    Ok, Im putting the hubs back on and I thrashed the weird lock washer on the 14FF you know the one with the tangs that go into the grooves on the lock nut. It looks like a spider or somthing. How do you install these with out bending the tangs? If you do bend the tangs can you still re use them? Any tips, personal experiences or anything would help me out a lot
    Thanks

    Reuse them. They are still good pieces as long as they are not split, cracked or broken around the ring. /forums/images/icons/wink.gif

    You know whats weird is these lock washers are listed under the dana 60 parts book. The 14 FF book says all that holds the nut in place is a key?? WTF?? So somebody put D60 lockwashers on my 14FF?? I dont get it...I guess ill re use them and forget about it!

    Here's a PM I got directly from "THE MAN"....Wes (ThatK30Guy) when I asked him the EXACT same question:

    Greg, the washers go in order starting first with:
    1. Flat washer with index key
    2. Lock nut, torque to 50 ft. lbs., back off 1/4 turn, retighten to 50 ft. lbs. all while turning the bearing hub to seat the bearing, then back off again 1/4 turn. Do not mess with this nut anymore.
    3. Spider washer
    4. Lock nut, torque to 50 ft. lbs. while turning bearing hub

    That's it. /forums/images/icons/smile.gif


    Worked for me....

    There's one more step... The outer tangs on the spider should be bent down into the slots in the outer nut. It keeps the nut from backing off. /forums/images/icons/cool.gif

    Yep, what Harry said....bend the tangs over the outer nut. /forums/images/icons/wink.gif (this keeps the outer nut from backing off) Thanks Harry! /forums/images/icons/wink.gif
