YJ dana30 hub nut torque?

I going to be taking a look at my front wheel bearings and Have a question about how much you torque the the big hub nut too.The book says 175 but my damned torque wrench only goes to 150. You think 150 will be enough or am I going to [bleep] something up. Thanks

You're going to pull apart the non-rebuildable unitized bearing?

Re: YJ dana30 hub nut torque?

Not exactly, I want to take the hub assembly out and (to my understanding) you have to take off that big hub nut (36mm) then the three 12 point bolts that hold the assemble on. but when you put it back on the book say to torque that big nut to 175 fb. MY torque wrench only goes to 150fb, is that going to be enough?

I would go another 1/12 to 1/6 of a turn just to be sure, that will make it past 150 ft-lbs, but not a ton.

You can do it with the 150 if you have to but make sure that you do it all in one swing. What I mean is when you hear the wrench click just continue about 1/16th more and stop and leave it alone. Don't loosen it a bit thinking that you got it too tight or you won't have any clamping force left. Clean all the mating surfaces between the nut and the hub surface too to get good contact and don't forget the cotter pin! [img]images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]
