Does each blade turn counter clockwise to be removed?


All that I have seen are right hand threads. What make and model of mower do you have and how many blades?

Are the Cutting blades bolts for a John Deere LT 160 right handed thread or left handed thread?


It is typical to use right handed thread so you would turn them clockwise to install, and counterclockwise to remove. The blade rotates towards the cutting edge which is typically counterclockwise, so to remove the bolt, you unscrew it, with the handle of your wrench pulling towards the back of the blade.. These bolts can be really tight. Pull the spark plug lead or remove the ignition key so you don't get an accidental start. Wear gloves, there are sharp bits.

Does the blades have left hand threads or right hand threads when relacing the blades


The blade bolts have a normal right-handed thread orientation. But remember, when you are installing a blade bolt, the bolt is facing UP from the ground, not DOWN to the ground; hence the confusion.

Motion drive belt shredded. what direction do I turn the pulley bolt on the bottom of the crankshaft under the engine?


It is normally threaded, which is to say it has right hand threads. So you will need to turn left to loosen. You can take a block of wood to brace the blade or use vice grip pliers to block the blade. The blade needs to be immobilized to loosen the bolt.

If this is really helpful for you, please rate four thumbs up.

On a 10 inch power compound miter saw, I need to replace the blade. Does the blade bolt have left handed threads? Thanks


Place a finger nail in the thread near the end ot the shaft. If when rotated CW it comes off the shaft it is a left hand thread. My 10" Craftsman radial saw has a left hand thread on the blade shaft.

If you have more questions or need additional help please reply below and I will get back to you. HTH & Good Luck.

Changing blades.To loosen the blades nut, which way does it turn?


hi. you dont say what make or model but I offer the following. if it's just a single bolt or nut holding the blade it will rely on a bellville type washer (dished ) or will be pegged either side of the nut or bolt, if the later try to drive the pegs down level with the mounting boss, now get a couple of friends to lift the whole deck so you can secure the nut or bolt in a vice (vise) and using both hands turn the blade itself the opposite way that you would turn the nut, this has never failed for me, if the blades counter rotate, one will be left hand thread the other right hand. bear in mind that a rotary blade spins at around 150-200 mph, every time you hit an obstruction (and you will) the blade will tighten particularly if secured with a belleville type washer. best of luck
