Figure 2-11. Removing Rear Wheel (1972 and Earlier)

When installing wheel, reverse the removal procedure. Important: Clamping faces on drum and wheel hub must be clean so that wheel will be true and tight against brake drum when socket screws are tightened. Securely tighten the five wheel socket screws to 35 ft-lbs torque before tightening the axle nut (3) to 50 ft-lbs. To avoid possibility of wheel working loose and damaging clamping flange, it is important that socket screws be tightened as specified.
