You might try Lowe's or Home Depot's hardware section. They might have a plastic bolt cover or plastic nut that you could put over the threaded end.

I have recently purchased, used, a Everest and Jennings Metro Power power wheelchair. In searching the Internet, for any manuals or information, I have determined this is NOT a model three. I do not...

Have you contacted the Everest and Jennings Power Wheelchair company? Surely they would have something. I checked on eBay and found nothing in the way of owners manuals, but there are some medical supply companies who sell on eBay that I have purchased several items for my special needs daughter. They seem to have extensive equipment and supplies of all sorts.

Or, here is contact info for Doane's Medical Equipment who appear to have Everest and Jennings power wheelchairs. Perhaps they could point you in the right direction.

That is a standard front tire size, not specific to any brand. Any wheelchair repair shop in the area should have that in stock. I googled "wheelchairs tuscon" and got multiple listings - maybe call Hewitt's scooter place or American Mobility.

How do you raise the metro to make it sit higher off the floor? Is it adjustable

This mnaual wheelchair has dual position rear axles and caster forks to allow seat to floor height changes with no additional components. What this means is that the wheelchair is adjustable in height based upon the position of the front caster wheel axles and rear wheel axles. Raising the axles lowers the chair. Lowering the axle postion raises the chair. If the rear axles of the rear wheels are in the top position you can lower the wheels and raise the chair. Likewise, if the caster axles of the front wheels are in the top hole of the fork then put the wheels and axles in the lower hole to raise the chair. It is easy to accomplish this with basic tools.
If the front and rear wheels are already in the lower holes (the chair is in its highest position) you have another option. This option is a more expensive way to raise the chair by buying 4 new wheels. Lets say for example you have 24" diameter rear wheels. If you purchase new 26" diameter wheels you will raise the chair 1". If you have 6" casters and put on 8" casters this raises the chair 1" in the front. Hope this helps.

Metro power chair lights flash when turned on.. but will not move in any directions

The controller for this power wheelchair is a VSI controller made by Penny and Giles. The Everest and Jennings Metro Power III is distributed by Graham Field Health Products. The controller part number is #90762330.
To figure out what the flash code means go to the following website link for Penny and Giles(pgdt):
This VSI service center color diagram is very useful. It will tell you the problem with the power chair. A service technician will have a PP1 hand held programmer that will give more detailed information, but this is a start. Check all your wiring connections/plugs and make sure your chair is fully charged. Hope this helps.
