  • The Jesus nut torque value

    Left rear rotor roached - ate thru the pad at the last track session so it's gotta come off.

    Somebody remind me what the Jesus nut torque value is please. Ive got the 43mm (or whatever it is) socket.

    Checked the manual: 200 lb/ft.
    Note that one goes on clockwise while the other goes on counter-clockwise.

      Thanks. It's not too bad - I'm debating having it turned or getting a new one - they're $51 bucks from CC.

      Opinions?

          The axle nut is as Magnus reports 200 ft lbs. I've reused mine with no worries.

          I might have spares ones but won't look unless you need it tomorrow.

          If you have stock Spitefire rotors you can get them from local places for $20 to $40.

          I think Magnus got some from Moss.

            Moss has a variety of spitfire rotors in stock. Just give them a call.

              Where are they (Moss)?

              My understanding is that the left hand (driver's side) nut is the left-handed one. Iow to loosen turn wrench to rear of car (to the right). Correct?

                mossmotors.com Goleta, CA.

                I don't remember which nut went which way. Just try them on and you will see how they are threaded.

                  Turn towards the back of the car to loosen, both sides. My bicycle pedals reminded me!:D
