There is no torque specs,this nut has to be tightened back like it was ,the best thing to do,was,to late now,is to use a torque wrench to remove the nut,and remember the torque,and when replacing it,torque it back to that spec,the reason being,there is a crush sleeve between the front pion bearing ,and the rear pinion bearing,and it has to be crushed to a certain amount,to aquire deepness into the ring gear,anyway just give it about 25 lbs torque,any more the crush sleeve will crush even more and the deepness of the pinion will be too much.

150 foot lbs. Will need to put a pipe wrench and extender pipe on flange to secure it while you tighten it. becareful not to evertighten. Make sure shaft will turn when you are done.

SOURCE: I need the torque specs
The pinion nut does not have a torque spec. as in how tight the nut is. The amount of torque is measured in bearing preload. You will need a "torque to rotate" torque wrench. If you are using new bearings the torque spec. is 15-25 in. lbs. If you are using your old bearings the torque spec. is 10-20 in. lbs to rotate. To measure this you will need to tighten the nut in small increments then use the torque to rotate wrench to turn the pinion without the carrier/ ring gear installed. Repeat until desired torque is reached.

you need to know what rear end you have if it's a 8.25, 8.37, or 9.25 the pinion nut torque is a minimum of 210 ft. lbs.
if you have the Dana model 44 190-290 ft. lbs.
if you have a Dana model 60 215-315 ft. lbs.

SOURCE: how tight do i torque
I found 210 foot pounds. This must be done accurately, so clean and lub the threads if rusty.
Make a long bar with 2 holes in it that you can attach to the flange, so that you are not putting this pressure on the differential or rest of drive line.
