After cleaning/painting everything, when I reinstall the rear hubs do I just put some gear oil on the bearing or do I use grease?? and how much do I tighten the ratchet nut down to??

does anyone know the torque speck for the ratchet nut and what do I put on the bearings after cleaning and before I install them?

i just tighten them until there is no play and then just a bit more and coat the bearings with grease, not pack like front bearings, just enough so they have lube until the oil gets there.
