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.

      Thanks for all the replies, we just ended up driving home (Duluth). Sorry I wasn't very specific on dates - we went up yesterday. Tried calling Pike Bay to no avail.    Hit the edge of a small reef and fished the rocks, transition, and sand. Two very small walleye were all we connected with.   Would have been nice to stay for the night bite, but got up early and did some trout fishing in the Duluth area this morning.   Tight lines.

      Smoked 8  up this weekend and really better than I thought they would be.  fillet fish leave skin on for brine 1/2 cup noniodine salt 1 cup sugar 1 qt water brine overnight rinse, pat dry and let sit out for an hour or so.  sprinkle with a seasoning if you like. I did lemon pepper on a couple and seafood magic on a couple.  have smoker heated to 200 put in smoked with a little cherry wood smoke 1 hour and done.  should be about 155 degrees internal.  nom nom nom ! ! !

      I have a BIL that lives south of there a bit. He says carnelian has lots of springs in it and wouldn't drive out there for no amount of money.

      Out on the north end. 8", 15" and a 24" over night. I've lost about 8 so far off rattles. Not sure if I'm not getting a good hookset or what. I've tried horsing them in and babying... headshakes are dislodging the hooks.   any advise? I'd have 12 on the board had I not missed any!
