Revolution Lock out bolt torque spec

Does anyone know what the torque spec is for the 3/4" lock out bolts used to put the Revolution pinbox into conventional service?

Thanks O.C! The dealer said to go 150 ft/lbs than indicated they didn't really know, couldn't find it in the manual and told me "they come to them pretty darn tight". I thought 150 was low that's why the question. There isn't any spec in the instruction manual. I did find an old Sidewinder manual that gave a spec of 275 ft. lbs for the similar bolts. My torque wrench only goes to 250 ft.lbs and I'm not sure I can without a decent size pipe. They are grade 5 bolts and I don't want to strip them out with my awesome super strength! ;-)

If your wrench will go to 250lb/ft, take it to the max.

If you are concerned, set it at 225lb/ft. Should be just fine.

BTW for all viewing this thread that have Revolution hitches. Check to make sure your wedge is torqued to 150 ft/lbs. routinely. When removing mine I found it to much to easy to loosened the bolts. The dealer assured me, and I believe him, they always torque the wedges to 150.I think hitching and some lateral motion takes it's toll and causes them to loosen. Takes two minutes to check.

Did/does your wedge have slots or holes? If it is that laminated POS from Reese, it's no wonder it loosened.

It was an optional solid piece made for a Husky hitch. I think it had a slot in it.
It wasn't loose like it was moving, I think it was close, and would be by the end of this season. I had 3 years on it.

If it has slots, you can't keep them tight!
