Hi Andy

I've always been great believer in doing wheel studs up tight (I use a spider, not the crappy wheel spanner provided by the manufacturer :roll: ) - in my truck mechanic days it was "tighten them till they squeal" :twisted: - which is what I suspect David was hinting at (definitely not PC these days 8O

However, things have moved on. As you say it's a 2.8JTD I take it's a Fiat chassis - the figures I've found are as follows:
Ducato 2.8JTD 1998 - 2002 - 160 Newton metres (118 lbs/ft)
Ducato Maxi - 1994 - 2002 - 180 Newton metres (133 lbs/ft)

Thanks very much Keith I knew somebody would know will have to have them reset the next time I pass the tyre shop, and get back the £12 plus vat they charged for valves they did not fit.

In another topic about sump plug torque settings, I suggested - tongue firmly in cheek - that the correct torque is 'as tight as they will go and then another half turn' .

Clearly not recommended.

If it's an alko back end, they may have specific settings, though I'd be surprised if they differed from Fiat.

PS Keith knows what he's on about!
