bolts on wheel house

3 posts in this topic

i have a 16' wheel house and theres one bolt that holds the wheel assembly on its bolted through a piece of tubing that holds my leaf spring in place then bolted through the frame and the bolt has 2 nuts on it but it still seems to come loose easily then my wheels tip in but when there tight the house sits fine so i was thinking either weld the nuts together and maybe to the frame? of drill out the bolt and nut and put a pin through it? any help on how to fix this is greatly appreciated

Normally when you have double nuts their purpose is to lock each other without the first having to be tightened down. If vibration is causing them to loosen up, I would recommend remove both nuts, clean thoroughly (I would use a brake-cleaner product), then reinstall both nuts in their proper position using blue thread locker on the threads of the bolt. Don't use the red thread locker!

      Yeah, but this one is packed with useful information and tips, and not everyone who browses the site today saw this in 2015. It's really a great thread, and that's why I bumped it.    Wouldn't it be more sensible and more useful to the members of the site to simply edit the title and remove the "2015"?   ***How about it, mods? Rejuvinate this thread with a new title!***

      Has anyone tried out the polar bird hub houses? The floor looks like a neat concept I wonder how well it works. Looking for a small 2 man hub so I don't have to drag my huge heavy 6 man thermal hub when I go alone.

      I don't care if dnr checks me multiple times a day or I have to prove that I am not doing anything wrong. That is how they catch the guys who are doing stuff wrong. I am always legal so What do I care I have been checked what like 5-6 times in my life so far even if every time they were a bad_boy ( they were not ) who cares I have to deal with them 10-15 mins out of my day? Think about how many pricks they have to deal with every day.
