I looked at at the spec before i saw i didn't have a socket so i DID see what it was. So i had to use a monkey wrench. But i'm pretty sure it was in the 80's....88 (119 Nm) seems to ring a bell. by the way, i like to use Ft Lbs vs Nm just because i'm used to that so i wrote all the Ft Lb equivilents next to the Mn specs in the manual using a program called "convert".

Now for MY question.....anyone know what size that nut is? I assume it must be in the manual but thought i'd ask so i might pick one up today at lunch.
