My tq wrench only goes up to 160. Looks like 180 is the spec. Is it safe to just take it to 160 and then maybe a half turn more on the castle nuts? I have the greasing tool but pretty sure I’m required to take that whole assembly off with the castle nut.

I would wait for someone else with more knowledge but I think a half turn would put over 200 .
It dawned on me.. as long as the nut is in past enough for the cotter pin to go through I should be good. Hit it with the impact until it cleared the hole and I left it at that.

Never try to go higher poundage than what your torque wrench is designed for as that can throw off the calibration. Use a bigger torque wrench or use a ratchet or a power bar if you need to go higher than your torque wrench is designed for.

Yes I know this. I just put enough on it to clear the cotter pin hole.
