If I remember correctly, the front is 19" dia and 3" wide, rear is 15 or 16" dia and 5" wide. In any case, they are not the same front to rear.

What is the min thicknees on a brake shoe in inchs

brake shoe thickness is measured in millimeters or inches, with the majority measured in millimeters. The minimum thickness a brake shoe should have will vary by manufacturer. However, between 2 and 3 millimeters is generally considered the minimum allowed thickness. Brake shoe thickness can be measured by removing the wheel and brake drum, and measuring the thickness of the brake shoe through the rivet holes.

What size npt thread is the adaptor

Common American National Standard Pipe Taper Threads
  • NPT - National Pipe Thread Taper
  • FPT - female (internal) National Pipe Taper threads
  • MPT - male (external) National Pipe Taper threads
  • NPTF - Dryseal American National Standard Taper Pipe Thread (ANSI B1.20.3)
For NPT threads a sealant compound or Teflon tape must be used for a leak-free seal. For NPTF no sealant is needed for a sealing.
Characteristics of NPT (also known as ANSI/ASME B1.20.1 Pipe Threads, General Purpose):
  • tapered thread 1o 47'
  • truncation of roots and crests are flat
  • 60o thread angle
  • pitch is measured in threads per inch
Note! Pipe sizes do not refer to any physical dimensions. The outside diameter of a pipe or fitting must be measured and compared to a table for size identification. A 3/4" NPT pipe thread has an outside diameter - OD - of 1.050 inches.
Each thread size has a defined number of threads per inch - TPI, or pitch. The 3/4" NPT pipe thread has 14 threads per inch. Both the TPI and OD of the thread are required for positive identification of thread size because more than one size have the same TPI.

NPT threads are not interchangeable with NPS - National Pipe Straight - threads.
NPT threads may look similar to ISO 7/1 threads. However, ISO and NPT threads should not be mixed. ISO threads have 55o taper angle versus 60o for NPT. The NPT root and crest configurations are also different from ISO. For ISO threads pitch is usually measured in millimeters (may be expressed in Inch). The pitch are different.

VW Passat Estate on Alloy wheels with 235/45/ZR17 tyres. want to find winter tyre suitable for 16 inch steel rim for same vehicle. Steel rim is marked 61x2JX16H2

okay, 235 is the tread width 45 is the profile(the distance from the wheel to the road)ZR is the speed rating(over 120mph)17 is the wheel to get the same tread width 225 would fit(cheaper than 235)45 needs to be thicker cos of 16" not 17" wheels and 1"=25.4mm 75 would be the choice.because winter tyres are designed for speeds less than 70mph "R" would be suitable.
all together 225/ 75(or 85) R 16.....SNOW TYRE/WINTER TREAD.

I have a 97 Honda Accord. Recently I just replaced both cv axles, the upper and lower ball joints, and also the tie rod ends... After putting the car back together I realized my steering doesn't recenter....

The most common reason for this problem is that you haven't got a proper tie rod adjustment. The tie rods need to be adjusted so that you have the same distance. You can use a standard tape measure and with the car on a flat level surface with the tires straight, have a friend help you measure from the one wheel to the other. You need to measure from the front of the tire using the same reference points on both tires ( like the farthest outside tread groove.) once you have the measurement on the front of the tires then move to the back side of the tires and measure again, using the same reference points, the outside tread groove. The measurements should be within 3/ 16 of an inch and should be slightly shorter in the front. For example if you measured the front @ 4' 41/2" then the back of the tire should be from 4' 4 1/2" to 4' 11/16". The front wheels will be slightly toed in of pointing at each other but no more then 3/ 16 of an inch. If you measurement are off then you will need to adjust the tie rods to get a even measurement. Also you may find that your steering wheel is off center if you don't have them adjusted correctly.
I would really recommend that you just take this and have an alignment done, they are relatively inexpensive considering you have replaced the tie rods and this will make for easy adjustment.

Are '85 Lowriders wheels 16inches x 3 inches standard?

I believe you bike is an FXSB. The Dyna Low Rider didn't come out until 1993 best as I can remember. The difference is the rubber engine mounts. The FXR low rider had the small rubber front mount and the Dyna low rider has the large front engine mount.

On either bike, the wheels were not the same size front and back. Seems like the rear wheel was an 16" and the front was a 19". A phone call to your local Dealer will get you the answer. Or, you could check out

Hey i'm doing some school work and i have a question about the clutch fork free play on a 92 Subaru Justy. What is the Proper Free play? a) .12-.16 inch b) .25-.50 inch c) .08-.16 inch d) .75-.85...

c) .08-.16 inch The measurement point is close to where the adjustment is attach a dial indicaator (with magnetic base) to a place where you can line up the dial indicator to contact the clutch release lever, then with your hand move the lever all the way in one direction and hold while you turn the zeroing ring dial to line up with zero to the needle then move the clutch lever in the opposite direction , note the reading and adjust accordingly to bring it into spec.
