Good morning, I have pulled the final drive in a new to me 95 K75S to service the splines. When I attempted to pull the shock mounting nut from the stud that secures the shock to the final drive, the stud with the nut came unscrewed out of the final drive as one unit. When I was finally able to separate the nut from the stud, I discovered someone had used a lock nut ( nut lined with Nylon?). I do not think it belongs there, how would you apply torque to the nut if it is a lock nut.
Now my challenge is to reinstall the threaded bolt into the final drive and make sure it is secure. I know the torque for the nut is 51 NM, that is nut to stud. What about threaded stud into final drive ? I have not been able to find a value anywhere. For securing the stud to final drive, which loctite is best. Final question is: the final drive to swing arm bolts are to be torqued at 40NM, I cant think of a way to get a torque wrench in there, I used allen wrench, the "L" shaped kind and tightened them, how do I verify torque?
