Dana 60 wheel bearing spindle nut torque spec

I just deleted the other thread that I initiated, requesting torqe spec for Dana 60 wheel bearing spindle nuts. tit-for-tat between me and mj turned into a negative pissing match. I apologize for that.

Posting the technical content I was looking for, as it may prove useful for others in the future.


Found it on the BillVistas PDF repository:
(edit, broken link. Fixed)
http://www.pirate4x4.com/tech/billav...DFs/index.html

Torque inner adjusting nut to 50 ft/lbs to seat bearings.

Rotate hub, then back off inner adjusting nut one fourth turn maximum.

Assemble lock washer, turn nut to the nearest hole in the washer.

Assemble outer locknut and torque to 50 ft/lbs.

this should be moved to newbie tech.

you are a moron to delete the other thread as it contained better info on how to set your bearing clearance then what you have reposted here.

'torque spec' is an incorrect description.
perhaps you should change it to reflect what it is, 'assembly instructions'

anyone that has ever set a bearing knows this.

Good stuff there. So, in conclusion, mj knows more about setting up wheel bearings than Dana Corp. The correct method is just tighten em down some, then back em off a bit.
Thanks for the .02. One thing it's taught me is right
here

btw, pull your head out long enough to read the title of my post. What I was researching, and found, was the torque spec on the wheel bearing spindle nuts. Not the bearings. Anyone that knows how to read knows this.

so in your world, if the "wheel bearing spindle nuts" do not set bearing clearance, what does?

Torquing the nut sets the bearing endplay.

torquing the nut to 50# will probably set bearing 'preload'
some bearings, seems to be the ones in an oilbath, run preloaded.
ours in grease run loose, cold.
