Question

I can't find the torq spec on a spindle castle nut (holds the rotor on)in my assembly, or service manual, can anyone help?

It is for a single piston setup (69 Camaro)

thanks for any help!

There is no specific static torque for the spindle nut, as it's secured as part of adjusting the wheel bearings, as follows: With the rotor, bearings, etc. in place, tighten the nut to 12 ft-lbs while turning the rotor to seat the bearings, then back off the adjusting nut one flat and insert the cotter pin. Endplay for properly adjusted wheel bearings is .001"-.008".
