Be careful when using these torque settings for your Lambretta. These figures are intended to be used with new, high quality fixings and not 30 year old bolts, so take it easy. It would be wise to change them anyway so dont stress if you shear a bolt, better to have it happen when your kneeling beside your scooter in the garage, than when you are overtaking a truck on the M4. 

When tightening the rear hub nut start by using the lower figure, you can then go up to the higher setting in order to make the locking plate line up.
