One of the POs replaced all of the front end parts(tie rods,etc) on the 56. There are no cotter pins holding any of the nuts on.
Do I tighten the nuts hand tight then add cotter pins or are they supposed to be torqued?

I think tie-rod end castle nuts are torqued 35 ft lbs and then if the cotter pin doesn't go in tighten it a little more until it does...

I have never torqued one though, I just get them good and tight...
