I just did the wheel bearings on my 1985 ford f 150 2 wd i need to find out what the torque is for the nut that holds my wheel bearings and brake rotor on thank you very much


  • There is not a torque speck for that.

  1. Just thread the adjuster into the spindle and tighten real good with a ratchet.
  2. Then rotate the wheel forward to seat them bearings real good.
  3. Give it another tighten then back that adjuster nut off 1/8 of a turn.
  4. Then put the nut lock washer on over the adjuster nut and put a cotter pin in the hole.


  • Your lug nuts are torqued at 100ft lbs though.

installation is in reverse,put hub and greased bearings on spindel tighten center nut while turning hub and tighten the nut very tight,the hub will be very hard to turn then start loosening the spindle nut and spinning the hub,holding the top of the hub push in and out if you feel it rocking on the bearings it is to loose tighten the slowly until there is no play put a cotter back in, put the small hubcap back on then using the c clamp and a piece wood put the c clamp over the back of the brake caliper and slide the piece over the piston cup on the inside to protect the piston,tighten the clamp until the piston is colapsed all the way, put brake pads back on put caliper on,put a small amount of grease on the smooth part of the allen bolts not on the threads,tighten the bolts.

DRIVE AXLE TORQUE SPEC FOR 1963 BUG


please be more specific as to what exactly your trying to tighten ?' do you mean the drive shafts ?? if so put some locktight on the threads first ,failing that some contact adhesive will do ,if you mean the big nuts in the middle of the wheels then make sure you have some copper grease on the splined shafts before you start ,then tighten the big nut to about 90 , no torque wrench then tighten with a rachet and using regulation snap on bar a **** on the bar will suffice they do not have to be tightened with a scaffold pole on the end of the bar

Smooth wheel on the timing belt rattles butnut in middle is tight


The timing belt is not on the outside of engine. What you are describing might be the belt tensioner. The bolts you speak of in alternator are the mounting bolts. If the "smooth" wheel is vibrating, then replace the wheel. That is the belt tensioner.

2002 1500 4 x 4 Replacing front wheel bearing hub; can't get to the 3 bolts


to start with, that is not a u-joint cover, it is a cv joint. if this is a chevy. you will have to pull the cv shaft out of the spindel. first loosen the outter tierod nut on the spindel, do not take off completely but just so its on finger tight. get a large hammer and hit the spindel right where the tierod goes through it. a couple of good shots and it should drop out take off nut and move outter tierod aside. now you are gonna do the same thing to the lower ball joint. only when your ready to hit that part of the spindel where the ball joint goes through get a prybar under the upper controll arm and get a budy to push up on it. as long as the shock is still bolted on your in no danger. pull the spindel out towards you from the bottom and you will have enough room to pull the shaft out of spindel to get the nuts. you might have to put ball joint back in without shaft in place to hold spindel still to break those bolts loose. make sure you use new cotter pins on ball joint and tierod nuts

HI I HAVE PUT A/C NEW COMPRESSER ON MY 2002 X TYPE JAG


It should be either on the alternator,power steering pump or the a/c pump.You will see slotted holes in any I have stated.You loosen them and there should also be a long bolt that goes down to another bolt like a "T".after you loosen the slotted bolts up you will tighten that up and it will tighten the belt.If you don't have the long bolt you'll use a pry bar on the part i stated earlier to pry the belt tight and while holding the pry bar tight as with the belt to tighten the bolts up and it should be tight now..If you have any other questions just re post and we'll help you.I hoped this helps.Have a great day..

Broken wheel bolt


These bolts are usually pressed into the hub. If you remove the hub you can usually knock out the broken bolt and buy a new one at an auto parts store and insert it into the hub, When you put the hub back on the wheel and tighten the lug nuts that will pull the new bolt up tight into the hub.

This is usually caused by someone using an powered wrench tightening the wheel nuts too tight. I had this happen to me once and ever since I have insisted that anyone using an air wrench do not use one to tighten the lug nuts. They must use a torque wrench and tighten to manufactures spec.

Good luck and I hope this helps

Wheel studs


normally you can take off the spindel but if you remove brake disk and back plate you should be able to punch out the studs with no problem and than push new one in and press it in by tapping it with hammer on the back and than putting some washers over it and than tightening the lug nuts.
Or if you are comfortable with it remove the whole spindel section and put it on a work bench
