49 8N.

I worked over the brakes and rear seals. One of the rear hubs is a replacement. On that side it goes far enough on that the nut bottoms out on the axle splines and doesn't torque the hub down enough.

I remember reading about this same thing about a year ago on here but it didn't apply to me so I don't remember. Seems to me that someone's advice involved shims.

What to I do? Do I get a washer sized just right that will press on the hub and tighten? Seems to me that option would cause the brake drum to rub the backer plate. Do I somehow shim the splines so the hub sits flush with the axle splines? I thought that someone cut strips to lay in the valleys and shim it (from a pop can or something?). The axle and hub are I good shape so don't see a reason to start replacing things.

If you can, measure the splines on the axle and those inside the hub. You will likely find the hub is worn (softer metal than the axle). HTH

it will either be hub or axle wear.

if you have to run it.. i'd cut shims from pallate strapping banding and shim the splines.

cheap fix.. MAY work.

retorque it every day for a week till it settles in..

it's not the correct fix.. but ok when you are broke or broke down.. etc.

Well, first, this is not a fact:"The axle and hub are I good shape so don't see a reason to start replacing things." If they were you wouldn't have a problem.. When you make shims from hard material such as pallet strap, you need to end up, NOT flush, but with hub extending beyond axle surface or else you will never tighten hub to axle.
