Per a discussion on caimag.com, the torque spec for the transmission drive sprocket is way too high. The consensus seems to be that it should be 50 - 75 ft-lb.panhead wrote:OHV Big Twin torque specifications

120 is way too high. My Genuine James trans sprocket Nut stripped out at about 90 ft-lbs. When I get the replacement nut I’ll stop at 80 ft-lbs. Also not gonna use the book “wack special wrench with a mallet “ method.
