Lug Bolts Left and Right hand Threads
« on: June 08, 2009, 08:28:00 AM »
I just discovered that my 81 sunvalley has Left hand threaded bolt on one side and Right hand threaded bolts on the other side.
Is that common? where can I find replacements?

On trailers that are equipped with bolts (instead of nuts on studs) to hold the wheels on, left and right handed threading is standard. As the wheel spins, the motion keeps the bolts from unscrewing.

Thanks for the info Alex.  Snow, Coleman left that detail out of their manual as well.
I just got off the phone with the Coleman Dealer near me and they down carry the left hand threaded bolts.

Older Jaycos were that way also, at least my '74 was that way.

I think this was common in the old days.  My '65 Scout has "L" printed on the left hand thread nuts.  Any auto parts store should have them or be able to get them for you.

That was old-school thinking. There were some Chryslers in the 1960s that had left-handed lugs on one side too. Eventually, people figured out that it wasn't necessary to do that and pretty much everything is right-handed now.

Hey, old is a state of mind. I'm old when I'm at work. When I'm camping, I'm not.

I used to work in a tire shop. A customer brought in a '60's Dodge for tires. I had to stop one of the FNG's from taking an air gun to the left side tires. I asked the customer if he converted them to right hand, he laughed and said something about me being the only one in the shop old enough to remember that.
