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!

Use lock nuts.

          Probably fishing Blue Lake ... or green lake, I have caught my biggest crappies around Opening weekend.  Might give a cast or three for some walleyes but love to fish Bass now, super fun catching those big ones!!   I am mostly a catch n release guy but like a good pan fish meal and looking at getting a smoker!!  Bass ... always catch n release, especially in our metro lakes to keep fishing good.  Was shocked how many people were keeping bass in a local small lake last fall!!  Doesn't take long to wipe out a small body of water.  Some fisherman think they have to keep everything they catch!!  most phones have a good camera on them ... take a pic and release for good fishing future.   Again, its OK to have a meal ... just know what, where, and your species of fish and how spawn and body of water applies to the lake size, ect...    Cret

      Thanks, I'm excited about it too. I've fished those lakes and know for a fact that the existing maps are at best incomplete, and occasionally plain wrong. So I'm really looking forward to seeing what the data shows.

      Not sure about KAXE , but WEVE from Virginia comes in. They are so bad, they are almost good! Their tag line was "Not too hard, and not too soft" to which I add "and not too good" If you want to hear schmaltzy drek from the 80's then tune in.

      Very cool project.  I just got back from up there, and I'll be up again on another solo the first week of May.  I'll check back if I decide to enter near Ely.

      Eyeguy - what size weight are you using at the Miss?  Are you using a bullet weight and a worm hook to hold your crawler?   Cret
