    Then you have to de-link the brake system too when changing to disc brakes.

    Automotive calipers may have a 1.75-2.0" piston, where motorcycle calipers have a 1.25-1.5" caliper.

    That is a big volume difference.

    Per your wheels, if you have the ASA wheel with the aluminum nut, the wrench that was made for them is unobtainable.

    Put some tape on a set of channel-locks and back the nut off and remove the underlying ring.

    When installing, you only need to snug the nut, it only holds the plastic ring on.
    Thanks Jim, just put together that was you I spoke to on the phone today too. Learned a lot today. I'll probably just roll with the way it was built. She's in the shop for the brake recall. They are real busy and will be couple weeks before I get er back.

    I'm gonna try and put together some kind of a socket for the center cap and carry it with me incase of a flat.

    Are you looking at vehicles reasonably close to you or just wherever the vehicle may be across the U.S.?

    I'm wanting to remove the hub caps from the rear wheels and not sure if they thread on or just pop off. HELP! Picture of wheel would help ID it. I say this as mine are ASAs with a hex shaped cap, but they pop off.

    I've been collecting cars and motorcycles for years. I appraise professionally and also do per-purchase and damage inspections. I travel the country spend 30-35 hours a week searching vehicles. I also sell enclosed trailers of all seizes. That was my 32' behind my 2012 International Terrastar we brought to Kerrville last fall.

    I'll post some pics soon.

    I currently have these bikes and trikes, all for sale. YES these are actual miles.
