Re: torque setting

I take it you are referring to the big nut on the outer end of the drive shaft.

Torque is 250 Nm and as the nut is a once only fitting it should be renewed each time it has been tightened.

As a matter of interest what part of the shaft broke and how was its nut being tightened?
