does any one know what you are supposed to torque a spindle nut on a 2wd ford e350 to?

Usually I just crank it up til it's snug with a pair of smaller channel locks, then spin the rotor to make sure it spins freely, then usually either tighten it just a bit to loosen it just a bit to line up the cotter pin keyway in the nut, just don't leave it so loose, a wee bit of preload is not a bad thing.
