145 lb-ft torque. Don't really need a torque wrench if you have a big breaker bar. Most importantly, the washers have to be oriented the correct way to hold torque. The flat washer is actiually a spring washer which is concave with the convex side against the nut.

Just give it as much force as you can with a breaker bar and you'll probably be fine.
Just don't jump on the breaker bar tightening it
