Anyone know what the torque spec is for the 6- 9/16 nuts that hold the spindle and splash guard to the steering knuckle is? Search came up empty...

Dana 44 on a '73 K-10. I saw an exploded view that had them rated at 65 ft lbs. I have them at 50, but will probably go that last 15.

That's the third value that I've heard. I actually saw an exploded view that had them at 65, but never got the source info to verify it.
Pissing me off! I have them at 50 for the time being...
-Thanks!

It does in the service procedure. You need to actually read it, imagine that amazing idea.   ::)
