Can you torque Nylock nuts?

Nylock adds a secondary retention to the nut. The main thing is the torque. If the material is a Grade 5 nut as others suggested, then use a correct torque for the material. The Nylock is to resist the release of the high vibration environment that could loosen a nut with a single torque charge.
