I fastened mine by hand also. The torque on these isn't really about the fastener being at it's optimum, rather than the press fit that results from the torque on the shafts themselves. So, overtorquing won't strip the nut. I went definitely higher than 18. 25 where I could read the torque, very snug elsewhere. I installed the RSR seals too. Dry so far, almost a year later. If you read Wayne's book, he recommends higher torque on leaky or old cam housings.
