I know it's maybe not 'proper', but we've always just tighten it by hand, check again if a little while just to make sure, if ya feel the need. I don't remember ever twisting one off by hand unless it was cross-threaded. I have had to use a 3 or 4 foot long cheater to change the tire on my pickup---after the DEALER rotated them. Yea, I let him hear about it, too.

Your local Case IH dealer should be able to tell you.

Bolt torque is determined by the size and pitch of the tread including the bolt material and the material you are threading into. You should be able to find charts on the internet that will give you the proper torque when you know the above information. i have gotten them for smaller fastners, under 1/2 inch, and saw listings for larger sizes.

I'd determine the picth and the bolt diameter and then Goggle up fastener torque tables.

Thanks for the help guys. Case dealer finally called back after 2 days and told me 1/2" bolt 90 ftlbs, 9/16" bolt 145 ftlbs, and 5/8" bolt 180 ftlbs depending on what I have. Pretty big torques compared to what Iowa Hay Guy took a picture of from his manual. It's getting harder to get the proper info from dealers unless your spending big bucks there.

I'm also a licenced heavy duty mechanic and my 1/2" impact gun puts out 800 ftlbs, so that would not be a good idea. haha

Thanks again
