F 550 rear hub torque specs?

I have a F-550 that I need to pull the rear hub off and change the seal. I seen it has the nut that you tighten to spec and back off so many notches. Could someone give me the tightening specs for this truck. Axle code is K8 if you need it. I think it is the Dana 135 but some have said that they changed in the later years to the Dana 110. Thanks JJ

Are you saying that the bearing nut is 70 ft lbs and the bolts for the axle is 77 ft lbs? JJ

I need the specs on the big hub nut. It is a single nut that has the notches when tightening. On the F 350 it was something like tighten to 65ftlbs then back off like 4-7 clicks or something like that. The torque on the 8 bolts would be handy also. JJ

Hardline,
I was searching for the specs on the axle nut on my motor home, F53 chassis, which has the same axle as your f550, I believe its the Dana 135, what did you finally come up with on the torque and how many clicks back.
Also do you know whats the best way to get oil back into the hub, Ive heard that I need to jack up the other side so the oil runs into the hub, have you heard that?

Scott
