It would be very hard to overtighten hub bearings.  The symptoms would be bearings that get hot.  They won't make noise.

Noise from a hub is almost always brakes or something rubbing.

I would also check prop uj's as can't see anything on hubs would make it squeal only when pulling uphill. 

Prop uj will squel when loaded.

First off, introduce your novice friend to the forum and let him/her ask their own questions.  They will learn far more then than  receiving second hand  comments.

Regarding the OP post, I will not comment.
