Been moving along on my build. I bought this crank here.Budget Crank
Got the whole motor put together with CDI etc. I tried using this nut and it didn't work.
I was told the crank thread was right hand so bought this nutty .
When I had used the reverse i lightly buggered up the threads. Just by trying to put it on my hand. Then I tried to thread on the new proper nut and decided to start 1-2 threads and clean them up by cranking the nut on with a wrench...
I KNOW. This isn't my first nut. Anyways, it messed up the new nut and threads. I bought a thread file, fixed the thread and today I was able to hand thread the nut onto the threads maybe 1-4 threads. Then it got tight and I decided to use my little impact to get it on. I figure it would "clean up" the nut.
WRONG. It was a gamble I know but it got jammed and DESTROYED my crank shaft. I've stepped off the edge of the bridge, and am now debating if I order a new nut and use what thread is left. Will I have enough thread???
I've dealt with thousands of nuts and bolts. The damn work frustration pushed me to force this and was the wronggggg nut to mess with.
