Default Torque Specs for Rear Wheel Hub Mounting Bolts

Hello:
As I remount a new rear wheel hub onto the left rear bracket I was going to use antiseize on the bolts. Is this OK? Also, what are the torque specs for these bolts so I tighten them properly-for after all, they do hold the wheels on. Thank you for all your help to a newbie, I do appreciate it.

If you use anti-seize compound the torque will no longer be valid, the compound will act as as lubricant. If you want to use it on the bolt portion OK but not on the thread portion the nut will contact.

Default How Does Antiseize Affect Torque Values?

Hello:
I ended up having some antiseize already on the bolts so when I torque them to the required value ( I wiped off what I could ) I really am tightening them to a higher value due to the lubrication effect, right? Correct me if I am wrong please.

Michael

Torque is used to obtain a desired clamp up force, the force of the bolt pulling the parts together.

Unless noted in the manual, etc, bolts are installed without lube.

Antiseize compound being a lube will increase the amount of clamp up force.

In theory when using antiseize the torque value should be reduced by 2/3 to 3/4.

If you removed as much of the antiseize as possible would not be concerned in this case.

However if doing something like head bolts (often the manual states to dip the complete bolt in oil) or a nut that preloads a bearing then would concerned as the clamp up force will be increased.
