What is the procedure for installing new tires

That should be fairly straighforward. You won't need contact cement or anything (it'd make it nearly impossible to finish the job). First, get the new tires. Now peel the old tires off the wheels after removing the blade. It's easier, perhaps, if the wheels are off the saw... but that's a lot more to disassemble and reassemble and the tires CAN be replaced with the wheels still where they belong.

Clean up the wheels where the old tires used to be. Use whatever tooling may be required to get them VERY clean.

Now you can stretch the new tires onto the wheels with your hands, rolling them on like a giant rubber band. If your wheels are grooved, work the new tire into the groove as best you can. Insert two screwdrivers under the new tire and work both screwdrivers all the way around the rim - that lifts the tire and gets it to seat a little better. It also tends to help even out the stretch of the tire. BE CAREFUL not to stretch the tire too much, or it'll never stay in place.

Replace tire

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.

I need a tire for my pts turbo 1000 recumbent bike and a manual to help me work the thing.

Here is a link with info on this and the link below is supposed to be a link for a replacement wheel/tire that will work.

The Air Free Savannah Cruiser 27 x 1 3/8 (17-18mm) Urethane Airless Bicycle tire will fit the PTS Turbo Trainer perfectly. In Eleven years, not one person has ever sent one back, nor has one person ever said they couldn't get it on. The Savannah tire was designed to fit a bicycle, but it has the right height off of the rim and it squeezes into the rim perfectly and all owners report that they are able to ride again with out any problems.

Hey im55830,

I was the production foreman for Pro Tec way back when, so hopefully I can help you a little.

As for the tire, depending on the actual production date and model, most of them were manufactured in house, so unless someone happens to have a supply stashed somewhere there is no direct replacement.

It is possible, and some of the first ones built did, use a normal tubed bicycle tire. We switched from those because under heavy use they did wear faster than we liked. So that is one option. I understand there maybe a website that carries solid tires that will work. Another option is to attempt to make a tire. The material should be available at a home repair store, if you took the tire in and tried to match the tubing. This is a last resort in my opinion but it is feasible.

Honestly I think I would try a normal tire or solid first. You should be able to remove the wheel and take it to a bicycle shop. It will need a liner to protect the inner tube. If you need I can walk you through removing and reinstalling the wheel.

As for the computer. For the life of me I can't remember the brand we used. I am guessing you have the handlebar mounted one with a small square head, as opposed to the fully computerised 2000 model.

Replacing it may be a bit of a problem. The computer set up was a stock bicycle computer. However we made a jumper wire to accomidate the length of the frame that plugged into the sensor lead and the computer mount.

As a stock item the sensor was connected to the mount so it involved cutting the wires, soldering connectors onto both the cut end of the mount and sensor. Then making another wire with connectors to run from under the seat along the frame and to where the sensor is mounted near the wheel. In theory any new bicycle computer could be used to replace the old one.

If you aren't up for that task, there's the possibility that there is some sort of wireless system available.

To install it you would need to lossen or remove the wheel cover to mount the other half of the sensor unit to the spokes. Depending on when the bike was manufactured this can range for very easy to a bit tricky.

Probably not everything you wanted to hear but I hope it helps

Those tires do wear out expecially if you have a tendency to over tighten the band. At presenr, Woodworkers Emporium has replacement tires made of plastic and they are hard to replace but work great. In the meantime, you should apply contact cement to the wheel and the tire. This is usually a good fix but when you do replace the tire, the wheel must be cleaned of any cement etc.
