Iam not having much luck with this fix. So far the outer bearing has failed twice on me within 40 miles or less. First time I know it was too lose rotor was very close to the caliper the second time I figure it must have been to tight? I thought the hub spun freely enough by hand? Any ideas what else I might be doing wrong?

You could have a bent axle or housing causing the issue although being either to lose or tight can cause the failure as well, When setting the load on the bearing remember that when it heats up it expends slightly so a too tight bearing become super tight and fails that much quicker.

The Axel and housing should be fine the original problem was the parking break so I thought while I was there. I read somewhere that 50 foot pounds on the hub housing nut should be about right for the load on the bearings does that sound about right.

The main axle hub/bearing nut should never be tightened at all, please referrer to this video for more information
