Preface: This is my first tractor. I realize there is quite a bit of leverage on tractor components such as the backhoe and loader.
It was suggested by my sales guy to re-torque the loader arms at about 10 hours. It was more like, "Hey do you have a torque wrench? Yes. Okay, just give the loader arms a snug at around 10 hours." ---The guy didn't bother to mention the amount of torque required. oh boy.
So, I'm just about 10 hours or so and I just looked up the torque spec for the 120R loader in the manual and it looks like it's 491 ft lbs. It's a grade 10.9 bolt that appears to be about 24mm. I think the 15/16" socket I have basically fit on it but seems like it should be metric socket. Not to mention, I don't have a torque wrench the will come close to what is required.
Is that correct?
