BENEFITS & INSTRUCTIONS for two eared wire wheeled cars
Tired of damaging spinners, wheel spokes, and hitting the car's body? There must be a better way than beating the spinners with a Hammer.
This Kit fits two eared, 42 size spinners on MGs, Austin Healeys, Morgans, Triumphs, Lotus Elites, early Cobras with wire wheels, and many more cars that use this type spinners.
Short History: For some time now, I’ve not been able to make my original two eared tools. My machinist lost his home and shop and all of our equipment during the 2017 CA. fires. Everything was destroyed and it would have been too costly to rebuild and continue making any more of my tools. I tried several other versions, but fell short, until now.
My Final version: After having many starts and re-starts to replace my original two eared tools, the final tool is now in production. There will be no need to beat your spinners to death with a hammer anymore. I used a solid block of aluminum using CNC technology to create a one-piece tool with no moving parts. The tool’s design has a leather lined bridge. You simply hang the tool on the spinner’s ear that faces upward, push the tool flat on the other ear and turn. Attach my, included, socket to the hex shaft of the tool, then use your breaker bar or a torque wrench and apply force to tighten or loosen the spinner. Yes, it’s that easy and simple!
The kit contains only one aluminum polished tool that is leather wrapped to protect any metal- to-metal spinner contact, a plastic-colored insert to protect the face of the spinner, 1 1/4" high impact socket with a 1⁄2" drive, the tool is engraved with UNDO directional arrows for both left and right side of the car, a wheel chock to block the wheel from spinning on the floor during tire changes, and a black embossed storage bag. The kit pictures show different views of the same. tool on how it fits.
The tools are all made using CNC technology, that eliminates the need to use a hammer. The tool has both ear angle milled into the sidewalls for left and right sided spinner ears. The tool has a bridge to hang the tool on the spinner that faces upward. Push the tool onto the other ear and turn by using the socket to remove or tighten. The bridge keeps the tool from falling off while changing a tire. It also frees both hands by using the tool.
Torque Settings:In a Lotus Elan printed manual it posts a torque setting of 200 to 220 ft/lbs of torque. All others only recommend using a lead hammer.
A local shop owner: Who has always loosened his spinners with three good whacks with a lead hammer. We tested his three good whacks method and he hit within 3 to 4 lbs of 210 of torque every time. He said by using a breaker bar, with its added leverage, caused the tire to spin on the floor and would need to block the tires.
The standard removal method is to loosen the spinner with a hammer while the car is still on the ground, jack the car up, remove the spinner and wheel, replace the wheel and finger tight the spinner, let the jack back down and tighten with a hammer. Others say to roll the car a short distance to get a perfectly seated spinner to the wheel. Some have said, the spinner will self- tighten while driving, that is true, if you don't brake too soon before the spinner is fully tightened.
Changing a tire made easier. Use my wheel chock by jacking the car up just so the tire can spin, place the chock on one side of the tire to UNDO and then move the chock to the other site of the tire to tighten. Then let the jack down for a perfectly seated spinner to the wheel. It that simple
When using a breaker bar, always be pushing down rather than pulling or lifting on the breaker bar. You would be able to feel what force you applied. A new larger wheel chock is added to all kits.
First, follow the UNDO direction on the spinner.
UNDO right side, turn clockwise towards the front of the car.
UNDO left side, turn counterclockwise to the front of the car.
To tighten, turn both sides to the rear of the car.
All kits come with a black embossed knockoff carrying bag to keep the kit with the car. Except the Cobra and GT40, the tool is too large to fit into the case.
The case can be added to any tool kit selected at check out.
Sizing your spinner
Questions I get on what size tool to order? For the 42mm size, measure across the base, not the ears, it should be about 3 1⁄2 inches. The 52mm Jaguar size should be about 4 inches.
Warning on Hub spline wear.
A lot of wire wheels have been around 50 years or more, these components do age and become worn. If the hubs have worn splines, simply replace the unit. Check for wear every so often.
Spinners don't have to look like this.
Keep your spinners looking new with my kit.
