Front Hub HOTT

Im having a problem with my front drivers side hub. I recently replaced both inner and outer wheel bearings. Filled with grease and everything, The hub seemed fine, so i didnt pay attention to it. But now it gets hot to touch the chrome piece on the end of the hub, I have manual hubs. Im thinking the locknut could be to tight. If you jack up the front end then try spinning the wheel it goes between a 1/2-3/4 spin then stops. any suggestions would be great

Inner nut gets 50 lbs (while spinning the hub) then back off a quarter turn. Outer lock nut gets 180 ft/lbs.

Jack it up, pull the tire and caliper off, and try spinning it again. If it still feels tight then yes, you have the preload to tight. I wouldn't drive it much till you fix it. I've seen some pretty bad failures from to tight of bearing preload.

If you don't have a torque wrench, you really should be to take the inner nut just barely over finger tight. As soon as all the slack is taken out of the bearings, it's tight enough.

Brakes to tight also, would cause less roll. Remove caliper for testing.
