Nut should be tightened to 70 lbs/ft from my reading of the workshop manual. It should already be pre-loaded from before so no need to set that up. Just tighten to 70 lbs/ ft is my understanding.

Current: Triumph Vitesse 6 convertible with O/D 1964

21 Years ago...and my first car! : Triumph Herald 1200 Saloon/ Tristan conversion 1966

just to check: this procedure is for the early type diff which your herald should have and is identified by having a castellated nut/split pin arrangement....

And to add you should lock the coupling , to apply the torque ,   not wind up the transmission

like two bolts thro the coupling  holes and a bar between them.
