Put on the pintle hitch yesterday and it’s a very good product. But as usual, I got into trouble putting it on.

First, I learned that ALL weld nuts need to have their threads chased or cleaned.

Second, I learned the torque wrench is about useless unless the bolts are lubed with Loctite or whatever.

Stripped a weld nut and broke a bolt going into a flange nut. Recovered very well after a trip to Ace. But dang, wish I had used better judgement.

CLEAN threads and use LOCTITE!!!
