portion is one solid
I'm talking in the range of somewhere around 225ft/lbs. I replaced my
squealing bearing with a new one and tightened it as much as I could with a
breaker bar. The next day the new one started squealing so I borrowed a
torque wrench to torque it properly. I suppose it could be defective...?
