If tighten securely means using a 3/8 ratchet then I found I could get close to 40 foot-pounds on the pto shaft by pushing hard. I went back and used the torque wrench and tighten each to 40. I am assuming good to go. I didn't lubricate although the threads might not have been completely dry; I used a hand held wire brush to clean the threads and I used a tap to clean the bolt holes; my die that is marked 7/16-14 doesn't seem to fit the bolts and I find that strange.
