Right handed threads for the driver side, left handed threads for the passenger side keeps the twisting force always tightening on either side.

I don't think it really matters cause most things aren't that way today.  If it really made a difference it would be different threads on everything made - cars, trucks, trailers, etc.  Everything is standard right threads today I think.  There's always an exception to every rule and people love to bring it up to prove people wrong, so look for that here soon...  ;)

If you really think about it, there isn't a twisting force applied to the lug nuts/studs.  If the nut was just on the axle, then yes.  But even on trailer axles, there is a castle nut to keep it from tightening or loosening.  Perhaps this is a relic from long ago (wagon wheels?) or some engineer wrote a really good thesis on it :D  Y'all know that engineers don't live in the real world, I should know, I've got an engineering degree ;D

But with weed wacker's and flywheels if the shaft stops fast the heavy parts can spin and
take the nut off if not left handed.. This can't happen with a wheel. It does not matter how
fast the wheel stops it can not spin on the hub.

Well I probably ruined my chance for an engineering degree because I changed all the studs to right handed on my grain trailer once, the passenger side wheels never fell off  :D.

I have had a couple of old cars/jeeps with left hand lugs.
The first one was a 46 or 8 CJ2A. I was around 14 and trying to pull the wheels off. I had chiseled off one lug and was starting on another one when my father pointed out that they were left handed.
Hard lessons learned are hard to forget.

That weight leveler ,is actually for pulling engines, you can adjust it so they come out perfectly level.

While you're there and if you don't mind, slice off a chunk of that junkyard and mail it to me. We don't have any such resource around here. There are several auto salvage yards, but nothing general.

Thanks.

Jackpot today... First... I helped the boss fix his zeroturn mower so everything shown here today was free.
Whatever comes into this junkyard means nothing to the owner. He only see $$$ as weigh in junk.
He saves out very little for his self. Back of my Jeep was full. This is what happens when you don't go for a while.
It took me around two hours to get it all separated and put away.

I got today...

Nails.
Screws.
Much electrical stuff.
Gear motors.
rotating air connections.
Nits, bolts.
Washers.
Bushings steel.
Bushings brass.
two tractor headlights.
16" ridgid pipe wrench.
3/4" heavy duty eye bolts.
all thread couplers.
Two new steering boxes.
lots of pulleys.

 

 

 

 


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What the thing on the top. It looks like it would fit in a drill and it has bearings in it. It has a square 1/8" hole
in the other end. I checked to see if it was a clutch. It's not. The bottom two things screwed together is
rotating air connections.

I wonder if that pipe wrench got tossed by accident, mixed in with some miscellaneous.

Those look like bronze bushings, to me. Ever done any metal casting? I've always wanted to but never got the roundtuit to build a furnace.

Wouldn't give 2 cents for the electrical switches and receptacles, but everything else looks handy. What were those heavy eye bolts for?

That ain't a junkyard; it's a salvage depot!
