FW: Non- drive wheel bearings.
When tightening, you should proceed slowly while spinning the drum or
whatever, until the nut is snug. Then back off one notch until you can fit
the cotter pin in the first slot above the hole.

Assuming you are talking of the rear wheel drums, you take off the grease
cap with a pair of channel locks or something similar. Should be a big nut
in there that is on there relatively loose. Take that off and the drum
should pull off. I can't remember, but there is probably a cotter pin
holding the nut in place you'll have to remove and replace with a new one.
Keep in mind, do NOT crank the nut down when you put it all back together.
