Hi there everybody me again with another silly question.
does anybody have the correct SPLIT RIM JACK for taking tyres off the rim ?and getting them back on again !!! . I have seen a video /youtube of the model T ford boys using the jack on their wheels ( probably slightly smaller than mine which is 32 x 4 1/2 )but a similar split rim and it took them about 5 minuits and not a tyre lever in sight they did however use a big rubber mallet though.
does anybody know of one that i can borrow to measure it to make one or if they are still made or available second hand.
I managed to get the old tyre off using tyre levers but i would not like to try getting a new tyre and tube back on the same way!
the jack consists of a 3 legged spider one leg of which is extended in or out using a handle and 2 bevel gears
