I've never had any problem getting them loose after locktite. the torque specs on these are 25 lbs. I always put em a little over 30. its up to you. I seldom get on here anymore and you will probably never hear from me again, but I will give you some pointers on the nv4500. 5th gear is a world of its own, its located in the tail housing with reverse and likes to fall completely off the shaft. If you ever tear into your tranny, I will highly recomend you either double nut 5th gear, tap set screws directly through the nut into the shaft, put a tack weld on the threads or all of the above. 3rd is notorious for loosing synchronizers. This transmission does not have a cooling system on it nor a dip stick. You wont know your low on fluid until its too late. check it now and then. 20 min of your time is worth saving some big money. Like I said I've been through 9 of these tranny's. I finally converted to the nv5600 and have not heard a peep for nearly 2 years... I hope you get it figured out bud, Cody
