Hub nut tension question from before.


Sam, 2003 Ford E-150 v-6 front axle nut torque, It is not just a matter of torquing the nut as seen in a lot of videos, where they do install by feel. There is an actual procedure to ensure bearing seats correctly so it will last when properly lubed and installed. Below is the 5 step procedure from SKF pdf.
Tighten hub nut to 30 ft-lbs/40 Nm while spinning/ turning wheel. Back off 2 turns. While rotating brake disc, tighten to 17- 24 ft-lbs/22-34 Nm. Loosen nut 175 degrees. Tighten nut to 17 in-lbs/2 Nm.
Check the attached link instruction and guide, Good luck. "I hope this helped you out, if so let me know by pressing the helpful button. Check out some of my other posts if you need more tips and info."

Torque specs bearing


Honestly you should search google. It is right there. the inner hub nut must be torqued to 59 Nm rotate the hub three times in each direction and then loosen the inner hub nut until it can be turned by hand, then again tighten the inner hub nut to 25 Nm. the lockwasher against the inner hub nut, it only goes in one way, it has a small inner tab that locates with the key way of the hub, this is between the threads. Once the lock washer is in the correct position, you can now install the outer hub nut, this outer nut must be torqued to 47 Nm, once you have tightened this outer nut, please once again check that the starting effort is correct.

What are the torque settings for landcruiser hub and axle assembly


This is for the hub....front hub:

  1. Install the hub with a new gasket and tighten the mounting nuts to 23 ft. lbs. (31 Nm).
  2. Install the bolt and washer and tighten it to 13 ft. lbs. (18 Nm).
  3. Coat the inner hub splines with grease.
  4. Make sure the control handle on the cover is still at FREE (if not automatic), position a new gasket in the cover and install the cover so that the pawl tabs are lines up with the non-toothed portions of the hub body. Tighten the mounting nuts to 7 ft. lbs. (10 Nm).
This is for the rear hub:

To install:
  1. Place the hub on the axle housing and install the outer bearing.
  2. Install the lock plate with the lock plate tab positioned into the groove of the axle housing.
  3. Install and tighten the adjusting nut with the special tool used during removal.
  4. Torque the nut to 43 ft. lbs. (59 Nm). Rotate the hub a few times and retorque the adjusting nut to 43 ft. lbs. (59 Nm).
  5. Loosen the adjusting nut until the hub can be turned by hand.
  6. Tighten the nut a small amount and check the amount of pressure required to rotate the hub using a spring tension gauge.
  7. The recommended rotational torque is 5.7-12.6 lbs. (1984-88: 0.9-7.3 lbs.). Tighten or loosen the adjusting nut as required to obtain this reading.
  8. Align one of the axle housing slots with one of the adjusting nut slots. Install the lock screws into the holes of the adjusting nut which are at right angles to the aligned slots. Torque the lock screws to 35-60 inch lbs.
  9. Recheck the rational torque and install the axle shaft using a new gasket.
  10. Install the wheels and lower the vehicle.
