There is not necessarily a torque spec on that nut. Well, there is but I don't know of anyone that actually uses it. Typically there is a cotter key that goes in to hold the nut from backing off once tight. One thing I can tell you is to get it TIGHT! When yo get it to a point that you can tell it is not going to turn much more, take a look at the nut to see how much more it will need to align the holes for the cotter key to go through and turn it a bit at a time. It will take a pretty decent size wrench to get it as tight as you would need. The ratchet I normally use has a 16" long handle in it. If I use a shorter one I have pieces of pipe that I put over the end to make it longer for more leverage. That way I don't have to pull as hard to get it tight. Bear in mind, if it is not tight enough it can begin wobbling in the tapered seat and ruin the knuckle as well as the ball joint.

SOURCE: torque specs for front spindle (nut hold brake drum in place)

Tighten till the wheel bearing is tight. No one really uses a specification for that, do it by feel. when the nut is tight, and there is no play in the bearing. Should be about 15-20 ft/lbs, with about .001-.003 end play if you need exact numbers though.
