Standard torque specs for the size of bolt should work. I usually put a dot of lock tight on the threads and turn it in good and tight with a 8" ratchet, not a breaker bar.

ok thanks all Now I do not have the tractor in front me at buddys house. When I tighten that nut on sat did not check to see if the bearings inside pulley to see if this nut preloads the bearings? That's why I was wondering about torqueing that bolt.

Hi there this is the first time I am adjusting an electric clutch. where did you install shim?

Well everything is good to go I torqued that bolt just enough to collapse the spring lock washer. I also put a few drops of lock tight on bolt prior to install. Thanks again mustang man If some gets a chance I Shure would like to know where to shim the clutch?
