If you're using a torque wrench on a taper roller hub nut, you're doing them up too tight. Make sure there's nothing on the thread that'll make it snatch then do it up fingertight, til there's no movement. Sometimes it'll mean that it looks odd and like the nut's gone too far as in the pic. It's more abou the nut not being tall enough.
Even my 3/8 bike torque wrench that gets used for torquing down M6 bolts to 6lb/ft into aluminium threads doesnt go down low enough for that.
Need spares,consoles,consumables,hire,training or even a new boat?
