    Question Torque value @ hex nut

    GH metal washers,new spring washers,GH ceramic bearings.
    As per factory manuel,I'm torqueing to 22 lbf*ft.
    I'm only getting 29 to 31 lbs @ slip.
    I've followed factory & the 06 rebuild instructions to the letter.The only thing that I've done differant is use pre heated oil to coat clutch/gear assy.
    The only area of "uncertainty" is when I was torqueing the hex nut it felt that I reached 22lbs prematurely.Before,it seemed that the nut threaded down the shaft further,thereby loading up the spring washers?
    Question is ,Do I stay @ 22 lbs & compensate with shim? ,or thread the nut further down until I reach "bottom" or until the target slip torque?

    Found the problem
    Torched 3/8 drill bit,slide inner race on bit to transfer heat,"freeze" shaft,applied heat to engine side bearing housing.
    The bearing practicaly fell down to the end of shaft without any force...RIGHT ON! Wasting no time,applied shaft & bearing inside housing..Fell right into place with no force...I'm on a roll here!
    Unbenounced to me,when I started working on the other end, I inadvertently slide the shaft back thru the bearing 1/8 of an inch off the shaft bearing support,It cooled & stuck there & I continued to assemble none the wiser
    The disassembly was painfull.
    Starting over....as soon I go retrieve my ratchet...50 yards down the road
