Does the lock nut need to go snug against the first nut? I torqued the first nut to 450 ft-lbs, with the second nut one thread engaged, and then torqued the second nut to 450 ft-lbs. Both sides axle nuts are about 1/2 from being up against the the first. Is this installed correct?

I think you have it!

However I don't see how you ever got the fix-it nut to ever torque to 450 ft lbs. Must be better than the ones I used to get years ago. They would come apart before you ever got close to 450 fp.

If the threads didn't slip on the axle the locking ring nut would split if you tightened them too tight.

You have got to keep an eye on the axle nuts in the future though because they will need re-torquing from time to time or you will be right back in the same predicament as you were with a loose axle nut and loose hub.
