That is NOT correct!

Your FSM will have a bolt torque for a 10mmx1.25 bolt....which is what was used on the 08/75 and later front spindles....

The bolts on the drum brake spindle are 8mmx1.25, and will twist off at anything much over 25 foot-pounds...

It will be called out in the rear of the manual, if it is not printed in the section where the work is being detailed....

Did it mention the saftey wire? ;)
