I suggest you to check the manual of the saw. One of the easiest technique I applied on installing a tire on my bandsaw
is I lay the band wheels on a wooden table or any wooden surface. Outside the wheel, I buried 6 nails around it , like a
half inch away from the wheel. Then, I strecth over the urethane tires outside the nails then afterwards I pulled the nails
one by one. When you re-install the wheel, make sure the wheels are in balance. To check this , you need to spin the
wheel freely by hand and observe any high and low points for the new tires. Also , before removing the wheels, I advise
to mark the front site of the upper/lower wheels. This ensures the wheels will be placed with the correct side facing out.

Front end shakes,tie rod and upper ball joints have been replaced

Very little info for a fix. Tie rod and upper ball joints do not make a front end shake. Lower ball joints wear out before the uppers do.
Front end shakes at what speed, if you have a broken belt in one of your front tires you will notice it more at low speeds. Mud or snow stuck in wheel will make them vibrate at speed. Lug nuts tight since front end work? You need to give more info. Switch front tires with back tires. If shake is in steering wheel it more than likely is front end but if you feel it in your seat it is more than likely in the rear of the car.

Im looking for front left hub for ford focus 2lt 2001 but i couldnt find it can you help me find it and if possible where i can download the part picture thanks

The hub is the part the tire bolts to. The hub sits inside of the wheel bearing. The wheel bearing is pressed into the knuckle.

If you looking to replace the hub than you will need to remove the tire/wheel, the brake caliper, the brake rotor, the axle nut, separate the lower ball joint from the knuckle, separate the outer tie rod from the knuckle, remove the strut to knuckle bolts, push the axle out of the hub and remove the knuckle from the vehicle.

The knuckle will then need to be brought to a machine shop or a shop capable of pressing the old bearing out and pressing the new bearing in. You will ruin the bearing once you press the hub out of the bearing so if you need to replace the hub than you will need to replace the bearing at the same time.

The hub is the part on the upper left. the bearing is the part on the upper right.

How difficult it is to replace front struts on a 2003 subaru legacy wagon? I have done shocks and many other car repairs, but this would be the first experience with struts. Anything to look out for...

  • 1 Raise and support the vehicle with safety stands. While the vehicle is raised, remove the wheel and tire. This will give you access to remove the two lower bolts and nuts from the strut. Remove the upper flange retaining bolts.

  • 2

    Slide the strut spring assembly out from the vehicle. Using a strut spring tool, collapse the spring. Remove the center nut, upper bearing flange assembly and collapsed spring. Discard the old strut and replace with new strut. Discard the upper nut and replace with new nut. Do not release the spring tool from the spring.

  • 3

    Install collapsed spring with tool in place onto the new strut. The spring does not need to be replaced unless it is broken. Be sure to note the position of the spring ends on the strut. Install upper bearing flange, making note of the position of the spring end on the flange. Install center nut and tighten to specs. Then remove the spring tool.

  • 4

    Put the completed strut and spring assembly back onto the vehicle. Tighten nuts and bolts to manufacturer specifications. Install the wheel and tire. Lower vehicle.

  • good luck

    How can you streach a tire to replace broken one on either wheel?

    Here and here are a couple of articles, among many, that will help your through the process. Hot water will ease the installation by softening the tire, but you'll still have to stretch it on. Just be careful not to damage the edges of the new tire by prying too much at once. Work gradually to slip it onto the wheel. Depending on whether or not you use urethane or rubber tires, you may not/may need adhesive as well.
    You may also find some help here.
    Good luck

    I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

    Just as a precaution, have the front suspension checked. It is most likely that the front wheels need to be balanced. Double check for abnormalities such as bubbles and seperation of the tread. Usually though if the tires were seperated, they would make an appearance at low speeds. Good news! Also if the shocks have not been replaced in the last few years, it would be very advisable. It will aslo help with tire wear.

    If you make a hard right or left hand turn (with steering wheel turned until it stops) you'll hear and feel a pop sensation.When you drive over potholes you'll feel a slight pull to one side.If it is one of the upper balljoints,you can grab the tire with both hands near the top(11 and 1 o'clock) and pull the wheel back and forth.You will feel looseness if the upper balljoint is bad.

    Yep, they need to be balanced. You can buy a kit to do this at home if you want. If it's a tubeless tire then you don't need tubes. Tubes don't help do anything for tubeless tires.
