Also, confirming, the "cupped" washer has the larger opening facing away from the nut, correct? Flat washer not needed in addition, unless for thread spacing?
Torque should be about the same as the respective AN3 and AN4 bolts we are replacing?
Sean, Don't use the full torque. All you need is enough to hold the pin securely. It's only a shear connection. Some people have mentioned that they tap the pins in to seat them and gently tighten the nuts, and this is what I'll do.
Also, the cupped washer is to clear the pin on that end. The narrow end of the pin pokes out of the hole just a bit (try to minimize that) and the cup washer allows for that.
