80? That's about two groans and a fart by my calculations.
And no follow through
I did think 80 was a little low but then again, it’s just to lock in the taper and that’ll do must the heavy lifting
I’ve recently bought a new pair of front stub axles for my Dolomite, SprintSpeeds Ford pattern pair to be precise.
Have you bought the alli front hubs as well as the stub axle ? what wheels are you fitting
So I’ve had to remove the old ones, looked in the workshop manual and it says to loosen the nut in the back and press out. easy enough, had my local garage press them out, didn’t half fire out of the upright
Now that I’m at this stage, does anyone know what torque that nut is meant to be at? The manual just says to tighten it, unless I’ve missed a section somewhere. Am I just meant to tighten till I can’t anymore?
Anybody have any experience?
Never mind, just reread the workshop manual and there’s a torque wrench setting page I entirely missed. Looks to be 80lbft of torque. I’ll leave this up for anyone else’s information
Yeah, I’ve cheaped out on the new Alloy hubs and bought some second hand iron ones. I’ll probably upgrade to the alloy ones eventually but couldn’t afford them as of this moment, for everything it was around £250 for all the bits but old iron ones were around £90
