Remove the castle nuts and clean the threads with a wire brush and apply a rust inhibiting lubricant
Ensure both hubs are installed correctly, flush to physical stop on the axle, Install, Tighten then torque both castle nuts to 145 ft-lbs (according to my service manual)
Install cotter pins
***If either cotter pin can't be inserted, tighten the castle nut further until a hole is aligned and the cotter pin can be inserted.
