Prop shaft U bolts

Recommended Posts

How tight should the u bolt on the prop be, I have always guessed.  I've just changed the rubber donut and bearing again so want to get this as accurate as possible this time!

Thanks

Im sure its in the workshop manual, but im sure Herman will be along with the info before i get time to look it up 🙂 Don't forget the little locking tabs on those nuts, makes one hell of a noise if it comes lose and drops off 🙂

This is a scan from the A series workshop manual.

It is 1,2 Mkg, or 12 Nm. Don't think you can fit a socket on those bolts but it is an indication. We had in our military workshop at the barracks torque wrenches with a set of spanners that fitted in it.

Sorry Danny 😁, so it is 8,85 pound/feet. Just looked into the manual of the "400" out of curiosity cause they look excactly the same and it says 15Nm. Thats 11 pound/feet.

We continentals with our metric system,🔧😔
