Full Version: Lug nut issue on rear axle

Looks like a prior owner forced a lug nut to thread all the way home despite it not really wanting to fit.

Time to take a tap/die set to the hub and then make sure I have a clean/good lug? Assume so but wanted to double check (please).

Thanks!

Try a thread chaser first. They help to reform the existing thread rather than cut new.

Thanks Mark.

Do the lug threads give up first or the hub?

M14x1.5 tap and die cleaned time all up.
