    My stock nut was stainless, and a Nylock, 75 pounds would be plenty.

    Replacement 3 years ago was aluminum, and was told "make it real-tight".

    Locktite isn't a bad idea, the blue stuff #242, not red 271 or green 260.

    The biggest reason for using the loctite is not for keeping the nut on, but the water out of the threaded area. 70-75# is about right, my buddy always says TDB....(tight, don't break).
