swing arm torque specs for r90/6?

Gents, Can anyone give me a short run down on installing the swing arm on an R90/6? I've got it centered, but cannot locate the torque spec for the pins, and the large nut. I've got old shop manuals but all it says is " install swing arm pin"... ?? Anyone able to pass along some info?
I did a search here but didn't locate the info either.. ( and I don't recall where I obtained the info last time :(

edit: also see the follow-up discussions; other inmates contributed information on the correct specs.

After centering, tighten one swingarm pin locknut to 75 ft-lbs. With the other locknut loose, torque that swingarm pin to 15 ft-lbs (to "settle" everything) , loosen it slightly and torque it to 7.5 ft-lbs. Making sure the swingarm pin doesn't rotate, snug the swingarm pin locknut (or good-n-tight).


Good rundown, Cray...
