Searched this forum for info and nothing in my manual. Putting my Joyner 650ss back together, looking for proper tourqe settings for the following:

Wheel Lug Nuts
Axel Castle Nut


Thanks for any help.

Matt ur right manual gives no specs on torque values. I kinda go by "the seat of my pants" on these, depending on the bolt sizes, tite as u dare w/out stripping or breaking it. got an air gun that I use alot and am familiar with, that I gauge this with.
If I had to quess, Id say probably 40ft lbs (?) on the axel (with a 18" breaker bar, give it most of what u can, w/out a cheater pipe, stop when u can get no more
& bout 1/2 that or a lit'l better on the wh studs (retiten after a short run if u can git no more, you should B good 2 go).
Sorry not alot of help -- as I say 4 me its kind of a seat of the pants thing :)

Well I still appreciate the reply. Last night just pulling a random # out, I decided to tighten the Axle Castle Nut to 80 ft lbs using the tourqe wrench and the lug nuts the same at 80 ft lbs. I think Ill bump that up a bit, take her for a run (once shes put together) and tighten again like you. I still would be curious to know if anyone else has any actual #s I could compare my settings to.

Are you not down to Florence Yet?

FYI:

Was finally able tog et through to the Joyner Service Dept. I aksed the service tech what they used and according to the technician:

Joyner:
Axle Castle Nut - 85 ft lbs
Lug nuts - 40 ft lbs

Me:
Axle Castle Nut - 85 ft lbs
Lug nuts - 80 ft lbs

So I guess my random guess wasnt too far off on the axel nut =D> but i tighten my lug nuts DOUBLE to what Joyner does. I don't see any downside to this, I didn't have to crank them down with a lot of force to reach that 80lb mark. But 85 lbs for the axle nut DID seem to be enough, tight as hell and the cotter pin holes even lined up perfectly for me.
