By the way,if you have a model number on the deck you should be able to look it up on the tech site....thats where I looked,but I had to go and find what decks was for the 7016H and I only looked up one of the two it shows.I may have had the wrong one....

I just had to pull my center arbor (on my recently rebuilt 42" deck) because I DID NOT TORQUE the center nut:(!. I ruined the end of the shaft, fortunatly it looks like the the pulley and bearings are still intact. The only part damaged was the pully hub and spacer. I just looked up the part in my parts manual and it says the following; Grade 2- 3/4- 16 tpi = 180 ft lbs Grade 5-3/4- 16 tpi= 300 ft lbs Grade 8-3/4-16 tpi= 420 ft lbs I am not sure what grade the bolt is. mine has three "dents in the sides so I assume that the bolt is a grade 5. Also in the back of the parts manual it shows how to measure the bolt, and it shows to measure the id of the bolt which reads ~5/8". so the other torques above should be as follows; Grade 2- 5/8- 11 tpi= 90 ft lbs grade 5-5/8-11 tpi= 150 ft lbs grade 8- 5/8 11 tpi= 220 ft lbs I hope this helps JH
