    Hey guys,
    I have a rear Dana 60 FF and the drum setup looks exactly like the scanned in manual, but for the nut tightening procedure, they say to check the Service Manual. How do I go about tightening the nut? 50 ft lbs, then back off 1/4 turn and stake it?

    Thanks!
    Bryan

    If you can't find the exact spec, I would think the normal tighten it until the hubs starts to turn hard and then back it off a little, would work. You will probably want a little resistance in the hub spinning. Once the bearing seat all the way in it should be spot on. This is just a suggestion to get ya going. Im sure someone will chime in with the correct torque/procedure.
