    http://www.californiacaterhamclub.co...emblyGuide.pdf - page 116: Hub nuts 200 lbft / 271 nm.

    As Ron pointed out, it probably differs between model years. The guide is for a 2002 car.

    My Lotus owner's manual shows 110 ft-lb for the axle nuts on the very similar Standard 10 axle.

    They are differently handed and naturally torqued. The initial torque of 200 lb/ft (if memory servers) is quite a bit. I've never heard of any coming loose.

    *edit: The above is for DeDion setups. Don't know about live axles.

    Are they both right hand thread or is one right and one left?

    I guess the title says it all, I am putting my car back together after the key way pin saga (If you have been following it) and I notice that the nut holding the rear hubs on is a simply nylock nut! On all my previous English cars it has been a Castle nut with a cotter pin.

    Thoughts on this please? Seems rather unsafe....
    Thanks, Pat
