Front Wheel Bearing Tightening

Can someone point me at the service procedure for tightening the front wheel bearings on my 37 115c?

I can't find it in the service manual and the nut configuration is different than my 54.

Thanks!

Nevermind, I found buried in a service letter.

Tighten nut until tight, back off half turn. Add lock ring and jam nut

That is the way I did it on my 1089. It was also missing the cotter pins. I guess the last person who was there thought the lock nut was good enough.

Enjoying the posts describing your work and progress. There is a Canadian poster on You Tube who is expert in Jaguars. Richard - Middle Name - Last Name, but I forget. I'll send it to you when I get it. You may be interested in watching some of what he does, especially the engine work.

Thanks John, that would be interesting to see. I have watched a lot of Jag videos online, especially in regard to the SU Carbs.

I do find it interesting how scant the pre-war Packard Service Manuals are. I used to think the Post-War ones were as well, but those are encyclopedias compared to the Pre-War ones, which Cliff-Note versions in comparison.

I've had better luck finding stuff in 3rd party documentation. (aka Motor's manual, etc).

Double check the bearing tightness after driving it a bit. Both sides on my 115c needed another tightening after about 30 miles. Minor, but significant enough.
