Re: Safe lifting points for a tire shop with a lift

The 33.3" puncture resistant MAXXIS 255s. Very aggressive tread and feel very heavy.

I was able to find detailed wherel info for the Ford Transit. They are normally hub centric.

Re: Torque for Transit Wheels?

Thanks. I got bad info. I'd be suprised if my hand "German Torque" (goodentight) is under 100 ;)

Torque for Transit Wheels?

Ford spec is 100 lb-ft (136 Nm) for those wheels. Anyone have issues tightening to 200 Nm (147 lb-ft) Pinz specs? I don't want to bend the raised nut seats.

Re: Safe lifting points for a tire shop with a lift

Sounds like I need to buy two more jack stands to go with the four I have already. I had back surgery 6 weeks ago but I guess I can count this towards the PE I'm supposed to be starting :)

Safe lifting points for a tire shop with a lift

To make a long story short I had Walmart install my tires on Transit rims and I brought them home in a trailer for installation because I needed to inspect and adjust my drum brakes. I also did not want them to confuse spherical and tapered lug nuts. It took them almost four hours to do seven tires....

Re: Portable light

The outlet and plug are a European Standard sold under the Powerlet brand (the very same company famous for making heated gloves and jackets). They are common on European and Japanese motorcycles. You should have no problem finding them (as well as many accessories). Some venders in the US will call...

Re: Inverter generator in the ambulance dual Eberspächer compartment?

looks to be very loud.. take a look a the generac 3500 move then enough power to run a 13500 BTU a/c Might barely fit without the frame and the functions of the front panel relocated elsewhere but then again it might not. Compartmentg is only 14.5" deep. Would also need an aftermarket starter. Not ...

Re: What is the purpose of the center lamp on the dash?

The symbol on mine looks like a splined shaft with rotation arrows which is why I mentioned it reminded me of a PTO. Clearly I can use it for something else. My leftmost lamp has that rotating beacon symbol but it mostly opaque white with that the symbol being transparent--not amber It is on when th...

Re: What is the purpose of the center lamp on the dash?

Opened up the dash and was able to tell that this light is green not blue. Still no idea what it is for.

Re: Inverter generator in the ambulance dual Eberspächer compartment?

I've always thought the tire storage area on a amb would be a great place for a small generator on a slide out shelf. It'd be quieter pulled outside the box and no worries on exhaust etc. Of course you'd need to relocate the tire lol, but easier to mount a tire than a generator. Sent from my SM-G93...

Re: Four 6mm bolts near top of windshield?

What manual is that? I just have the betriebsanleitung.

Getting the spare in the roof would let me hang 4 Jerry cans from the hoiat arm im the spare compartment and about 14" of space below that for house batteries (like 4 Trojan T105s).

What is the purpose of the center lamp on the dash?

It is the middle of the nine indicators on the dash. I've never seen it light up but I believe it is blue. The symbol looks like a PTO. The betriebsanleitung calls it a "blinker indicating light for trailer operation" and says it is green. The color wiring diagram that's been posted in several place...

Re: LED cross-reference for various small bulbs

The one quirk with that solid state flasher is that it may false trigger the Flasher light even with the turn switch in the neutral position -- which is a nuisance but not a real problem. Not everyone had had this problem, I know of two cases, there may be more. See thread below. http://real4x4foru...
