What torque does the first nut get torqued to?? 2nd nut??
I have the single nut design with the square key and spring clip that hold it all in place. For you i would follow the same procedure as for the 10 bolt or D60 front spindle nuts.
So what do you torque yours down too? I asked this question a month or so ago and no one answered. I have the same setup but mine is a van width and lots of stuff different from a truck ff
here's what i do. it might not be right but
i first tighten the nut as tight as i can get i mean don't stand on the wrench but put some weight into it. while doing this have some one spin the tire buy hand, this will ensure even pressure on the bearings. then back off the the nut till it's loose and becarefull not to move the hub. the retighten the nut with your hand turning the hub socket, get it as tight as you can with you hand. then take your wrench and put a good 1/4 turn on it past the point of hand tight.
there you go. it might not be right but i've never had a hub come loose.
That's a bit to tight
You tighten the nut to around 100 ftlbs while spinning the hub.
Back the nut off untill it is loose.
While spinning the hub torque the nut to 50ftlbs.
Back off a 1/4 turn.
The bearings are now adjusted, install the lock key and the retaining ring or if it is double nut hub install the lock ring and torque the lock nut to 150, bend a tab over to lock it down and install the shaft.
