Which nut are you referring to?
The small adjustment nut?
The hub nut that secures the hub into the basket?
Or the tub nut that holds the primary gear to the basket?

If its the locking the nut for the pin adjustment, then that is just snugged up good, it only holds the adjustment pin in place so it does not move.
The hub nut torque spec is 68.5 ft #
The tub nut that holds the primary gear to the basket is jam up and jelly tight with a big impact. :)

Just be sure you are not confusing the Hub Nut with the Tube nut. You do not want to torque the hub nut past spec.

Here is a photo of the hub nut just to make sure we are talking apples to apples.
You are really supposed to use 41 mm wrench to hold the generator rotor when tightening this nut as well.
Removing the generator cover does open a new can of worms though.
You have to wrestle the cover away from the magneto and the torque limiter usually falls out onto the floor along with a couple washers and bushing.
