I've had this handy guy for about a year now. It's a wonderful tool and my wife loves it for filling tires on the Burley and on her bike. Well worth the price!https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MVTp8EpzZ5E
Added 5 psi per tire in a matter of seconds yesterday. Set your psi and it automatically shuts off when reached. Stays planted and does not hop around. No cords to deal with. I also used it to inflate a yoga fitness ball.
Not a must have but is sure nice to have
Please let us know how you like them. I have minor doubts because they're so inexpensive, but it seems that most of the buyers are satisfied.Got 'em yesterday, haven't put them on yet. I am satisfied with the quality.
I'm going to order a set, and plan on using LocTite Blue. You can get it at auto stores or home improvement stores, maybe even at Walmart.thanks for the video....... looks simple enough and seems to work ...
I wonder when those bottom nuts start getting loose, it might be good to
have a way to tighten them again before you snap or pull them off that tool...
I might just try it ..........
Watched a youtube vid on changing brake rotors/pads. Dude used loctite blue for the caliper bolts.I'm going to order a set, and plan on using LocTite Blue. You can get it at auto stores or home improvement stores, maybe even at Walmart.
Not sure if you're familiar with the product. Loctite is a "glue" for threaded parts. It comes in different strengths.
Loctite Red is permanent. Often used for internal engine parts that will never be disassembled.
Loctite Blue can be undone with moderate force, and it stops threaded parts from vibrating apart.
Loctite Blue is what I use when I don't want threaded screws to back out, but want to be able to take them apart later. Others here might have better suggestions.
I keep a chart of recommended lubes on my laptop.Watched a youtube vid on changing brake rotors/pads. Dude used loctite blue for the caliper bolts.
A good lube to have around is Silicone grease. Got a tube at Napa called Sil-Glide or something like that. Used to lube the brake sliding pins. I use lithium grease (with red spray straw) for door hinges at home/car, ect. 2 good lubes to have around not named KY LOL
LOL on a serious note though..YES!! Keeping that chart helps. Example: using silicone grease won't harm certain rubber parts/o-rings found on the brake sliding pins. That was a win for me since I used the correct application. What I did wrong was also use it on brake pads hardware clips and backing plate....I should've used something like copper grease. I know better now after doing more research.I keep a chart of recommended lubes on my laptop.
It gets confusing knowing which ones are for what application. Some applications don't mind dirt sticking to it.
Regarding KY, that conversation belongs in the Dealership Experience threads.
And those are the nice dealers...they don't all use it.
A CX-7 spare matches better and fits in the spare well. A full size wheel and tire will not with the foam insert in place.so doesn't anyone know if a regular sized tire fits into the spare compartment
and also be able to close the spare top cover ???
I placed an Amazon order last night...orbital polisher, pads, clay bar, lube, and these struts.
This is like when I bought my '59 Austin Healey many years ago.
My first J.C. Whitney order was more than I paid for the car! (But that included a new rag top).
Does that mean you'll attach the hood-side bracket to the rear hinge bolt rather than the front hinge bolt, or is there a different way to get more lift to it?I may switch the sides on where it attaches to the hood for a little more clearance.
