Default Trans U-Joint nut torque specs

Checked Van Pelt's site and did some other searches but can't find the torque specs for the nut that holds the front u-joint to the trans on my '39 pick up. Anyone know the numbers? Thanks.

Thanks for the reminder. I bought a new washer, bolt, and lock washer assembly from Joe's. Torqued it to 30 lbs. finished some wiring issues and should be able to reinstall the motor with the new to me trans and repaired front cross member on Friday.
