Last year I replaced the axle on my 1750 with a LSD diff from a later car (don't know what year). I kept the original wheel nuts for the R/H side as the threads go the same way, and I fitted some second hand nuts on the L/S, now I have one wheel on the car with an anti-clockwise thread, should confuse the tyre fitters!

The problem is that I found that the some of the nuts on both sides of the axle are really tight, they go on, but get really hot, and the threads in the nuts are getting ripped up.

The people I bought the axle from told me that it had previously been "restored" could someone have fitted some bolts with a slightly different thread - like AF? I can't believe they would fit in the holes through the flange on the drive shaft.

Did AR change the thread pitch of the wheel studs at any point?

I can't think of any other explaination.

You can remove the studs from the front hub and replace them with used RH ones from another 1750 or from any 2L. They press out - I'd not use a hammer. Same for the rear hub.
