I got new nuts to replace the damaged ones. Once you put in the outer bearing the smaller of the two washers go on first. Then proceed to torque the first nut to 50 ft lbs. Spin the rotor around a few times then back off the nut 1/4 turn.

Then the big washer goes on along with the outer nut. Torque that nut to 50 ft. lbs. Now bend the washer OUT over the nut.

At this point I started pumping the grease into my newly installed zerk fitting. Then spun it a few times. Then put some more in. I did this until it started coming out. Then I shoved in more grease on the outside. Obviously under normal circumstances you would never need this much. This is purely an effort to keep water out of the bearings.

Then this little guy goes on along with this clip. To get it on you normally have to pry the axle in from the back.
