Are there any torque guides I can use? For example, looking for the pto shaft retaining bolts I see P.T.O. Bearing Retainer Nuts 12-15 ft.lbs on https://fordtractorcollectors.com/service/specifications-and-data/?fbclid=IwAR0ixp35hjiVlN4JAKFiSvVfCfbFHLm-MtRoPNHmxlqLv7FlumPi__qfKVg.

Sounds low to me for that application; I would think torque that low with running equipment off the pto would find the bolts vibrating loose. What is a PTO cover bolts? THey are listed at P.T.O. Cover Bolts 35-40 ft.lbs. Then I see that the P.T.O. Shifter Plate 40-55 ft.lbs; is that the side cover that has the PTO lever to engage/disengage the PTO? If so, then that sounds a bit high to go to 55.

Then I saw this: Axle to Center Housing Nuts 55-65 ft.lbs. If that is the trumpet; then I only torqued them to 30; that was probably a disaster waiting to happen.

I don't think I am reading things correctly or know what they are referring to.
