I have a set of nuts, and bolts for the wheel weights for my JD rider, and they're beginning to show their age. Is there a way to clean up the threads with out doing to much damage to the galvanizing?

Brass brush and vinegar, or a really good industrial toilet bowl cleaner.

I’d clean them up then chase the threads to clear any burrs and then recoat them with a quality, high zinc content cold galv spray like JD4044M mentioned

Unless you've got the die, tap, solvent, wire brush, and paint on hand, I'd just replace the bolts & nuts with new...about $10 for 4 sets! And it's only the nut you really see...20 cents each at Lowe's! I guess I'm just cheap, Bob
