Guys - been trying to search, but getting some DB errors and won't allow me to search for the past 2 hours. Need to open new thread as I am stuck!
The brass nut that came with the Ultima 2Ē Belt Drive for the Engine Pulley\Crank Shaft is a little tight when tightening by hand.
Basically it catches the first 3-4 threads with ease, but then become very hard to tighten with my hand.
Crank Shafts threads are fine as when I flip the nut the other way around (hex facing in and rounded end out) the nut holds the threads no probs and I can tighten by hand no probs.
Is this nut a tapered nut so that it holds tight first time? Or is my nut warped\screwed?
Dont want to tighten as I donít want to strip any threads on the crank shaft.
For your reference I am talking about Part# 58-723 HTNUT 0.8750-14-D-S on the assembly diagram located here www.ultimaproducts.com/2InchBeltDrive.pdf
Really need some advise..
