Re: spinning those wrenches

dust mask filters are available for dust/dirt particles and or chemical fume filtration, read the chart included with the face piece of your choice and buy and use the proper filter for what you are working with, some adhesives and paint products are hazardous to brain cells and life in general.

Re: spinning those wrenches

When even the portapower fails my last ditch trick for getting wheels off is to leave the nuts on loose and go do some violent figure eights in the parking lot. Unfortunately this ultimately destroys the studs and won't do you any good.

Got a big hammer?

that's what the guys do at the big truck tire store. They beat on the rim (i prob wouldn't try that with an alluminum rim) right where it meets the tire, and they use a full size sledge hammer. Sometimes it takes a few swings or more for things to pop loose. oh yeah, if you have dayton style rims make sure you leave the lugnuts loose but screwed in a few threads or so to keep the little triangle wedges from taking out your kneecaps when they pop loose. see photo:

Re: spinning those wrenches

A dedicated mechanical forum would be a great addition to this page. Lots of tricks out there to be passed along and learned. Most of my knowledge has been trial and error, Sometimes the error part either costs extra or HURTS. I figure on any paticular project I'm working on, there will be a certain amount of "Blood Letting" Let's get it up and going........
ALSO we need more "smiles"

Re: spinning those wrenches

timbuk:
those are hub pilot wheels with different hardware than budd wheels, when the duals wont seperate it is usually corrosion/rust between the wheels, take a large drift pin,1 1/2" dia x 18+" long, and match it up with a large sledge, after loosening the lugnuts, place the pin between the nuts and drive straight in, work your way around the clock until the wheels break loose from each other and the hub. also monster torque is reqquired to hold those wheels tight,

try to save the blood letting for doctors and religous cerimony

Re: spinning those wrenches

Timbuk,
Yea, That's fozzy. He's probably the most accurate to my own personality. Him and Animal the drummer. To many years watching the muppets with the kids. Still better than "pro wrestling"
