And that, my friends, is how it’s done.
The best part is that somebody likes the job well enough to do it this way.
That is more satisfying to watch than it rightfully should be.
Clearly a job in which there’s no substitute for experience.
Pretty cool. Of course the trailer has to be jacked up to the right height, for the dolly to do the trick. Now I want to see them put the wheel on.
Jack it a bit higher and use the same trolley?
For those who were thinking this and don’t want to walk away disappointed.
Being bone idle, this warms the cockles of my heart.
Meanwhile, whenever I need to mount a wheel or brake disk I sit on the floor and fuss with it and mumble at it for 5 minutes until I get it aligned.
The BMW is particularly frustrating since it has lug bolts and the flat head screws to align the disks are long gone, so in order to mount the wheel I have to get both the wheel and the rotor oriented properly. Spinning one without spinning the other is rather difficult.
In theory, you are supposed to use the rod that comes in the tool kit to help with this problem. In practice it’s fairly useless, and wheel studs are generally better.
My ’78 Audi Fox had lug bolts, and I hated them. What a pain. No wonder they lost two world wars.
lug bolts are the absolute worst. too bad stud conversion kits cost so much.
