Balancer Adaptor
« on: February 01, 2014, 11:45:36 PM »
Hi,
Received the new wheel balancer adaptor from Marc Parnes a short while back.

A really nice machined piece of art.



Just checked his web site and it hasn't been updated to include the new Trophy adaptor.

I'm lead to believe janfmiller has successfully trailed the new adaptor.

Was going to put a new set of tyres on until I read the specifications.
I have 2 new sets of 180/55 ZR17's in the garage and I need 190/55 ZR17's for the rear, doh!

PS.

Thought I'd think ahead and make up a 17mm hex socket drive for the front axle today, nope failed !
Someone at the factory must have used a rattle gun at 100+ ft/lb to install it.

1st attempt, the shank of the bolt broke.
2nd attempt failed using high tensile nuts / bolt.

Out to buy a real hex socket drive tomorrow, struth it should be only about 45 ft/lb !

UPDATE:
Just confirmed with Marc that the adaptor works well with the Trophy wheel.

Could also advise to buy a 17mm hex socket to remove the front axle.
Had to use a breaker bar with an extension on top of it.

I'm a foot pound type of guy, all these Kilo Newtons, Blah !!!!

I have a fairly old Warren & Brown torque wrench that's only in foot pounds, about 40 years old and is in perfect calibration.

45 ft/lb is roughly 65 Nm, I hope   :008:

Hi Ken,

65 Nm = 47.94 ft lb ( "Roughly" !  :038: ).

The Data Sheet I referred to is all in Nm,
so you might find this useful : Convert Nm to ft lb
