    Hi

    Can anyone tell me the correct torque setting for the wheel nuts on an 86"
    series 1.

    Thanks

    Tony Boyle.

    I always just tighten them by hand spanner/brace as much as I can. Never
    had one come loose that way, whereas I have had them come loose after
    being put on with an air tool.

    If you're strong enough to shear them, please contact me off group :)

    Do them up until they strip and then back them off 1/4 of a turn. ;-)

    Seriously though, 100 lb-ft is plenty.

    75 to 85 lb/ft - avoid the temptation to over-tighten them as they
    can pull through the rim - only seen it once, but the owners trousers
    were scrap....
