Dial indicator set-up question.

I have always used the Haynes method to set wheel play on bearing repacks, but have taken the plunge and bought a dial indicator from the Snap-on man. Would appreciate any wise counsel for best place to connect for measuring (unit has clamp) and any other pro-tips for measuring end-play. Haven't checked my books yet, but if any body knows spec for 400E and 240D, it would be much appreciated.

Did a search and only found a couple of posts on the subject with no specifics as to set up. I have seen this done once, but don't remember the specifics and didn't want to begin process and possibly hit a snag on set-up in the middle the job.

All help appreciated.
