Axle Stud Torque...

I have 1/2" x 3" studs and was wondering what to torque the studs to in the axle...

I have been told anyware from 100ft lbs to 135ft lbs.

I know to torque the lug nuts to around 85 or so ft lbs, but cant get an answer to the stud to axle...any help would be great!

thanks. dave.

PS, these are "Strange axles and studs" if that matters?

'69 camaro, was orig SS 396 car.
original tranny & 12 bolt

Now:
568 ci, Merlin Pro block
Callies crank, Oliver rods
AFR CNC 325, Nash 5 speed, 9'' Ford 35 spline locker
F1 Procharger that will get on soon...

Re: Axle Stud Torque...

I did not call strange yet...and they are bolts, not a knurled back.

They are 1/2" with a hardened washer and 3/4" head.

I did check some other info and its still up in the air...seems most info on the yellow bullet forum says to torque to around 95ft lbs to really tight!

I guess i will call strange and see what they say...just thought that the box would have some instructions as to the torque value.

thanks.
