I'm doing a straight engine swap on a gator xuv 550 s4.

All has been going well I have the refurbished engine ready to go and I want to reattach the primary clutch. The Clutch is held on by one bolt and I'm wondering what I should torque it down to. I don't have access to a service manual

I believe 35/lbs ft would be appropriate

Correction..

It's a tapered shaft so it doesn't take much to hold the clutch in place.

Do you have the clutch removal tool to get the clutch off the original engine?

The torque spec of 35 ft/lbs is incorrect and will more than likely result in broken bolts

The Deere Tech Manual indicates the Torque Value is 26ft/lbs.

The information posted on OPE forum by the Small Engine Shop is stating 5ft/lbs, which is incorrect. The Small Engine Shop is using Metric Torque Values which again, is incorrect, the Clutch retaining bolt is SAE and not Metric.

I corrected the original post of the Torque Value being 35 ft/lbs to show the Deere Torque Value of 26ft/lbs. Even at 35ft/lbs is within the Torque Value for a SAE 9/16 bolt at any grade.
