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!

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
