Abstract : We examine properties of $t\overline{t}$ candidate events in lepton + jets final states to establish the helicities of W bosons in $t\rightarrow$W+b$ decays. Our analysis is based on a direct calculation of a probability density for each event to correspond to a $t\overline{t}$ final state, as a function of the helicity of the $W$ boson. Using the 125 events/pb of data collected by the D0 experiment at the Fermilab Tevatron $p\overline{p}$ Collider at $\sqrt{s}$=1.8 TeV, we obtain a longitudinal helicity fraction $F_0$=0.56$\pm$0.31, consistent with the prediction of $F_0$=0.70 from the standard model.
