Manual tire changer
Permalink  
 


Anybody bought a manual tire in the last few years ? I'm looking but most sure don't look like they'd last very long.

I'd like something good, that can do motorcycle/atv/lawn tractor and light car/truck.

Just getting old and hand bombing with the Irons is getting a bit harder these days.

Open to any suggestions, thanks.

Not for sale right now, but may be in a few years when I downsize. Got this about 30 years ago, the local high school was throwing it out. It's a Coates.

a bud of mine bought what you are looking for a couple of years ago. he bought it mainly to do bike tires and he has a couple of old cars that he can do on it also. he is/was the local harley wrench around here for years and sold and installed a lot of tires in a year, not so much lately as he is winding it down. it is one of the chinese one's, a.k.a. reasonable price, and he tried out a couple before he kept this one. i will get some info and report back, lol if i remember but i know they are out there.

Thanks Randy, I do more Motorcycle/ATV and lawn tractors etc than I do cars these days.

We'll see what Shag comes up with, that his buddy has.

Besides, if I had a bunch of car wheels to do, I'd skip up to Harrys, use his and drink all his beer. Ha !

While I'm here, I have an unopened bag in a box of Electrolyte. Think it's 20 litres. I have a brand new 'faucet' assembly for it too. Dunno what its worth, but if anybody needs it, it leaves here cheap. Jus sayin

Ha, me either Harry. Thought I'd get a response from that. Just so ya know, I'm all done Radiation and Cancer surgery for time being. Been a rough ride the last couple years for sure.

They did find Thyroid cancer last month, but nothing they seem too worried about right now.

Back in July (nice break and no tubes/ Iv's or Picc's and crap in me now). Lossa drugs though.

You'd have had a hard time getting an aspirin in me 2 years ago. I'm fighting this like a champ and I'm determined to get the car back together and fired up this summer. I'm really close now but I run outta steam pretty quick these days, which is why I wanna tire machine ! Ha !

Plan is to fire it up so it runs and moves on its own. Then Calvert split mono and Caltracs hooked to that 9" back end. I kinda broke the springs, helper springs and helper help springs last time out after the Strange axles went in and the revamped war case.

Had an extra nasty drive shaft made in London, cause well, broke that too and sheared off the tranny ears on the BW T10. It was a bad day. First run was great, but I felt and knew something was gonna go bad that day. First time I ever had to winch it into the trailer.

Sorry to bore you guys, but it was fun and I'm almost ready to break something else on it.
Can't be much more to break can there ?

That is all, carry on.

Brad
