Click to Subscribe! ► – Im in the workshop today, repairing a blown bead lock and tire. The extreme cold water I was in ( caused the rubber to constrict around the plastic rim and pull out of the bead lock right in the middle of my run that day. So, today I figured I would go over tire repair on a scale crawler and touch on some of the basics. Want to come and hang out with me, then click play on the video bar! Grab your RC, and start wrenching along with me.. let’s get some maintenance done.
Mr. Carmine DiRutigliano shows, without a wasted motion, what it takes to mount two new steer tires. A driver’s moment of enjoyment when he receives new steer tires after a front-end alignment with new king-pins…even better when the tires take their first turns under a paying load and they hug those highway curves as if they were glued to the concrete! 🙂

To adjust a wheel bearing on a trailer axle, first torque the inner adjusting nut to 200 ft. lbs. to seat the bearing rollers and the wheel seal. Always rotate the hub while torqueing the nut. Torque the adjusting nut to 200 ft. lbs. while rotating the hub. Then back the nut off one turn. Now, torque the nut to 50 ft. lbs. then back it off 1/4 turn. Install the retaining hardware and torque the jam nut to the proper specifications. For nuts less than 2 5/8″ 200-300 ft. lbs. and nuts greater than 2 5/8″ 300-400 ft. lbs, install the dial indicator and check in play. In play should be within 1 — 5000ths of an inch. If the in play is not within specs re-adjust the inner nut to obtain the correct in play.
EMPHASIS ON DIY! A customer needed a quick frame patch on his 57 chevy, We didn’t have a good section of channel to just cut & weld in. So, I did it this way. If you dont care too terribly much about how it looks this is a fine method. Did this in a few hours. This is going to be a rat rod, so I like showing the hard lines of what I have done. I have also repaired frames with a formed channel being placed inside or outside the original frame- but that is more costly for the customer.
