left handed threads on tranny mainshaft


Post by doc308 » Wed Jul 09, 2008 2:16 am

I know that the clutch hub nut has left-handed threads. Does the large nut which holds the tranny sprocket to the mainshaft also have left-handed threads?

the clutch hub is left handed thread and the other side (ball bearing side) is right handed thread.
