Might be because they recommend using loctite 262 (RED - High strength) instead of the 242 (BLUE - Medium strength). That might be why they are recommending a lower torque
Service manuals can be wrong - maybe they wanted it torqued to 120 ft lbs for 'seating' and failed to direct the mechanic to back off and re-torque to 10 ft lbs?
