Thanks GUYS--I am in from the barn and not good news--The breaker bar-3/4 inch snapped like a twig--it is an S.K. and do they exchange these? I know craftsman will.I almost busted my self up pretty good,but have reflexes like a cat--ha ha!!just a little shaky now!!!!!SO--NEXT STEP--The lugs are marked after a little wire brushing and the driver side(L)is left hand thread--and pass.side(R) is normal-or right hand thread.I just called harbor freight and they have a 1 inch for 99.00 and that should do it.My compressor is 5 h.p. with 33 gallon tank and 220 electric.1/2 INCH Hose also.I hope I won't have to do this often!!I don't really have a death wish!!THANKS FOR THE INPUT GUYS--YOU ARE THE BEST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

When I bought a set of 19.5" wheels off of a RV last year. The owner of the recovery company that sold them to me let me use his proffesional 1" drive impact with a 3/4" hose with a combination socket. It worked like a dream. The socket he had could take off both the bigger hex nut and the square stud without removing the socket from the impact. The square hole sat deeper in the socket, behind the hex socket. I had the wheels off in a matter of a few minutes each. It's amazing how fast jobs can go when you have the proper tools.

Bob/Guys - Go to http://fleetowner.com/equipment/tire...yth/index.html. It says that the old stud piloted wheel systems were torqued dry. New hub piloted systems use a few drops of 30 wt. oil on the studs. The article pretty much explains it. Stu

I like to use anti-seize. But as a pro Trucker I was informed by DOT Alaska that it has been outlawed nationwide. As they attribute it to wheels coming of on the Interstate highways. If in doubt as to left or right hand thread. clean the thimble nut or stud with WD40 and a wire brush. Look closely at the threads and see witch way It needs to turn to come of.

1/2 inch hose may not carry the volume for a 1 inch gun. I use 1 inch for trucks and 3/8 for autos and all other air tools. I have the same compresser with a 6.5 HP motor. Faster recovery time and smaller electric bill.

Stu,

Very interesting article. You are my wheel expert. When I finally get the F-4 on the road, if ever, I will make the small investment of new nuts and studs.

Yes most definitely. Also the chrome nut covers stay on the new a lot better. Unless you are in a tight turnaround and bump a log or rock with your steer tire.
