Dana 44 Bearing tool

When repacking the bearings on a Dana 44, can you flip the spindle nut socket to remove and seat the inner bearings? Would doing it this way damage the bearings and races? I've heard that Ford makes a special tool for this. Any ideas and/or input welcomed.
Thanks,
Sackett

Sackett, My manuals say to seat the inner bearing, torque the nut to 50 ft lbs. Then back off the nut to 40 lbs and align that fun washer w/the tab.
Good Luck-

Broncrick,
Thanks for the info. What do you use to seat the inner bearing before you put on the outer bearing and torque it down?
Thanks,
Sack

Re: Dana 44 Bearing tool

Sack, just as I said. You assemble the all the bearings with only one nut in the hub. Then you torque it down, back it off put in the washer, then the other nut. I also think they tell you to rotate the assy as you torque it down (to assure it torques/seats evenly). Email if you need more, when I get home, soon, I can give you exacts.

Re: Dana 44 Bearing tool

Broncrick,
My mistake for not being more descriptive. I believe you are talking about auto locking hubs and I'm asking about manual hubs on an 86. I was able to locate the info I was looking for last night. In the Haynes manual it references a tool that is used to seat the inner bearing. I was just hoping to avoid having to buy this seating tool and a bearing puller. I figured someone might have a work around.
Thanks anyways,
Sack

Sack, my info came from my Ford Service Manual. Even though my Bronco is a 69 (w/manual Warn hubs), the detaisl should all be the same. They said nothing about a 'special' tool. I can check tonight if you wish.

Texas

I'm in Austin. There is a club here called the Austin Four Wheelers. http://www.austinfourwheelers.org/
It's a pretty large group. I saw one of their meetings a couple of months ago and the rigs were impressive.
Where are you from?
