Default New Batteries

I will finally be taking my cart out of storage in the next week and installing new batteries as well. My question is, what is the torq spec for the battery cable nut? I just don't want to over or under tighten them.

Torque is determined by multiplying the applied force by the distance from the pivot point to the point where the force is applied.
In the English system, torque is measured in “foot-pounds” or “inch-pounds”.
In the Metric system, torque is measured in “Newton-meters”.
8.851 inch-pounds = 1 Newton-meter
1 foot-pound = 12 inch-pounds
16 ounce-inches = 1 inch-pound
1 Newton = 1 kilogram-meter per second squared
Torque = Force x Moment Arm
You can use the torque wrench you have if the scale on your wrench is equal to the right amount. For example 120 inch pounds divided by 12 is 10 foot pounds.
