Driven Nuts !

Post by Robdavies » Thu Sep 05, 2019 3:42 pm

Hello,
Regarding the Daimler 15, 1937.
Just a quickie, does the near side/portside rear axel nut,11/16 unfasten clockwise or anti clockwise.
The thread is very rusted and slightly damaged so its hard to tell, but it might undo the "wrong way" due to wheel rotation.
Better to know before heaving on it the wrong way.
Cheers to all, Rob.

Well, after a great deal of cleaning and checking I can tell you that the near side 11/16 axel bolt on a Daimler 15 unscrews anti clockwise in the normal way.

I assume that it has a split pin to lock the nuts. I had a nut on a spare axle which would not budge. Usual soaking for days, heat etc. In the end I drilled parallel to the thread and then split it. Replacement castellated nuts are readily available/
