All of the parts are screwing into the centre housing so all that material is the same. The lift cover has a high torque requirement, I think listed at 57 to 65 foot-pounds. That is bolted to the centre housing, same cast iron material. So if the cast iron in that area can take that torque then so should the other areas. However, I wouldn't think you need to torque the pto shaft to 65 foot-pounds and I wouldn't. I guess 30 to 40 foot-pounds if there isn't a listing. Now the hyd. pump is cast aluminium and over torquing those might might result in warpage or cracks. I will probably take them back to the 25 foot-pounds. The problem is the manuals I have found talk about pump to transmission and it is not bolting to the transmissions, it is bolting to the centre housing.
It is like the trumpet to center housing; by the size of the bolt and stud, it would suggest 30 foot-pound but then I read to torque them higher. I just don't want to screw up here. I am use to torquing every nut and bolt on a car to a specification.
