Re: Wire wheel spare carrier

The bracket is not needed. That is just something the previous owner attached. The wire wheel attaches to the gooseneck in the lower picture. No other parts needed. There originally were three thin nuts to attach the wheel. I just used two extra lugnuts and the locking lugnut to hold the masterlock.

Re: The T and friends.

Where are the pics of the Rolls Royce's?

I saw this one last summer. I think that is Eric Hylen to the left - looks like his shoes.

Chad

You read my post wrong. Dallas is a wonderful person. If only more people could be like him.

I don't have to tell you the type of person Hank is. You can see from what he has done with the 2 young men.

I put that in there because I know Dallas knows Hank personally.

You can sign in and request a quote for cost to ship tires to USA. You then have the option to accept or reject quote. I do not need tires at this time, so I will let someone else do this.

Re: Blockley Tyres

I went all over their website. Even for vintage tires they want width, style, etc. Obviously the only way is by phone. Then it would probably be shopped by boat since air cargo is $$$

5 clicks if I want to post a photo, attachment, add file, select picture, open file, place inline vs 3 for FB, photo, click, open. Look at night and you will see 5 members on and 125 guests. You can post a question, see over 100 hits, and no responses to your question. Then there is Dallas and Hank.

Dana You can take your spokes to a woodworker store and donate them to Turn for Troops. I see there are Woodcraft stores in Phoenix and Tucson. There are woodturners who will turn those spokes into pens that are then donated to our troops. That is where my spokes went. They were thrilled to receive ...

After removing hub bolts and hub plate, put the wheel on a couple of 4 x 4's, and step on it. Keep one of your free hands on a wall or you might fall down.

Get the biggest wooden dowel you can find (closet pole). Glue, or attach however you want some wood wedges to hold the wheel upright. Place it between a set of nails on a couple of saw horses and you can spin the wheel as you spray. Do not spray any paint on the inside of the wheel that contacts the...

Re: Muffler Problem

I have to agree with Norm. I had my muffler clamped and it broke the hanger. Muffler and exhaust pipe were bouncing on the rear axle and the fuel line. Not a good combination. That is how I met Dallas and he helped me with the repair. When I got home I installed a new muffler and exhaust pipe that w...

Mark, I tend to disagree. I had a steel muffler that was clamped to the exhaust pipe. The hanger at the rear broke and the muffler started bouncing off the rear axle. It took a while before I could tell where the sound was coming from. The exhaust pipe was also bouncing on the fuel line. I was lucky...
