    My Hub nuts are loose and I am going to tighten them and I am going to check the bearings and all that good stuff. But I need to know how tight to get the inner hub nut and the outer hub nut. I am going to start this project in about a half hour so Please respond soon thanks.

    This is right out of the Haynes manual:

    You need to be rotating the wheel the whole time.

    '67-'76: attach torque wrench to hub socket. tighten inner nut down to 50 ft. lbs, then back it off 90* then retighten nut to 35 ft lbs., then back off 3/8's of a turn.

    install lock ring and pin, turning the adjusting nut only far enough so the pin will engage the nearest notch. Install the lock nut, tighten to 80 to 100 ft. lbs.

    Hope this helps! :D
