How Much Torque Required When Tightening Attachment Nuts on 12 x 2, 7k Replacement Brake Assemblies


When installing complete replacement 12x2 brake assemblies on a Dexter 7000 axle, what do I torque the 5 attachment nuts to?


Expert Reply:

I spoke with my contact at Dexter and she informed me that you will need to tighten the attachment nuts to 30-35 ft-lb when installing 12 inch Electric Brake Assembly, part # 23-180, on your Dexter 7000 lb axles.

I have attached a link below to a video of a similar brake hub being installed on a trailer that you might want to check out.
