What is the lug-mounting torque requirement for installing mechanical lugs to a Power Pact L frame breaker?

ISSUE:
What is the lug-mounting torque requirement for installing mechanical lugs to a Power Pact  L frame breaker?

PRODUCT LINE:
Powerpact L frame breaker.

RESOLUTION:
The mounting screw for all mechanical lug kits to the Powerpact L breaker is 327 lb-in (37 N-m).  This includes lug kits: 
AL400L61K3
AL400L61K4
AL600LS52K3
AL600LS52K4
AL600LF52K3
CU400L61K3
CU400L61K4
CU600LS52K3
CU600LS52K4
CU600LF52K3

Note that this is different from the wire-binding screw torque.
Wire-binding screw torque is 442 lb-in (50 N•m) for all lug kits except for CU400L61K3 CU400L61K4 which take 275 lb-in (31 N•m).

Note also that the torque requirements are the same if these lugs are applied to Compact NSJ and Powerpact D frame breakers.
