sounds like the same locking nut on a d44 or d60. if its a d60 rear im might be the same hub tool as the front.
actuly i think the d60 rear uses a 2 9/16 nut.

what axel is it

to turn the nut you need the tool with the 4 prongs. the front is just a regulor nut (2wd) not sure on what axle it is.

its disk brake , e brake is on the housing, uses the rotor as the "drum"

8 wheel suds, full floating


i have the tool, im just not sure how to adjust the wheel bearings on these

I set the floater hubs by tightening the nut and spinning the hub at the same time, this helps seat the bearings nicely, I will tighten the nut up untill I have maybe 30-50 ft/lbs then I will back the nut off and retighten untill it is just snugged up, maybe 20 ft/lbs and spin the hub a couple times and check the snug fit

if its the same as on the front axles like the d44 and d60, you will have 2 "nuts" that sandwich over a locking tab washer.

you put the inner most nut on and tighten with the special pronged socket or hammer and chisel until there is drag while spinning the rotor. you want it tight enough to not spin freely and to take some effort, but not need a breaker bar to rotate. you then back the nut off 1/8 to 1/4 turn.

slide on locking tab washer, then put outer nut on and tighten to 30ft/lbs iirc. fold tab over to lock nut in place. if no tabs line up, adjust outer nut tighter or looser to line up.

do not back off so far to line up locking tab that it no longer has a decent pressure against the lock tab washer and inner nut.


EDIT: yes, mikey is correct on how to tighten the inner nut.

the sterling full floater axles use a single funny spring loaded ratcheting nut. No double locking nuts.
