Their surrounds bottom on the aluminum when you get tight- I think the spec is 10ft/lbs- Basically once it bottoms, make sure it's snug. I use the patented DanG torque wrench- My arm. Comes with experience though- Use a 1/4" or 3/8" torque wrench until you get a "feel" for how tight is how tight.

actually I believe its even light then that, because I was using my inch/lb torque wrench to tighten them down to spec. I double check in a little bit.

BTW 40 rods/hoghead is really crappy mileage.
