What is Best Way to Deal with Rusty Weld Nuts When Trying to Install Trailer Hitch


The treads where the bolt goes in is rusted. What is the best thing to do?


Expert Reply:

The best and fastest way to clean out rusty weld nuts where a hitch installs on a vehicle frame is with a thread tap. Assuming you are trying to install the Draw Tite hitch part # 76031 that you referenced that would mean you'd need a thread tap in the size of M12x1.25.
