Initially tighten the ring until it is tighter than when running. That seats the bearings against the axle face and also the adjusting ring. Then loosen the ring until a rattle like noise is heard when the tyre is hit inward at the top. Doesn't take much hit force to do it. That detects slack which you may not feel. Tighten until the rattle doesn't happen but not past the point where the wheel begins to become harder to turn. The factory method makes the bearings much tighter than that. With factory method if the seal vary in their grab at the axle then the tension balance method results in a tighter bearing setting if seal is slack and a looser setting if seal is gripping a bit. Small effect though. But bearing setting is small amounts indeed. If fitting a new seal then the drag of that is included in the Factory method, not an issue with this alternate way. Yes, you could use a dial gauge but vibes might alter the reading you can detect. There are a lot of vehicles around with slack bearings which get hammered over corrugations and destroyed and tight ones which destroy themselves through heat generated at the bearing faces. It is just what I do. Never had to replace any bearing on any vehicle I have owned or serviced.
