hub ?

I just got a new rear axle hub for my truck, thanks to VIRGILH. I'm going to swap out this one with my old one. I'm going to buy a new brake drum, wheel studs, bearings and seals for my hub. My question is, since I havent taken one of these apart before, do the wheel studs hold the brake drum to the hub, or do you put the wheel studs on the hub then put the brake drum on? And one more thing, is the inner bearing pressed into the hub? I know you put the outer one on after you put the hub on, but if the inner bearing is pressed in, I may as well get my wheel studs pressed in at the same time I get the bearings pressed in.

Alright, I feel dumb for asking that question because as soon as I got the brake drum I figured it out. Bleh... Well anyway, I got it all together and I'm just curious if the brake drum should have a little play against the hub when the wheel studs are tightened down. Or should the hub and brake drum be completely tight against eachother?

I'd think they would need to be as tight as possible. There was no play or gap between the drums and hubs when I stripped apart my rear d60.

I've got the wheel studs as tight as I can get them. Maybe they need some more torque on them?
