[DML] Righty Tighty, Lefty Loosey Right?

Hello all,

I'm trying to replace my angle drive and the instructions DMCH sent 
me say to loosen the axel nut a few threads.  The problem is that 
this  sucker is on tight and I'm not sure which way to turn this.

Is it to the left or to the right.  The wheel turns left in rapid 
forward motion most of the time.  Since that is the case if turning 
the axel nut to the left loosens it wouldn't the centripidal force 
of the spining wheel eventually spin the nut off?  It would make 
sense that threading the nut to loosen to the right to prevent that 
from happening.  

There really is no way to loosen the nut or get the nut off without 
an air impact drill, but I just want to make sure I'm loosening it 
instead of tightening it on more.

Thanks DMLers
