    The Haynes manual doesn't have this bolt torque in it. Can someone tell me what the torque should be for the four bolts that mount the inner drum brakes to the spindle?

    I think you are talking about the backing plate for the drum. The torque on those bolts per Factory Service Manual is 33-43 Ft-lbs.

    I'll be the Meatwad to your Shake! Is that weird to say? Haven't watched that show for years...need to introduce my wife to it.

    Getting back on topic, you are correct, it's the drum backing plate to the spindle. Thank you for the quick help!
