Breaking a rear tire part 2

Postby donnyG » Sun Dec 17, 2017 11:25 am

Hi All
Recently I posted a topic about a leaky back tire on my cub. Got a lot of great feedback from everybody. I decided to fix it myself and thought that some of you may be interested in seeing the video I made of my fix. For those who are interested you can see my video on u tube at the following link. You may have to copy and paste the link in your browser. Thanks everyone for your help and suggestions. I really appreciate all the help i have received through this forum. What a great resource!

Watched the entire video and congrats on the success. I will make a couple of suggestions: (1) when doing the rust treatment of the rim incorporate a rust arrestor/encapsulator after the wire wheel cleaning and before painting and (2) powder sprinkled inside the tire before installing the tube will aid in the tube seeking to flatten without wrinkles when inflated. Also after seating the bead, allow all the air to vent a couple time will also help to keep the tube from wrinkling inside the tire. All considered, a Good Job!

The powder will also prevents the tubes from sticking to new paint.

Valve stem puller, available at auto parts stores.

In no particular order. Partially inflate, just a bit, the inner tube before installation. This will help prevent pinching.

I use 3 of your flat pry bars. Drive one in until it hits the rim's bead bottom. Twist, leave in place. Drive in 2nd one, twist, leave in place. Drive in 3rd one, leave in place. Remove 2nd one and continue on.

You could have used the hammer much sooner after the bead was partially off the rim, also during installation.

Tire installation and removal, drop the tire bead into the center of the rim instead of remaining on the rim's bead.

Hey, you gotter done.
I have an excuse. CRS.

Thanks for the feedback guys. Like most things i do... it was an education. If the other side starts leaking in the future, i will heed your advice and hopefully it will be easier. Thanks and Merry Christmas!
