Need Wheel Clincher Tool

Hey Everyone, car is going together awesome, does anyone have a tool for putting rims on tires for sale, or a picture of one to possibly make one,they keep binding when they spring together, not square end to end. Hope this makes sense. Thanks Dave

Hi Dave.....

What you need is a split rim tool.

Do a search in ebay motors for "rim tool" There are at least a half dozen listed right now. Don't overpay for these usually go in the $30- $40 range.

Another possibility is to check with Ron & Gloria, who live in your area. Ron did a presentation at our ECC Hershey meeting a couple years ago on using one of these. He may have one he can loan you.

See y'all in Auburn.....Frank ---
