What is the torque spec for the bolts that hold the axle to the main gear on a worm drive?

Are you asking about the bolts that hold the carrier together?

Mat,
Those bolts use castle nuts and cotter pins. They should be tightened very snug and then tightened more to allow the cotter pins to be inserted. I don't know of any torque specifications.
