I can't find this spec in the table in my '67 shop manual, or I just can't read the table. Who wrote this thing?
In the same table, the center link is referred to by three different names depending on which row
of the table you're reading(!). Anyway, the PS ram to center link is the only one I can't make out. Anyone
know it?

The numbers in my repair manual are similarly elusive...but based on the nut size and experience, I'd torque it to a bit over 30 lb/ft...that seats the taper well...the castle nut and key are an added safety measure...

Sounds reasonable. I couldn't decide if it should be in the 30-40 range, or the 60-80 range
(like the ball joints are). I'll go with your recommendation of the 30-40 and check for any slop
after some running time. Thanks Pat.
