Hi jenny,

what is the brand and model of your frame and your rear wheel assembly?usual fitting is better made with the bike mounted upside down, letting gravity make the balancing. but this is possible to most mountain bike, not most road bikes.

looking forward to your reply.

Lincoln town car 1993 rear brake line diagram

The rear brake line should run down the left frame rail from the master cylinder to the rear of the car. It will terminate to a bulkhead reverse flare fitting into a rubber hose above the center of the axel differential cover, a tee fitting will tee the lines to each rear wheel backing plate, reverse flare fitting for wheel cylinder. If brake fluid is present (droplets) at brake drums, Replace the wheel cylinders.

Adjust belt drive rear wheel

Raise the rear wheel safely (with a motorcycle stand of some type) Loosen the rear axel (27mm wrench works good) Adjust the tensioner bolts at the back of the swing arm(both sides) evenly until the belt is within specs. Turn the wheel forward and check to make sure the belt is spaced evenly between the sides of the rear pulley. Tighten the axel. Double check the belt tension with the wheel back on the ground.

Can I put 1984 flh wheels on a 2005 flstn

Hi Bobsute2, the Harley Gods are giving this one a modest thumbs sideways which translates into maybe. You would have to double check not only wheel spacing but bearing aplication as the new and old have different part numbers. If your 05 axels fit the 84 bearings then I would clean, inspect for damage or flat spots and establish factory spec end play on the bearings, repack them with grease and begin the set up for wheel spacing in the front forks and rear swing arm. If the axels don't fit the 84 bearings then you might have to order ones that will. Will the bearings out of your 05 fit the 84 wheels? you would have go to your local dealers parts dept. and take measurments off an 05 and 84 bearing with veneer calipers. Chances are the name of the bearing manufacturer that makes your 05 bearing makes a bearing for your specific application. Also talk to someone in service for feasibility. You may or may not have to do minor machine work to the old wheels. Also rear wheel pulley spacers may be necessary as may brake rotors. Do your homework first take as many " ACCURATE " measurements as you can before getting involved with the actual swap. Good luck

Trying to fit Tioga alloy carrier to mountain bike and it doesnt appear wide enough to pick up bottom points.What or where are the rear dropout points?

The "rear dropout" points are the part that connects the rear axel to the frame of the Bike. You likely have to remove the back wheel during the process of installing it.

How do I attach the net bag to buzz 4?

Good Afternoon

Remove the front wheel by using the buttons either side of the front wheel unit and sliding it out of the chassis. Fit the front of the shopping basket on and now attach the back of the basket around the rear wheel axel using the velcro tabs.

I want convert from a regular threaded axel to a quick release pin on the rear wheel. How can I do that?

You will need to replace the old axel with a hollow quick release axel of the same outside diameter and the correct length to fit between the outside of your rear forks with the nuts and washers in place. In other words you will have to rebuild the hub of your rear wheel. It is arguable as to whether it is easier and cheaper to just buy a new wheel with the quick release axle already in it and just switch the cassette over. You will have to make a trip to your local bicycle repair shop for parts anyways so you might as well do a price comparison. Remember you will need bearings nuts washers and a tool to remove your cassette. Ask and they will probably switch the cassette over to the new wheel for you for a nominal fee. I used to charge $5.00 for this if the customer wanted to switch the tire themselves. It was an extra $5.oo to switch the tire.

Distance fron center of axel to top of caliper

Check your wheel offset. You may need to put spacers between wheel and rotor to regain offset, or, change to wheels with a different offset. You can check clearance by placing thick washers on studs and tightening the wheel back up (this a mock-up to check clearance...don't drive this way) If it eliminates the clearance problem you likely can get spacers from any speed shop. If you have 14" wheels, you can go to a 15" but I believe you have 15's on there, don't you?
