[DML] Re: Is there a torque spec on the tie rod end stud

Try looking in the Workshop Manual on A:03:03 3rd item from the
bottom. Again on H:02:01 and also Service Bulletin ST-09-7/81. You
see, if you looked you would have found it in 3 different places. In
reality even if you torqued it to spec you may have to "overtorque" it
so you can line up the cotter pin. It is VERY important that the hole
in the steering knuckle and the stud of the tie rod end be clean and
free of any scratches or nicks. It is a taper fit together and will
not lock properly if dirt or scratches are between the parts. Before
installing remove the dust boot and put plenty of grease in the joint.
