    Torque Setting for Alligator Wind-Cutter Rotors?

    Does anyone know if there's a recommended bolt torque setting for installing Alligator Wind-Cutter rotors? The rotors don't come with any documentation. They aren't marked with any torque value. Nothing on Alligator's web site about it, that I could find. And, can't find any info about it anywhere else, either. My Avid HS1 rotors are stamped with 6.2 Nm. You think that would be kosher for the Alligators, too?

    Yes. The recommended torque is related to the thread pitch and the materials from which the hub and fasteners are made. The rotor material isn't a factor. The fasteners often come with Loctite. I like to use a nickel anti-seize. Choose either, just don't assemble it dry.

    I am curious to know how they work. And Rusty is 100 percent correct.
