• 73 vw axle nut tourqe spec?

    220 lb-ft. If you’ve got a 250 lb-ft torque wrench, run the nut up to 220 and THEN try to find the hole to stick the cotter pin in. If you can’t get the pin in, tighten it a little more. And do NOT, whatever you do, try driving without the pin. The brake drum will come off.
