That sounds normal for the birfield...

As far as tightening goes, I do it by feel, but a good way I have heard it described is to tighten the inner nut hard to set the bearings and squish the. Grease around, turn the hub a few times, loosen and tighten again the same way, then on the last final tightening step, only tighten that inn nut as hard as you can with your hands on the hub socket... No wrench.

Looser is better than tighter.
