    I need to replace a set of blade shear bolts on my Walker and I'm unsure of how much torque to apply. I don't have the manual so I'm kind of in the dark.

    I would appreciate all replies.

    The shear bolts have no set torque value, just need to be tight. The larger 5/8-18 blade mounting nut needs to be torqued to 60 ft lbs. Doing that applies the correct shear value needed on the shear bolts.

    Nice to have an extra pair in your tool box since your buying some anyway.
