    Do I just snug these wheel bearing nuts down or is there a torque setting? What about the outer axle bolts... I should get a book, anyone have one scanned in?

    (Bows head down)... I should have done that.... I figure since I'm on here every day that I would have seen it go by...

    As usual, thanks HarryH3!

    All the torque specs look good but it apears that somebody has been futzing in this axle previous to my aquiring it. Does this sequence look right for a spindle without the key but with locking washers...

    1. Oil seal
    2. Hub inner bearing
    3. Snap ring
    4. Hub outer bearing
    5. Keyed flat washer (no locking tabs)
    6. Adjusting nut toqued to 50, then backed to 35, then backed slightly to fit locking washer.
    7. Locking Washer with tangs fitted into above nut
    8. Retainer nut torqued to 65
    9. Shaft to hub bolts
    10. Axle shaft

    Does the non locking keyed flat washer look to be in the correct position?

    Yes. Inner nut-washer-outer bearing.

    Sounds good.
