Hello, Just got back in from a test trip. After about 1/4 mile of flawless running we sheered the sheer pin. What is the torque on the retaining nut supposed to be?? snug with the fingers? snug with slip joint pliers? tight with 10 inch a cresent wrench? My shop manual only says to grease the splines and install the prop. HELP PLEASE !! Thank You for the help. John
