I'm putting in the drive shafts on my father's 76 ford f-250 4x4 ranger after putting in new u-joints. What is the general rule for torqueing the shackle bolts that hold the u-joint into place. What amount of torque?

Thanks in advance.

There are three basic sizes of U-joints: 1310 (approx. 3-1/4" wide with 1-1/16" or 1-1/8" diameter caps), 1330 (3-5/8" wide with 1-1/16" or 1-1/8" caps) and 1350 (3-5/8" side with 1-3/16" caps). 17 lb.-ft. on 1310 and 1330 joints, and 20 lb.-ft. on 1350 series joints. This info was taken off of Advanced Auto web sight.
