Corey, am I reading correctly that it is now at 40-50 ft/lbs of preload? If this is the case, I would not wait 500 miles before checking. When I did my disk brake conversion up front I was having trouble getting the pre-load correct and recall that at 20 ft lbs. my hubs were too hot to touch after a very short drive. In my situation, both sides of my claw washers were grooved; once I replaced them with new I had no trouble getting the specified pre-load.
