Drive Shaft Nut Torque K4

I replaced the gasket of the drive shaft on the driving wheel on my Sparten K4 chassis. Is anyone able to tell me the exact torque to tighten the nuts of the drive shaft cover? Thank you in advance.

Sorry to have to ask ; but I'm having trouble with your description of the bolt you need the torque spec for .

Have you removed a drive axle at the rear wheel to replace an axle flange gasket and need the bolt torque for the retaining bolts at the axle flange?

The bolts in the green box in this diagram of a full floating axle set up.

Your axle flange probably has eight bolts .

Sorry, I am not a mechanic. But you got exactly the right point. Itís the green section. Someone made a older post. He tightened the screws first on 100ft/torque and still leak. Than Dana told him 160ft torque would be the right thing. After he did this, no leakage. In my opinion 160ft torque seems a bit too much. Although his rig was a 2008, mine is a 2020. So, what is your recommendation?

What size socket is used on the axle flange nuts( bolts ) on your coach ?
Sorry to ask but I'd have to remove my Dicor wheel covers to check on my own coach .

My experience with axle flange bolts is limited to one ton trucks and 160/185 would be high in that application .

If there are no cone wedges behind the nut 185 ft lb would be fine.

I have the cones and and 185 lbs is what spartan told me to do, also a new gasket didn't last a hundred miles so used gasket sealant, has been good for 5,000 miles so far.

In order to continue to sell to the worldwide market , North American manufacturers have had to adopt the metric system , but somehow the torque specs are still coming in ft/lbs .

From a quick glance those studs will handle that torque 185 ft/lbs

I'll find a metric sizing chart to confirm ; I've had no luck finding a Menitor torque spec sheet.
