Have to replace a hub. How?

How do I torque the center nut on the hub? Do I snug it back off and snug again and give it a quarter turn? This is the 3rd hub replacement on my 02 gt 80k the first hub was overtightened and was replaced 6 month ago and now the other side is humming louder than my woman can. what's the correct way to do this beside getting rid of the woman. I only gotten 10k outta the first one and is I can save it from any future damages that will be great. I have the whole hub assay with the bearing already in it. And parts dealer said I don't need to add any additional greese to to.

I always just put the center nut on hand tight. All it has to do is prevent side to side movement. If its tight the bearing is going to fail. Hand tight, then put in the carter pin.

Glad to hear it worked out for ya. Nothing more annoying than parts failing prematurely.
