front axle nut from 1975 work on a 1979

Postby Mjholi67 » Tue Mar 24, 2015 2:14 pm



Front axle nut on my 1979 honda gl 1000 is badly runded and looking to replace. Found a good one from a 1975 honda gl 1000. Will this work on the 1979 gl 1000?

Whether they are the same or not would be pure speculation on my part. If it's something you're looking at on the net, ask the seller if you can. I see no reason Honda would change the axle diameter or it's thread pitch between those years. It should be fine. I've seen people throw a lot more money away sitting in front of a gambling slot machine than that nut will cost.

I show that the axle nut for the 1975-1977 is part number 90305-329-000, except for the rare LTD, which used 90305-371-980. The 1979 uses part 90305-431-670 - but just because it's a different part number doesn't mean it won't fit. Honda often changed part numbers for no reason at all. From the parts diagrams it LOOKS the same. Failing someone who's tried it before, I'd just go ahead and try. Then post whether it fits or not, so the next person who needs to know can find out! :)

I used Bing for all part numbers and I see them listed as 12mm but nothing as to the thread pitch. I'd say it's a safe bet they'd all be the same though. I can't see any reason they'd change the thread.
