Over tightening Spartan aluminum wheel hubs

Please don"t do what I just did, I snapped one of the inter stud blots on the front tire hub by over tightening the "spartan chrome" nut that goes over the
stainless steel large hub. While I was checking the oil levels on the front axle tires I over tighten the hub bolt and snapped one of the two nuts that hold the
bracket to the wheel for the stainless steel hub for mounting.. didn't seem like I was tightening it that hard

Hi Dukie

Sorry to hear about that mistake. Hopefully it may keep someone else from doing the same thing. Thanks.
