Front wheel berring lock nut torq ft/lbs?

I had to replace the front wheel berring on the pass side of my work van yesterday... what I don't know is how tight the castle nut should be when it's re-installed... I snugged it down, but I'm guessing there should be some pre-load on the berrings, I just don't know how much. What's the ft/lbs it calls for?

99 E350 per ford technical resource center

Install the spindle nut.

NOTE: The brake disc and hub should be rotated while adjusting wheel bearing end play.

Tighten the spindle nut. 30ft/lbs

Loosen the spindle nut two turns.

Tighten the spindle nut while rotating the brake disc counterclockwise. 17-24 ft/lbs

Loosen the spindle nut. 175 degrees

Tighten the spindle nut. 17in/lbs

Install the following components:
Install the retainer nut.
Install a new cotter pin.
Install the hub grease cap.

Install the disc brake caliper anchor plate. For additional information, refer to Section 206-03.
Install the wheel and tire assembly. For additional information, refer to Section 204-04.

or just torque it to the original 30 ft/pounds while rotating
then back it off, spin it once
then snug it hand tight and reinstall your retainer (thats what id do)

Hey man... thanks for the info, exactly what I was looking for. And nice to know that's basicly what I did... tighten it up while turning it, back it off, snug it up, new cotter pin, and put it back together... drives so much nicer now! There were chunks missing from the rollers of the berrings I took out, I don't know how it was even still rolling, let alone driveable. Rumble, and slightly sloppy sterring was the only symtoms.

i had a hub let go in my old silverado one morning on my way to work. started grinding something aweful, when i jacked it up the whole wheel went "thunk" to the side. im pretty sure the caliper was the only thing that kept me from rollin in on 3 wheels. i wish everyone still used actual wheel bearings, makes things alot simpler and more cost effective.
