Im replacing my outer tie rod ends, and need to know what the correct torque on the castle nut should be. If I remember correctly, I'm thinking I read somewhere approx 45 lbs. Anyone know for sure? Thanks in advance!

ball joints, tie rod ends, drag link to pitman arm, all the ones with a cotter pin ... 42-47 lbs while aligning the NEW cotter pin. This from the Chevy Shop Manual.
