Personally, I think he will be back!

Yup, God is much more forgiving than a bus.

Ain't it the truth!
A man much wiser than I once told me "If God wanted to getcha, you'd already be GOT!"

Now, do I even want to ask Dallas what an "impacted wench" is?   Huh Huh

I had an impacted tooth once that was a pain..........  Huh Huh Huh

Stud pilot wheel fastening systems have opposite threads on one side of the bus. These are the ones with chamfered front nuts like your car, and the two piece fasteners at the rear that fasten each dual wheel one at a time.

Hub pilot, with the built-in "washer", turn the "proper" way all the way around.

Unless, as has been noted, a previous owner has done something stupid with non-matching bits and pieces...

happy coaching!

But then to mix it up a bit more...

NJT and some other properties spec'd a nut system that used a nut with built in washer on every other lug on the wheel, while the ones in between were standard nuts. Under the washer, the nut was still chamfered also, and was a reverse thread on the drivers side.

I wasn't aware of that little fact until a couple of years ago at Timmonsville when I noticed Dave in Wilmingtons front wheels had both chamfered and washered stud piloted wheels.

I made an idiot out of myself with concern about the mounting and torque.... of course it's not difficult for me to be an idiot!

Dallas,

You can be justifiably proud of your "humility". Grin Huh

Thanks for the chuckle,

DOT takes a dim view of mixed fasteners these days in many jurisdictions.

Mixing chamfered stud nuts with the clamping hub pilot style was done by some, but after DOT started putting them OOS, better to fit in than to keep getting buses sidelined.

Right or wrong, Busnuts don't want to attract that kind of attention!

happy coaching!
