Worried I over torqued rear output yoke

Reinstalled my SYE housing and seal, and I reused the yoke nut after reading that if it’s not a new nut to put some red thread locker . The torque specs for the nut are 150ft lbs and i set my wrench to 130 ft lbs becasue I was always told to reduce torque with thread locker. Nearing 130ft lbs I suddenly felt the nut move too easy and stopped right away . i am nervous I may have stripped the yoke nut … any thoughts ?

Stripping the nut and over torquing are two different things. I doubt you did either especially if you were using a torque wrench.

A nut with a torque spec of 150lbs will not suddenly go soft & mushy like a stripped nut all that easily...I seriously doubt you stripped anything.

If you are worried, back it off and inspect.
