Are you talking about the little wedge you hammer in? Dorman has them most auto parts stores should be able to get them for you.

if you can't find one, i use a small flat washer, just cut the washer in half and drive it it the same as the key.

The stage 8 or the old fashion kind with 2 nuts and a washer in the middle of them that you bend a tab over. The wedges sometimes fall out.

I torqued my axel nut to 30lbs, I tried what the manuel said but it was to loose after I backed off the nut. I tighten the nut till the drum is hard to turn then loosen it and then tighten it to 30lbs.

hope this helps

Torque is 120-140 ft. lbs. then i'll rotate the drum and smack it with a rubber mallet on the edge and check torque again. If it moved i'll repeat and if it didn't move back nut off about 1/4 turn and spin drum to see if it spins ok.
