Re: Replace Axle Rod

Oops... Too much force here could wreck the wheel bearings due to too much side load on them. I typically tighten until I feel the rotating tire just gets a little stiff. Not very tight! That's the reason for a castle nut and no torque on the nut. You should be able to buy some aluminum rod stock at the hardware store and cut the thread with a Die.

I over tightened my axle castle nut and snapped the end off the rod. What’s the easiest and fastest recommendation for a replacement?
