Questions about hub install
« on: April 18, 2019, 06:40:09 PM »
I replaced the hub/rotor on my 1986 k10. How much do i tighten the spindle nuts? No matter how much i tighten it theres still slop in the hub assembly and now im worried that i overtightened it. Any help is appreciated

From the Vile One...

"Adjust the bearings by rotating the hub and tightening the inner adjusting nut to 50 ft. lbs., then loosening it and retightening to 35 ft. lbs. Next, back the nut off 3/ 8turn or less. Turn the nut to the nearest hole in the lockwasher. Install the outer locknut and torque to a minimum of 80 ft. lbs. (108 Nm) on 1980 models, 160-205 ft. lbs. (216-277 Nm) on 1981 and later 1/ 2and 3/ 4ton models, and 65 ft. lbs. (88 Nm) on 1 ton vehicles. There should be 0.001-0.010 in. bearing end-play. This can be measured with a dial indicator."
