PostSubject: Lock Nut Help   Thu Jun 26, 2014 10:20 pm

Hello everybody!

I've had a pair of BRT's and some winkler wheels since 2010, and unfortunately one of the nuts has been stripped since then. Because one of the wheels is stuck behind the nut i have never switched the wheels from those trucks ever.

I have finally decided that I should finally get the nut off of the truck after 4 years of it sitting on there, but turning the nut is completely pointless as it just continuously spins.

If anyone has any pointers on how I could possibly get it off that would be greatly appreciated.

Stripped/Stuck Nut:



As you can see the stripped/stuck nut is very damaged, so I would like to get it off.

i would take the other wheel off, slide the axel through the hangar so that the wheel can slide down a little, then use pliers and pull it off. ive had to do this on a set of trucks i have. be careful when youre grabbing onto the axel though so that you dont damage the threads or anything.
