Default Re: the old front wheel bearing trick on L100

hi floridas, pierrot, rb, fdryer and 2LW- appreciate your help. my melodrama in doing this job has been quite educational and entertaining. could be a textbook thread on L series bearing r and r. need your help on some info. yesterday I remounted the knuckle with the new bearing and hub pressed. there are 5 nut and bolt reconnections. only snugged the bolts no torqueing yet. going to borrow or buy a torque wrench . there are 5 fastenings to which I would appreciate your advice on torque specs since I don't want the assembly coming apart on thunder road while eluding coppas . speeds threaten to reach 120+. here are the locations for tomorrows tightenings: 1. nut on steering rod to knuckle. 2. castellated nut on drive axle to hub. 3. lower ball joint nut and bolt. 4. two nut and bolt sets fastening lower strut end to upper part of the knuckle. have already cleaned and put anti seize grease on these threads. surprised there are no cotter pins on the threads of the ball joint and the steering rod end. get a load of this - asked dealer for charge to torque these 5 fasteners. shyster wanted $200. what a swine. hope you didn't hit your head when you fell out of your chair laughing. also fyi- have lined up strut bottom with a scratch line hoping that wheel realignment will not be needed. what are the odds? thanks tons bf
