    I have a 2001 Toro Proline 44" belt drive, floating deck, walk behind mower. Does anyone have the torque value for the spindle nut that is on top of the spindle pulley and threads onto the spindle shaft and holds the spindle shaft in the spindle housing? I have the Toro service manual but it doesn't list a specific torque range for this big nut and it would seem to be a fairly critical item. The blade bolt has a torque value of 85 to 110 ft-lb, so I would think it would be somewhere around that but would really like to know the true torque spec, if there is one. If it helps, the model # of the Toro is 30257 and the part # of the spindle nut is 3219-7. These are sealed spindles (not greasable).

    Thanks for your help!
