Happy Birthday Vic, Can't always agree with the things you do,No need to convert Yard/hundredweights or whatever, I never use torque wrenches, only confusing. My theory is : A lot more bolts were snapped by torque wrenches than by feel on common spanners.
Yes, Loctite on that nut may lead to offensive language at a later stage unless you chose a low strength for peventing unscrewing once preload on nut has disappeared. I´d go for Locite 221 or 222, no "normal" thread lock, too much force on big threads like here. Maybe think about a tab washer that can be removed without force, even on a crank that you´d have to lock somehow unless using a rattle gun.
I assume the outer cover fitted on the inner BEFORE you tried fitting the electric leg? Do the holes in your original T4/2 line up with the new electric leg replacement? If no I would be asking the supplier for a no charge replacementRedrilled blue indicated cover holes initially measured 0.250" to 0.265" (17/64).
Helped a small amount , but bottom holes still off by 20-30 thou.
Hand filing the two bottom holes to raise them as needed.
Concern now is the two screw heads fitting existing recess in case.
