The wheel bearing nut? You just snug it up to your liking. I think, technically, they say it should take so many pounds of force to make the rotor spin....but as far as I know, there's not an exact torque spec for the adjuster nut.

Page 8 of this manual.

In a nutshell, Torque inner nut to 50 ft lbs., then back off 1/4 turn maximum. Install outer nut and torque to 50 ft. lbs. Total end play .001" - .010"

Try 200ft/lbs on that outer nut, otherwise it will back off. Use the aforementioned method for the first nut - torque to 50 then back off 90°, install lock washer and torque outer nut. Bend tabs over.

Yeah that is what my gutwas telling me on the inner. I know you don't want to over tighten it. As for the outer 200 ft lbs seems like a lot but if it is acting as a jam nut that makes sense. Thank you all for the response

i would not go 200 on the outer the lock washer with the tabs stops the outer nut from backing off even if you only tighten it 1 foot lb
i would say 50 to 100 max

The book says 50, but what do they know.


One thing I've heard is that some torque the inner nut to 100 or so before backing it off and setting zero lash. They say sometimes 50 won't fully seat the races.

200 ft. lbs. will shell out the threads on a well worn half high jam nut. Not needed, just needs to be tight enough to keep cornering forces from affecting free play. The keeper prevents it from unwinding.

Cool I'm going to do 50 inner and 80- 100 outer. I think that's plenty. Thanks for your help
