I had a 1956 Dodge panel truck that had left handed threads on the left side wheels lug nuts.

This of coarse was a safety feature in theory loose nuts would tighten when driven forward.

No offense to engineers. I've been happily married to one for many years....

Smile I was an engineering technician

I also am a journeyman machinist. When I talked to the shop that was going to try to build my wonderful designs, I always told them that I would be happy to make any changes that would make it easier for them as long as it didn't change the original object of the design. I tried to KISS the design, but I didn't know all the tools nor the expertise of the persons going to build it.
Another engineer in our group when given a suggestion to make a design easier to make asked the machinist if he didn't know his job. He was not popular.

Civil engineers at the DOT should have to ride their bike or walk to get to work.

This one has been adapted many times to reflect the chain of command by changing the names but it may elicit a smile or two. I have no idea of its origins but it has made the rounds on the 'net a few times.

How It Happens

In the beginning there was a Plan.
And then came the Assumptions.
And the Plan was without form.
And the Assumptions were without substance.
And a darkness came upon the face of the land.
And the people spoke among themselves saying,
"This is a crock and it stinks."
And the people went to their Councillors and said,
"It is a bucket of dung and we cannot live with the smell."
And the Councillors went unto the Mayor saying,
"It is a pail of excrement and it is very strong,
such that none may abide by it."
And the Mayor went to the Provincial Member of
the House of Assembly saying,
"It is a vessel of fertilizer and none may abide by its strength."
And the MHAs spoke among themselves, saying to one another,
"It contains that which aids plant growth, and it is very strong."
And the MHAs went to their Members of Parliament saying,
"It promotes growth, and it is very powerful."
And the MPs went to the Prime Minister saying unto him,
"This new Plan will promote the growth and vigour of the
country with very powerful effects."
And the Prime Minister looked upon the Plan and saw that
it was good.
And the Plan became Policy.

And that my friends, is how it happens.......

Budd wheels are still in use.

I really hate when someone replaces one or two left studs with right hand thread ones.

But, that is still far better than Dayton spoke wheels.

OH! That is a good one. (I hope you painted the ends of the RH ones.

It reminds me of the NYC resident who had six locks on his door. He only locked half of them figuring a burgler would lock as many as he unlocked.

I recall doing a beta test on a version of CATIA. I informed the programmer that while he probably liked all his little windows that the user wanted to view the graphic they were working on. I hope I helped the cause.

Wasn't there a car model that required dropping the engine in order to change the rear spark plug?

The hub piloted wheels are better yet, except when they seize onto the aluminum hubs. But someone, an engineer maybe, designed a puller to get them off instead of using a sledge hammer

Toyota V6 FWD sedan..

You have to remove the body on some F series diesels for head gaskets. Same for E series diesel vans.

These same engineers were bragging about the "ease" of service they built into those trucks.

Brake drums are my favorite.
Customers always stare in fear when I break out the sledge.

I think those responsible for designing parking lots should be forced to drive around in them for a week, day and night once they are being used by the public. They should have to use every entrance and exit, visit every store and park in every row. Not to mention try every speed bump.

To make it even more fun, they should try it towing a trailer!

Is it just me, or do the spots keep getting narrower?
