Torque Rating For Hub Castle Nut

Question:

My church has a 2005 dual axle trailer manufactured by Continental with 15 inch wheels. In the very near future I plan to remove and replace the wheel bearings and would like to know the torque that should be applied to the castle nut.

asked by: Steve


Expert Reply:

There is no specific torque rating for the castle nut that holds your hub in place. We recommend tightening the castle nut down until it stops, and then backing it off to the next notch whee the tang washer will fit into the castle nut. Over tightening the nut can lead to the spindles and bearings overheating, which can damage them.

We have a video that outlines the proper way to remove and install a trailer hub, to view the video, click on the provided link.
