[B]Hey Bug, In the discusions from the past, I believe it was stated that the torque on the blades was 75 lbs. [B]

You were correct, 75 ft lbs is stated in the manual of a Scag tiger cub.
The bolt is all the through the spindle with a nut on top, very easy to change blades.
And this design reduces the chance of having a bolt stuck and if so a repair would be quick.
Love my Scag,

and yes, I torqued the bolt.

Why use longer bolts with doubles ???? You just need to remove a spacer so the cutting height is correct anyway.... If you use a longer bolt and change notheing else the cutting height will be about a 1/4" lower than it should be.........................

On some mowers, a 1/4" longer bolt was needed. Not all by any means. Never ran doubles, and have never needed to.

A search will answer any of your longer bolt questions.

German torque specifications- goodentight.
Redneck torque specifications- tighten her til she strips, then back off a quarter turn.
