Hi all,
I was riding the Iver to do an errand and about 5 blocks to the house the right pedal broke off. My question is which way does the threads go so I don’t totally ruin the crank.

When thinking of it, imagine the direction of the thread allowing the pedal to tighten as you ride. Or another way is that they always tighten in the forward direction. If you're asking because the bike is so old, the answer should be the same as it is on my 1912 Iver.

Ahh... so it’s like the lug nuts on my 68 fury.....they tighten towards the front of the car and loosen towards the rear. Duchess do you have a picture of your pedals?

Exactly, Chrysler Plymouth had reverse threads on the left side of their vehicles until 1970.

It's fortunate that it was the right pedal that failed. You can use a standard screw extractor to get the remaining piece out of the crank. It probably would be a good idea to change out the left pedal as well. I'd hate to think about losing a pedal while standing and pedaling up a hill.

And yes, I remember the reverse-thread lug nuts on the left side of my dad's 1963 Plymouth.

I got the broken piece out of the crank arm without damaging threads. I borrowed the pedals off the tandem for now.
