Also due to the way its used don't think one would torque it, should be just snug as they need the actuator to be able to move so it can stay aligned.
And it needs to have a cotter pin! As has been stated earlier in the thread. Seems to me that should be the end of the conversation..........

To answer the question, I don't think it was ever tightened. That being said, I went to look at the plans as I thought it needed a drilled bolt, but I see it's already been posted.

That's what I get for being busy out doing demos.
