  • lug nuts
  • Can someone tell me what the torque specs are for the rear wheels on the Jubilee? I have some books but don't find it. Thanks

  • I believe Rusty 2Ns comment. I only qualify it with this: as a 14 year old in 1957, we did not have a torque wrench or even a socket big enough for the lug nuts. We had the plow wrench. I put the nuts on as tight as I could with that wrench when ever we changed the setup to cultivate and back to utility. Never had one come loose and our '51 8n had (and still does) a Sherman Combo transmission. You gotta KNOW this 14 year old used it, a lot!, and still do at 75!

  • Yep,

    Get them tight as you can with an 18" breaker bar and 18" torque amplifier. Two jumps is sufficient. They will be tight enough. A couple of trips through the cow yard to get some manure on them. No cow yard, mud holes work, but will take longer. It will take the blue wrench to loosen them in a couple of years.
