Lug nut torque spec on 1140

Looked all over the web and couldn't find specs on lug nut torque for my 1140 so I thought I would ask the experts! Need to remove wheels to install Peanut's stick stoppers and wanted to know proper torque setting for when I put them back on.

BTW - from the factory, some of the lug nuts were a serious BEAR to break loose. Needed a cheater and even then it was tough. Wonder why on earth they feel the need to drive them so darn hard with the impact wrench :whip:

Stick Stoppers

I didn't need to remove the wheel to install the stick stoppers, it probably would have been easier. Love em.

80-90 lbs of torque oughta keep the wheels on. I installed Peanut's stick stoppers without removing the wheels. But if I had it to do over ... I'd remove the wheels.

Call me old school, but I use "tight" as my torque spec on tires.

Davooda,

My comment about "tight" was half in jest and probably not the answer you're looking for.
I looked in my 900 owners manual and it says:
(1) Torque wheel bolts to 75 to 90 N-m (7.6 to 9.2 kgf-m) (55.3 to 66.4 ft-lbs)

I'd think yours is the same unless otherwise noted in your owners manual.

Thanks all! I couldn't find the spec in my owners manual and my dealer isn't very good about returning phone calls.

Tater driver,

That's the axle nut torque. Do you have the lug nut torque handy?

I may be wrong, but I think tater drivers post states it. Think they are calling it
a " Rear Wheel Mounting Screw". Beside it gives the torque.

Like I said, I could be wrong >>>> Was wrong once before !!!! :wink:

Ok, one more time:

Propeller shaft slotted nut - commonly called AXLE NUT - 60 ft lbs torque would be good

Rear wheel mounting screw - commonly called WHEEL BOLTS or WHEEL NUTS or LUG NUTS - 110 ft lbs torque

Now the latest recommendation for the axle nut is 140 ft lbs as mentioned here in another post.
