In the gear grinder thread I mentioned I had to replace the left front tire on my 2WD X754 due to a sidewall puncture.
OK; there is only one bolt holding the front wheels on 2WD models, and they are torqued to 54 lb/ft. I can get the bolt torqued to 40 lb/ft with any value above that never achieving the set value on my torque wrench. It feels like the bolt wants to break; so I back off. I check the right front wheel bolt that has never been disturbed since I bought the machine new, and it clicks just fine at 54 lb/ft per the shop manual.
The shop manual makes no mention of replacing the bolt if it was removed with a new one. In other words, WTF?
I'll probably just get a new bolt and call it good.
