I am in the process of lacing the wheels on my 1963 Pacer. Does anyone know how much torque to apply to the spoke nipples? There is no information on this in the shop manual.

Old school method: Tighten with finger tips only. Use a small screwdriver or wrench and drop test each spoke, if tight it will PING. if not it will THUD. Providing you can hear and not as deaf as I am.
