    Rear hub nut

    Anyone replaced the castellated nut on the rear hub with a nylock type. If so what's the thread size.

    Also, I've got 2 torque settings written down, 95 ftlb and 140 ftlb. Which one is spec

    Regards

    Is it Jag rear end? If so, ensure you use the correct castellated nut. These have an insert inside which locks the thread. If I remember correctly you need about 270Nm torque when tightening. The nuts are about £20 each and you should only use them once!
