Before I get aggressive with this nut (pic below), can someone confirm the torque value? I have a somewhat unclear manual that says 90-101 ft/lb. Correct?

Thanks!

yep, the "replacing a burman shaft type steering box seal" thread also gives that value

"...6. Back underneath the car, replace the drop arm being careful to line up your previously made index marks. Using some anti-seize compound will make it easier to remove, if necessary, in the future. Reinstall the large castiliated nut. Before torqueing, place a chunk of wood between the drop arm and the left steering stop. This will take the torque of the tightening process instead of transferring it to the steering mechanism. Torque to 90.4 – 101.2 ft/lbs. At the same time, line up the holes for the cotter pin. It is necessary to use a new cotter pin unless the old one is in excellent condition. As all steering parts, this is a safety item..."

and Jim G mentions the same value here:
