Re: Front wheel bearings torque spec
Valvoline does as well. Probably about the same temp rating, not red, just boring gray. About $4-5, which is why I like it so much. Screw all the synthetic stuff everywhere else, just too much $$ to be sinking into engine/trans/tcase/axles when I replace those fluids so regularly. But the grease, as you say Muddy, goes a long way for front steering and hubs, definitely worth it.
John, I also just noticed this comment:
"One thing that I should have done was replace the half-rounded lock washer. It doesn't look too good"
My lock "washer" which goes between the two lock "nuts", has holes in it, of course, that align with the inner lock nut dowel pin. now, my washer also has a little ear to align with the slot in the spindle, and appears to be made "rounded" on the edge on one side only all the way around the washer. Is that what you are referring to? Or maybe the owner before you did not have these pieces adjusted right?
