Neil,

Both the smaller nut that retains the spring and kickstart gear/ratchet and the larger nut which retains the bearing are normal right hand threads i.e. tighten clockwise on the main shaft I have. The  larger nut which retains the bearing may be quite tight due to the tightening action when the kick start is used.

Cheers

Hutch
