      Posting in General Chat thread.   11/11/2017

      it has been noted that too many Members are posting messages in the General Chat area instead of the correct Forums. Any messages posted in the General Chat area that are not General Chat will be deleted without warning and offenders may recieve warning points if repeated instances are seen from that Member. There are plenty of different Club areas that encompass 99% of Ford related posts, please select and use the correct one. If anyone is not sure of which area to post something then feel free to P/M myself or other Senior Staff for guidance. The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

  1. Escort rear wheel bearings torque setting

    hi there. thank you for the reply
  2. Hi,

    The best thing to do with this is to tighten it up then turn it back one flat.

  3. hi there, just done a drumming rear wheel bearing, i looked on the net and found a site saying the torque setting was 290nm = 213.89 ft lbs!!! anyway, my torque wrench only goes to 230nm. but by the feel of the hub nut, i think even that would be too much. i've done it up to 130nm, the same amount-ish as the wheel nuts. what do you guys think?? to make things worse, i can't find my haynes..lol cheers jake
