I got a 04 rhino 660 and I'm putting new seals in the rear end due to pinion seal leaking. I got all the seals installed with some sealant around the pinion nut but my question is how tight should the nut be? I put a impact on it but don't wanna keep hammering on it.

I may have over tightened it a little but there's no crush washer in there is there? Just a spacers to set the pinion depth right

Just the bearing retainers. I'm not too sure if you can do damage by over tightening it. I'd be worried if it was ridiculously overtightened like 150lbs. Maybe to be on the safe side check it with a torque wrench.

I always just hit mine with an impact. Not to much and never had an issue.
