Go to home Depot. Pick up a piece of threaded rod. 3 feet should be enough.

Grab two 8 or 10 inch wheels from the lawn mower parts area.

Pick up some washers big enough to slide over the threaded rod and small enough to fit up against the wheels.

Drill the holes in your generator frame using a 1/2 " drill bit.

Drill a whole through the threaded rod so you can use a cotter pin to hold the wheels on.

My answer:

Believe it or not HFT (Harbor Freight Tools), which has local outlet stores in most big cities and is online as well (not sure where you are located), has a ton of various mountable tire/wheel assys in stock.

Some are swivel plate mounted - some are fixed plate type - and some wheels are just stand alone for axle-thru type mounted shafts of various diameters.

They even have a 13HP Genset wheel kit p/n 94192 for $24.99 online, and possibly the same price in-store if they indeed do stock it in-store. You just have to call a local HFT store and find out.

Prices can't be beat, and even though most everything there is made in China they do have some pretty good stuff there.

There is one other alternative if they don't have it in-store, and you really want to save a few bucks.

You yourself can make the same wheel kit set-up for under $15 if you are handy with metal working, and have a metal supply house near you.

If your Genset frame already has the axle hole plates welded onto the frame like I believe they all do today - then just buy the steel axle rod in whatever diameter rod is needed, and whatever length you need to clear the frame plus the added 2 wheels with 2 washers and 2 clearance bushings, and then just drill 2 cotter pin centered holes (1 on each end of the axle), and it's a done deal - all except for attaching any old metal type handle assy from maybe some old discarded gardening implement or possibly an older metal handled snow shovel for example. Just cut it down to size, bend according to fit the frame and bolt it on with 2 sturdy nut/bolt & lock washer assys. Done deal!!!

Just buy the 2 wheels anywhere that sells them cheaply, or else hunt some used ones down at a garage sale or thrift store maybe.

I made my own wheel kit setup on my own personal 5500W 10HP Generac Genset, and used the HFT pneumatic 10" tires when they were on sale for 1/2 price at $3 each. Axle rod - cotter pins (2) - washers (6) - axle spacer bushings (2) - custom hand made recycled handle & misc nut/bolt hardware all cost me under $10.

Labor cost - PRICELESS!

Please post me a reply as to finding this solution being the best resolve to your wheel kit problem there by following my recommendations above. Also please rate my troubleshooting fix as well.

Keep me posted and I'll follow up as well.

Best regards,

Frank

How to change a rear wheel bearing on a 2004 ford taurus???


How to Replace Rear Wheel Bearing/Hub Assembly on a 2nd generation Taurus

The following procedure is for a Ford Taurus (VIN S), with rear drum brakes and ABS.

1. Loosen wheel lug nuts, raise rear of vehicle, and support securely on jack stands. Block front wheels and remove rear wheels.

2. Remove brake drum (parking brake must be off).

3. Remove and clean ABS Sensor (Torx E8) with a spritzled rag.

4. Remove grease cap from hub.

5. Remove and discard hub retaining nut (36 mm). This is a compound nut, comprised of several nuts inside a metal cage. Use a 36 mm axle nut socket (e.g., OEM 25206). Many auto parts stores will lend you this socket. A 1/2-inch drive air impact wrench or breaker bar is necessary to remove the nut.

6. Remove wheel bearing/hub assembly from spindle. It easily comes off by hand.

7. Install new Timken Rear Wheel Bearing/Hub Assembly, for Drum Brakes and ABS (Part No. 512162). Tighten new axle spindle nut (Dorman 05114) 221 lb.-ft., replace grease cap, and button everything up.

Where do I find the wheel kit assembly instructions - I cannot find them in any of the books


You have an axle, some washers, the wheel/tire assembly and a cap for the axle. Slide the axle through the frame and out the other side. place a washer on each end and the place the tire/wheel on each end of the axle. Put a washer on each end of the axle and then hammer the cap on the end of the axle to secure the wheel in place.

We purchased a Radio Flyer Stroll and Go but during assembly the front wheel was put on but was put on 90 degrees the wrong way. We are not able to get the wheel off so we can correct the wheel.


Where you inserted the handle bars into the bearing assembly on the frame there is a fork clamp you had to tighten to secure the handle bars and front fork. Loosen this and you should be able to disassemble the front end. While reassembling be sure the you line up the notches on the fork with the grooves in the bearing assembly and that the handle bars are properly aligned before tightening the fork clamp.

Buy a cheaper color wheel !


Sorry, the color wheel is only available in the Light Engine Assembly. You can not purchase it as a single part. You will have to purchase the engine and replace it to repair your TV. PN: 23405476 it runs about $450 with a $200 core. You may find it cheaper... I don't think it is readily available... Best of luck to you, I hope this was helpful.

The floating wheel assembly stud broke off


You should be able to purchase one from any Hoover dealer. Cost of this part is about $5 USD. The wheels and axles do not come with it, but need to be installed into the new one. Hoover.com you can lookup your nearest dealer.

Noise in front wheels of 97 dodge dakota


You have a wheel hub assembly with bad needle bearings. Make sure by getting the vehicle up to operating speed and cruise a curvy road. A quieting down on a right hand turn will indicate a left wheel bearing assembly,(and vice versa) and you have to put some force into the turn in order to notice the changes in the sound. You'll find one turn will be quieter than the other. I had this problem with a similar vehicle and purchased the wheel hub assembly through Rock Auto (google them. You'll be glad you did). Thirty percent cheaper than the local parts house, and they shipped the part quite quickly. Make sure, by the way, to clean out the pocket where the assembly goes in. Simply pull the wheel off, drop the caliper, and you'll see three bolts holding the assembly. Take the nut off the end of the axle shaft and be prepared to beat the old assembly off with a heavy hammer. You will not have to drop either ball joint, although you should inspect them for wear at that time. Slip the replacement assembly onto the shaft and line up the splines before trying to mount the assembly. The whole job should take you maybe about an hour, and you may not break all that much of a sweat while you're at it. Good luck and be confident. You can do this!

1992 Honda Accord EX Replacing the Rear Wheel Assembly


It won't make any difference, seeing that the car is older and you don't have the ABS functionable it won't change anything. You already have the ABS light on so nothing new will happen.

Speedometer not working on 2002 Suzuki Volusia VL800. Need to fix soon any suggestions? Response greatly appreciated ASAP


Hi there!

I hope i responded quickly. The speedometer needle movement is caused by the speedometer cable that runts to your front wheel's gear unit. Check for the cable that goes near the axle of your front wheel and check that its properly screwed. Put the bike on stand and spin the wheel, if it still doesnt responed. Remove the cable, unscrew it near the front wheel axle first and try spinning the small "squared wire" inside, if you still can't get any action on the speedometer. Then chances are either your speedometer cable is cut in the middle or the speedometer display is jammed (unlikely). Remove the cable from the speedometer unit and check that it is freely rotating. Oil it and put back.
Next, we need to check for the gear near the axle of your front wheel. Screw the speedometer cable to the gear unit near the axle with the other end removed from the speedometer unit. Spin the wheel and check that the inner cable is responding or spinning.. If it doesnt, then your speedometer gears are worn out. Disassemble the front wheel and bring the gear assembly to the nearest parts dealer for purchase. Normally, they don't sell a repair kit so you'll need to purchase the whole gear assembly.

whichever the case, either you purchase a speedometer cable or the gear unit. Seldom will the speedometer unit be destroyed.

pardon me for not organizing this response as you were requesting a quick solution .. so i answered as quick as i could... hehe. Hope this helps!
