What hub?
It's a '77. It's just a spindle with inner and outer bearings and races.

If you are just replacing the outer tre, then you just need to tighten it down with the supplied castle nut & use a new cotter pin. There is a torque spec somewhere but most people just get it good & tight. The only rule is if you go past the hole too far to get the cotter pin in, don't back it off, tighten it to the next hole to put the pin in


EDIT....No its not pressed in....its a taper fit that is pulled in with the nut

It goes without say that an alignment need to be done but I'll say it anyway...

You will need to get a wheel alignment after all the parts have been replaced

I guess you are calling the knuckle a hub. Your truck doesn't have a hub. That's what the confusion is.
