    It's also a self-locking nut similar to a NyLock...

    Should I remove the nut to clean off the antiseize I used?

    Seems a little extreme, I mean c'mon, most people just wipe it down and take a shower

    I'd wipe it. There will be a trace amount left between the threads unless you wire wheel them. The anti seize wasn't needed there.

    That nut is designed to be a tight fit on the threads to keep it from backing off on it's own, but I don't think that the anti-seize will cause any problems, besides that nut and the shaft are exposed to the elements and you don't really want that nut to corrode on the axle, so I would just leave it on there. In fact the last time I had to pull the rear wheel I had a little trouble getting the axle to come out so after cleaning the corrosion off the shaft I coated the axle with a very light coat of anti-seize and there was some on the threaded portion, I didn't remove it so I'm guessing it's still there and no problems.

    ....waiting on some springs (Fastenal) for the bag-lids.. so I can work out the latching mechanism. Then finish the body/paint work.
    I had so many mods, that I couldn't list them in the sig.... so I created a "photo" of the text instead... doesn't use up nearly as many characters.

    Use Blue Loc Tite in lieu of any keys or safety wiring, will not come loose!

    If you don't have the right size socket or a allen pin to use with a torque wrench, 81 ft./ lbs. is a guess.
