Wheel Hub Nuts
Just finished the bearings and seals on my Montgomery Wards hay/sheep wagon. I'm now ready to mount the tires on the hubs. Original wheel nuts were in, probably, 80 years and didn't come out too easy. What do I use on the nuts, never seize, lock tight or nothing? Probably be another 80 years before it see's any maintenance. Just thinking of the next owner. Thanks, Gary.

Re: Wheel Hub Nuts
If it's wheel lug nuts you're referring to, once the threads are thoroughly cleaned, a few drops of light oil (motor oil is just fine) on the threads should suffice. Don't think you'd ever want to use Loc-tight on a lug nut, particularly on the wheels of a slow moving wagon.
