No, I mean connecting rod.
No, you mean pull rod. I don't care what the manual calls it, the connecting rod is in the damn motor, and doesn't have a bolt or thread in it.
And Hoov is right, you can't get a socket on the pull rod unless you remove the shock (even then I'm not sure, I've never tried that...) The first time I had it apart I used a crow's foot and a torque wrench and adjusted for the extra leverage. At best I don't think that is much more accurate than my internal wrist click and you risk rounding the lock nut.
So yes we care, yes we know, but I think there are some communication problems here.

...or as you say test it first, by trial and error.
Or put your high school trigonometry education to work. Which is why I didn't recommend that method.

..thanks to everyone but hick who didn't get pissed at me for posting it as connecting rod nut.
I was just having fun! Everything you needed to know was posted, and your response was: "Hey, don't get pissed at me!!" Just read the advice that was given, it was all there. That's how it works. You post a question, we answer, then you read it and make an effort to comprehend our response.
What is with your attitude fella? We figured out what you were talking about, with no help from you I might add, gave you some very good advice, but you're still not happy?!?!
I don't get that. Call your dealer and ask THEM how to torque the connecting rod nut.
