Bolt torque on pinion seal

My name is Merl Rosenthal and my wife and I live in Richland, WA. I am a
friend of Monte Morris.  Monte introduced me a couple of weeks ago.  I have a
question.  I am in the process of completely restoring a 1980 MGB.  This is my
first restoration and I am having a ball.  The car had been sitting outside
the last 16 years.  Because I live on the desert side of Washington state, the
body was straight and basically rust free but everything was shot.  I have
completely disassembled the car, inspected and cleaned all parts, stripped all
the paint off the body, etc.  I just got it out of the paint shop and it looks
great.  I will start reassemble during x-mas vacation.

Here is my question.  What is the torque setting for the pinion nut?  I just
replaced the seal only so I do not have to worry about the crush washer.
Also, what size is the nut? I used a large claw wrench and a shim to take it
off but need the correct size to reinstall it with my torque wrench.
