Keep in mind that the torque spec is going to conflict with the proper tightening method for those castle nuts.

The problem will occur when you have the correct torque the castle nut may be aligned such that you won't be able to insert the cotter key.

The correct procedure, after torquing ,is to loosen the nut past the nearest cotter key insertion point and then tighten the nut till the nearest insertion point is reached.

You'll still have the interface "wedge" tight enough and you'll also have the retention safety of the cotter key.
