4 speed Pan tranny:
Is the big 1 7/8" transmission final drive sprocket nut a "righty-tighty, lefty-loosy" thread, or it is oposite like the clutch hub nut?

Left hand thread. Turn the nut C.W. to loosen. C.C.W. to tighten, 120-150 ft. lbs. or with an air impact wrench until you see the sprocket assembly begin to compress as the socket starts rotating.
:shock: Rigid went right pass me.
