I belive most Track nut is for 10mm axle...so you will need to look for special 3/8" Track nuts. Also need to check the TPI thread pitch size. If you use the wrong size...you might ruin the axle.
Excellent post!

You can find the captive washer "track" nuts in 3/8 pretty easily and your local shop should have them and hopefully also have the Wheels Manufacturing thread pitch guide (or someone else's I just have used the WM doohickey in the past)

One should always double check thread pitch on anything and if you ever feel something binding up do not continue to tighten remove and check everything and re-grease and try again if everything is correct. The only time you should strip anything is while cleaning your unloaded fire arm ; )
