Torgue the bearing to 30-40 ft lbs,to seat the bearing, then back it out. Now tighten it by hand just enough to hold the bearing in place. Spin the wheel by hand as you snug it back up. You don't want to over-tighten it, this would cause friction, making it harder for the wheel to spin. Not too loose either though. Just enough so there's no "play" when you try to wiggle the wheel. Now you're ready to put the cotter pin back. Somebody had posted an answer with an extremely high torgue spec. If you already took that advice, you probably ruined you're bearing by now.
