Measure pinion turning torque before removing, then remove yoke and install new one and set it to original turning torque. If you have already removed it and didn't measure you can try to tighten it as much as you can with a 1/2 ratchet because it takes 650-850 ft/lbs to begin crushing the crush sleeve.. But to be honest since you didn't measure it will be best to replace the crush sleeve and retorque the pinion to 35in/lbs for old pinion bearings..
I hope this helps,
