Rear Axle ft pounds Specs


Post by Mickey Yak » Mon Jun 14, 2010 4:17 pm

Working on my 50 pan in a 58 frame and need help. The rear wheel has the newer star hub and custom axel. When I put it back on I cranked the inside nut to 45 LB. The wheel shifted after a ride or two. Anyone know the ft pounds to put on these new style star hubs? Someone told me 120
Thanks for all the great advice

Normal torque is 45-50 ft lb.If your wheel is shifting you need to look for other problems.
