wheel bearing installation on trailer...
The family and I are in the process of rebuilding my father in laws boat and trailer. Basically it has been sitting for 13 years and we are just trying to get it up to snuff. I set the wife up to do some fiberglass patching and I have started on the trailer.
Anyway, all the wheel bearings were in order as well as tires and wheels. When installing the wheel bearings how much do you torque the hub nut on initial installation?
I know you are supposed to torque it to seat the bearings and then back off until there is minimal drag. I have done this before with success just going by feel but I just read an article somewhere (been trying to search for it again) where it said the initial torque value to seat bearings seemed outrageous.
