60 ft-lbs is the correct torque per Ford specs.
"Tighten the hub nut, rotating the rear hub occasionally while tightening. Tighten to 60 ft-lbs.
Adjust hub nuts as follows:
For new bearings, ratchet back five teeth or notches (1/8 turn) on the hub nut. Five notches must be felt during this operation in order to have performed it correctly.
For used bearings, ratchet back seven teeth or notches (1/6 turn) on the hub nut. Seven notches must be felt during this operation to have performed it correctly."

Perfect thank you, I figured it would be something a bit different to tighten. Thanks again
