Torque Spec for Nuts that Attach 10 inch Trailer Brake Assemblies


What is the recommended torque specification when installing the nuts on the mounting bolts to the axle for 10 inch brake assemblies on a 3500 pound axle? In general 7/16-20 plated nut would be about 45 ft. pounds, is that correct? Thanks,

I called my contact at Dexter about the 10 inch Nev-R-Adjust brakes like part # 23-468.

They told me when you are installing the brake assemblies to the brake mounting flange, the torque should be between 45 and 50 ft lbs.
