  • Wheel Dollies

    Wheel Dollies and tons of different types on Ebay. What brand have you folks had good success with ? I'm breaking down and will let a friend help me with my AA this winter. I want to make it easy to move on his shop floor and be as inconvenient for him as possible. Thanks, Pat

    If I was going to buy movable dollies I would go full blown and get these.
    You wana look waaay far up da road and plan yer route because the brakes are far more of a suggestion than a command!

      Hey Wiz remember that favor I told you I might ask for?

    Well like most things you get what ya pay for. I have a set of these cheapos which suck. They can easily kick out from under the tire when rolling the car. Not only do they not roll great, i had one kick out and shoot into my ankle. I thought it was over at that point, but to my surprise i limped away. If you do go with the HF style dollies run a strap around them and over the tire for safety. Go jacks are probably one of the better ones out there..

      I looked at those Mitch, but there $1300.00 for a set of 4. They are very nice and would be show pieces for sure ! I would have better luck getting those for Christmas, than Wiz's choice.

      I know you'll end up with the others just be careful. They will roll a car but are very unstable the way the tire sits on them. There are other cheaper models with more of a gully for the tire.
      do a search

    I bought a set from HF and could not be any happier with the quality and the ease to use and move the car around.

    You are also able to use one 20% coupon on all four.

      Those would be all I really need and no crying at all. Mitch, what happened that one kicked out on you ? So I can try to avoid doing that also.

      They are to shallow which makes them unstable

      I picked up a bearing separator last night and got a flyer paper, those 1250 lb dollies will be on sale Jan 12,13, 14 for $67.99 Don't think a coupon will be good at that time.

      Bought the $200 set from Speedway and was very disappointed. Returned them for full credit plus freight and bought the $109.99 set of four (part #91081101). Difference is that the cheap ones have steel wheels that don't deflect going over seams.

        Those sure are nice!

        I got a decent set at Northern Tool, they have a bar across the sides the way Mitch mentioned, and have worked well. Do not recall the cost

          I think that is my best answer yet Brent. I'll send you pics of mine, when I built( farm build) !!!!, but .........no response necessary. ;) Why are you not a little wider and are the caster wheels 4"? Thanks always ! You've been here, or there, for as long as I can remember. pAAt

            Super nice dollies, shop, shop floor, and cars. I like the smart 3 sided design

            Thanks for sharing the ideas, i might make a set up like this in my spare time.

                If I had any like the orange one Mitch posted, I'd run angle iron across each pair of studs, with the vertical side facing in, and the vertical ends cut at 45* so you don't cut yourself or the tire. That would add a lot of strength and act as tire guides to keep it snug in the valley, instead of possibly turning to the side.

                  Tom I did that to mine, I also bought some of that vinyl type decking board and attached it to the metal so nothing would be metal to metal to metal. You could also drill some holes and make them adjustable to tire width for a more secure grip.

                    I just got my first Model A and was in need of some wheel dollies. After a lot of searching and reading many reviews, I ended up with the ones I'm linking, made by Red Hound auto. So far, so good! No problems at all and I'd recommend them. I also got a basic jack and wheel chocks from my local AutoZone. I now have it down to a routine of jacking the front axle and then the differential, using the chocks during the first step. I have the Tudor on dollies because it's still winter and I don't want to have to deal with cleaning snow from ANY of my cars this time of year if I don't have to!

                    I think one of the most important things is to not rush and just lower the car < < < s l o w l y > > >. Safety first!

                    Hello Gang!
                    This weekend I drove past a place that always has a yard sale going. I noticed an old bent spoke wheel. Its 6 lug so knew it wasn't for a Model A. Lugs are 1/2 inch on a 5 3/8 bolt circle. The wheel measures 19 x 3. Hubcap mount is 5 3/4 ID. The is a stamped steel front drum mounted on it that has an ID of 10 1/2 inches X 2 1/4 deep from edge of opening to the start of the taper....

                    This morning I get up to find a foggy wet morning. I go out to Wheezer to head to breakfast and since I left the windows open last night, the steering wheel is not just damp, but wet, and there is this tar looking crap that sticks to everything. Looks and feels like Cordovan Brown shoe polish. This stuff just stains whatever it touches.

                    Now, I believe this to be an original wheel that

                    Steering wheel repair
                    by Standing Elk
                    Am about ready to start repairs on my steering wheel. Got a couple things to run by you guys.
                    Since the cracks are mostly fairly fine, I am thinking about taking a Dremel tool and just slightly V ing the cracks then filling them with Bondo and finishing from there. Is Bondo a good choice? After finished I plan to prime and spray paint (rattle can) it. Is there a better way? Thanks

                    Mitch, is there a chance of doing this ? It would help me get a friend involved and he is very knowledgable in the early ones. Most of all it would benefit me greatly, selfish I am, and it would possibly get my truck going. Thank you for your consideration on this manner. P.S.- this is serious, but they are really fun to use ! Pat

                    I'm new to this site and have a question for the metal polishers here. First off, I have a 31 Deluxe Roadster that I'm rebuilding. I'm not trying for a show car, just a nice looking driver. I started polishing my stainless parts this winter and the head light and cowl light buckets buffed up beautifully. However, I've started noticing small pits on the top rests and upper stanchions. I've added a...

                    by Snagglewhen
                    My front right (passenger) wheel has recently taken to making a slight groaning sound while backing up. Not always, but sometimes. This sound does not occur when driving forward. I replaced the bearings in this wheel about a year ago with new Timken bearings. Could one of them have gone bad or am I looking at something else here?

                    How to know if wheels (rims) are good?
                    by Curly
                    I am trying to put 5 good 19 inch wheels together for powder coating. How does one determine if the wheels are good? Any tell tale things to look for?

                    i thought I would put them on and spin them to check for straightness, but I don’t know how accurate this might be. I will also check each individual spoke.

                    Thanks in advance....
