Install the inner thrust washer first, then the inner nut. A hammer and chisel can be used for adjustment, as shown, but for a better job, try to get the proper wrench. Adjust the inner nut tightly to seat the bearings, then back off a quarter turn. Install the outer washer and then the outer nut and torque it down.
