In my manuals it does not specify how tight to torque the countershaft nut on my 850 gearbox??? It of course has the retaining lock washer and screw. How tight should I get it and is it necessary to get it terribly tight if lock ring is used---Thanks
The counter shaft sprocket nut torque setting is 80lbs /ft according to my NVT workshop manual.

I would make sure it is tight. You wouldn't want that coming off at speed and wrecking the inner chaincase, or possibly worse, a locked back wheel if it jammed, although I personally have never heard of one coming loose.
Thanks Reggie. For the countershaft torque specs

Hey Reggie--Thanks for the info. I could not find the torque info I needed to be sure the nut did not come loose. This is a critical link and I did not want to screw up---I wish you all had some guitar or stringed instrument questions I could help with. I have been repairing stringed instruments for 35 years and would love to return the favor if any of you have any questions in that field. Don't think it is inappropriate--Just ask away if you need to---Mark C.
