Have you by chance compared some of the torque specs, like doo-hickey locking bolt?
115inch pounds in the -01 book as I understand, way too High for the case threads to survive!
10-ish foot lbs (115 inch lbs) doesn’t seem like much for that size bolt, but I decided (after much reading of catastrophe here) that it’s the case that’s too weak to handle it. Gen 2 calls for 78 inch lbs, why the heck would Gen 3 need to be that much tighter on essentially the same part. I think an engineer wanted to infuse some “planned obsolescence” into the system 🫤

I refer to the Kwik-specs sheet updated by @Tom Schmitz. Will Tom be doing one for the Gen 3? Hint…hint
