Lug nut torque

Does anyone know, or where I can find, the lug nut torque specs for the F53 chassis ('09-22,000GVWR-22.5" wheels)? My internet search came up empty.

One or two piece lugs?

It may be stamped on the nut.

If two 450 PSI is what I found.

Small thing,but do you see in the chart where there are two ** after 5/8" flanged nuts rotating flange (twice)' but only one * in the key below the chart that is shown twice.

I'm assuming the ** was meant to be shown as the second single * in the key.

I would catch simple mistakes like this when reviewing aircraft and aircraft comportment maintenance manuals that were written by supposedly knowledgeable people that were well paid.

I have to look, but the spec is probably in the Ford manual. 450 foot pounds seem a bit high. I would think more in the range of 150 ft lbs.

Ours is 150 with the 19" wheels, but yours is 450. Here are some photos directly from the Ford manual.

My TT 15" wheel lugs are 105 Ft-lb.
The 17" wheels on my F250 are 155 Ft-lb.

I can't believe how much the torque jumps up from a 19" to a 22" wheel. Glad I have the smaller wheels since I don't have a torque wrench that goes that high.
