The simplest thing you could do would be to buy my house.  You would then have a nice shop with a pit to work under the bus.  Wink

I'm there. Get you stuff packed. Grin I'm done with this place.....I'm trying to remove a front wheel and the PO must have overtightened the lugs because the Nuts are stripping.


If it wasnt this....it would be something else.

Don't forget the driver and passenger side wheels have opposite handed threades!  Don't over tighten the driver's side by trying to "loosen" them the wrong way.

Nope, he wasn't kidding.  You probably better replace the effected studs too.  Even if they didn't strip, they probably got stretched, at the very least weakened.

Yup,

Lefty Licey and Rooty Tooty!

Or Is that Lefty Righty and Lucey Ti**y, hmmm, maybe not go there.

I have a few.. only $10 each for the lugnuts and $12 for the stud.

One thing for sure... your compressor and impacted wench are working right.

If you want to make your monster remover and installer last a lot longer get yourself a can of air tool oil or Marvel Mystery oil and use it often.
Your subcompact, man-hammer, being low cost will have a real problem in a short time with wear.. the tolerances aren't nearly as critical to the Chinese as they are to us. Combat the wear with lot's of oil.... oil it everytime you move to another wheel and before and after every use.

If you look at your lug studs, you may possibly see an "R" on the passenger side and a "L" on the drivers side.

Not all vehicles use left hand thread on the left, but I can tell you my Prevost does, and it sure sounds like yours does  too Cry

I want to thank you guys from the bottom of my heart. (saying goodbye has always been tough for me...so bare with me) You have all been great. You have laughed when you were suppose to.... cried when you had to.... and got serious when the situation demanded a wise head and a steady hand. I cannot thank you enough for your help...all of you.

So, it is with great regret that I tell you that I will be leaving your midst for a while. You see, when I figured out that Brian was not kidding about the opposite threads tip, I'm afraid I said some things that were very bad. Very, very bad.


I will be leaving now, to crawl on my knees over crushed walnut shells and prostrate myself at the statue in the shrine of the chapel of Our Lady of Perpetual Responsibility and plead for my continuing existence, because I'm pretty sure I just lost my salvation.



Thanks for everything....I will remember all of you with fondness.


Goodbye.


Chazwood.

Well, I'm praying for him right now.  Chaz really knows his GOD stuff so I guess he needs help.

If he said what I think he said...he will be on his knees for quite a while!

At least he asked the question...and Brian was able to point him in the right direction!

My question...I have not looked...on my Scenicruser (GM) I am thinking the threads on both sides go the same way...don't they?

Chazwood, I gotta hand it to you...you had me and Dianne in stitches!  Thanks!

jackhartjr: Only you can tell what threads are on your bus. Unless you are are the original owner you never know who changed what. The only thing I am sure of is that the 4501 rear suspension under my MC-7 Combo had left hand threads on one side. It also had aluminum hubs, which I thought rather uncommon for that age.
