      rear brake drum nut torque

      Is there a recommended torque for the nut on the rear brake drum or is it just a matter of tighten it good and tight until you can get the cotter pin in? This is for my 67 1800.
      Thanks
      Jim S.

      Jim;

      No torque is specified, but the generally accepted process is to tighten to 80ft/lbs, then continue to next cotter pin alignment opportunity. I hope you applied the slightest film of anti-seize to the tapered axle shaft.

      Thanks Ron, I haven't finished putting it back on yet.
      I know that using anti-seize is sometimes argued about. I think you are right, putting a little on there is a good idea. Unless you know you will not be the next one take it apart. Or if you know who will be the next to do that and you don't like them.
