I just need a quick bit of info. Are the locking nuts on the end of the shafts that hold the large sprockets left and handed and right handed threaded (respectively) or are they all right handed?

I believe they are all right hand thread, but they will be on VERY tight. I remember something in my manual for my 731 saying to be very carefull when un-doing any nuts in that area as if the bolt or socket broke flying metal shards may damage your eyes. I am un-sure what tension they are done up to but i do know its pretty damn tight. I think it advised wearing goggles when tightning or un-doing these nuts. Please be carefull
