    Default Dauphine Rear Hubs Torque Setting

    I'm doing the pre-RWC checks & noticed I haven't pinned the rear hubs.

    Can someone tell me what the setting should be?

    I'm used to "real tight" then back off to the nearest hole for the cotter pin.

    Thanks Simon

    That surprises me.

    VW are 217lb/ft but the nut is 36mm up to 42 on Kombi's

    Actually, those numbers are logical. I forgot the Dauph's hub nut is 30mm

    So! Liquid paper to mark the hole for the cotter pin & a rubber tube to protect the threads on the wheel stud.

    My torque spanner only went up to 120 ft/lbs. I weigh 80kg so I stood on the socket arm a foot out from the pivot point. Then just a tweak more to get the pin in.

    Hi
    You should not tighten then back off to the nearest hole. You should just try to get to a split pin hole lineup within the torque range.

    Yes, I get mine up to the middle-upper part of the range on the big torque wrench and then heave it along to the next split pin hole with a big breaker bar. It's reasonably tight then..... Before that, it was just as tight as I could get it, not a good method judging by loose and worn splines on old 4CVs back in the $100 student car days!
