    One more thought.. There is generally no reason for a left hand thread if nut is normally castled and cotter pinned on... So I would think it would be right hand....

          oh, yep you did. the top of the nut has a ring you bend into a notch.
          i get your point about it not being reverse if its locked in. i was just thinking due to the rotation of the wheel it may be a safety thing ?? better to ask now then to break it and have to ask how to fix it later.

          I'm going to take another shot at it today. nice weather out so i may as well take advantage of it right. good excuse to go out and play with my tools and or shop. we got my step mom ( the first one and our favorite) coming over later for easter dinner and stuff planed for the kids, so i need an excuse to get out and play.

            what day is it again ??

            oops!!! i just went and woke up the wife so she could get the easter baskets ready for the kids, DUUUUUU its not till tomorrow.
            needless to say the wife did not appreciate the early wake up call just to tell me its tomorrow.
            on the bright side, i still have an excuse to get out of the house. so now i can get away before she finishes waking up and starts her true attack for the wake up call.

            well I'm off to play so have a great day all and I'll keep ya posted on the nut problem. that didn't sound right.

                Can you get a new nut? Maybe it's time to crack the nut and replace it. Drill a small hole parallel to the spindle and crack it with a chisel . . . Click image for larger version

                  I know on my Honda one side of the car is reverse tread so that in any case things are loose the nut wont spin off driving down the road.

                    Broken wire # 34 aead 200le

                    Hi there.... For some reason I cannot post a new thread? Yes, I'm logged in, but heck... I'm brain dead or what, ha!

                    Okay, help... I have a broken wire marked number 34 from the negative terminal of the ignition coil, and the drawing shows that it goes to the power weld switch. Should be easy eh... not on your life it is... I cannot see where this wire has come off from, nor is there a terminal that has lost a wire, despite the wire end having the remains of a terminal attached.

                    SYMPTOM: For some reason, when the switch S1 is moved from the weld to power, the move kills the engine. Does this number 34 wire have a baring on this function?

                    Help would be appreciated. email g6ypk@yahoo.com
                    Kind regards
                    Tony

                        Most half shafts are splined to the axle bearing so the nuts are captive and thus do not require left hand threads. Where as on vehicles without splines the left hand nuts are to prevent it from backing off, as with non driven wheels.

                        Peace,
                        Paul

                            not a bad idea. I know Honda recommends that you do not reuse the axle nut, and they sound like they they are retained in a similar fashion to yours.

                                There are a lot of articles out on this subject. I've looked at quite a few
                                of them myself, but I didn't find one that did it just the way I wanted, and
                                from the many different designs, it looks like a lot of people have their
                                own idea of just what it should do, and how it should be built.
                                One idea I found useful was a way to attach the leadscrew mounts to
                                the ends of the lathe. This came from J.R. Bentley's impressive web site.
