Default Checked with A&P

I stopped in a checked with the A&P at the airport today. He said these nuts are kept tight by the internal tooth lockwasher, and all we're shooting for is to get the lock washer to bite a bit, but not crush the teeth of the washer. So, as a rule of thumb, get it snug, and then a quarter to half turn and you're done.
