Default Dr8ve shaft nut torque

So i needed to install a used set of drivecshaft bearings as i have no choice or money got them from local yard and he told me they are pre loaded and i do not need to preload them. My questions is if that is the csse what torque do use on the nut or do i just tighten till there is no play with locktight.

thanks

If its a bravo, bearing preload is 3-8 inch pounds on used bearings ( you need a small Inch pound torque wrench to check the rolling resistance ) lock tite the nut also... tighten nut til the washer doesn’t rotate then check/ adjust as neede

Default Yoke leak

Well i got new yoke seal, new oring seal as well . Tightened bearing nut till spacer would not spin, had local shop check preload, then installed it into the upper housing and torqued nut with spanner wrench to 200ft lbs. Still leaks oil just sitting no pressure..yoke surface was smooth and nice, seal fit nice and snug, seems like the oring is not sealing. I even tried some grease on it. Anyone have any ideas.
