Re: Can anyone find or post video of ......

Im right here, been waiting lol. Now let me check it out.
And thanks ahead of time
OK that was great ! Thanks more than you know, and when I get home tonight from work Im gonna watch it many more times and that triple wheel job was wild! Never thought I would see that.
But thanks again and also I would have never thot about measuring from bottom of bolt head to get true size but from now on thats gonna be how I do it.
Gotta get going but thanks again and I will see it many times tonight.
And congratulations on being the very first person to make such a video to.

I want to echo what Gerrard stated - that was extremely nice of you to take the time to make that video! You guys that have been 'doing Gravelys' for a long time know all of the in's and out's with these fine machines; others of us are new BUT are very capable and willing students. Something seemingly simple can be rather intimidating if one has never tackled that particular project before - a detailed video can remove any concerns! Gerrard and I came along to our Gravely ownership not too far apart and we, if I can speak for you too Gerrard, often rely on the guidance that you seasoned pros so graciously provide. Thank you very much - we are extremely thankful that you are here!!!

You're 100% right Fireant and I bet we were just 2 or 3 weeks apart from being new owners and latched on to the hobby and love for these machines for sure.
And my son has a knack for them to now so thats a whole nother batch of them.

Oh heck you sure helped alright and thanks for actually putting a video up of it. Like I said before I can hear all of the instructions on how to do something but nothing works better than actually seeing it happen, and your's measured 5 1/2" as well so I breathed a sigh of relief when that happened to.
Amd like I said previously I would have never thought of measuring by starting under the head of the bolt, is that SOP for getting a correct measurement on a bolt?
Again a thousand thanks!

Re: Can anyone find or post video of ......

Im gonna have to find somewhere to sand or shell blast these things or just wait till I feel better or something ( back is killing me along w/everything else. Im not a healthy person anymore) but anyhow I grinded on these for about an hr. today and got most of the bad stuff off of the outside but haven't hit inside yet till I figure out the best way. I wanna at least get some primer on them till the weather gets better for more than one day a week.
The 'nick' that is on one of them in the pic was there when I removed them and I hope it wont mean anything real bad because I sure wanna use them. Heck I'll use a soft washer and a harder one on it and hope it will be OK because I sure dont wanna buy any of them when I have 2 right here, not at $100 a pr. anyway.
Oh yea I almost forgot, check out this hose, turns out it aint so good after all and looks like it was just a curve in another hose wich I like because it tells me there are hoses out there I can pay $8-9 for and cut the curve I need out as opposed to paying 50 to 60 bucks for one.
Kinda wish the previous owner wouldnt have cut if off with a maddock tho. lol.
Well here's some pics of what Im talking about from a little while ago.

Re: Can anyone find or post video of ......

Two threaded rods is what I use to hold adapter and inner tire in place. The first long bolt then goes in the remaining hole.

That sounds like a great idea and think I do just that, they sell those things by the foot at most hdwre and Home Depot type stores.
And I dont think Im gonna worry to much about those adapters because cast iron takes paint from a brush pretty darn good I know because I tried it on one of my hubs and it looks great and like the adapts they wont really be seen like a gas tank or hood or something.
So Im gonna clean them up a bit more and shoot a coat of primer on them ala can and then brush on the Red Devil or Rustoleam whatever it is I bought out there. And thanks for that all thread idea , its a good one.

Re: Can anyone find or post video of ......

Gerrard,
Earlier in this thread I mentioned that I was not able to find any Gravely torque specifications for the 3/8"-16 bolts. This morning, while looking for something else, I found this:

It came from here - https://www.gravelymanuals.com/pdf/C...n_19741100.pdf and has both the in-lb and ft-lb values.

When you store adapters put bolts into the threaded casting holes to prevent rust.

I think your table says to torque them to 100 in-lbs.
And a thousand thanks for the PDF manuals because I will use those time and again. Prob is I have to buy another ( fill in blank w/ur own very profound word/s) torque wrench and man I hate to do that because it took me for ever to find one that wasn't $50+ but was like $35 I think and its about useless to me because of the inch-lbs to ft. lbs. conversion table that I cant make heads or tails of.
I would love to find one that cost $20 and was for normal people to read.
What ever happened to the ones that had a long thin rod or "pin" looking thing that was the length of the wrench? It started at the top of the ratchet of an affair and came to a point down at the bottom of it where there was a lbs. table. And when the rod went to 20 lbs. you stopped if you needed 20 lbs. of torque.
By the looks of them they couldnt have been to precise but you came close I would imagine, better than nothing. I dont know what to do about it really.
And wasnt there ones out there that you would set to the poundage you needed and then they would go limp so to speak? Where in the h311 are all of these tools at? Geesh...

Yea thats a good one to, I was thinking about doing something to the holes the other night.
See I dont have my new bolts yet and the ones I took out are so corroded I dont want them within 3 feet of them lol. I will prolly get a bore brush and slop some anti-rust stuff or grease on it and twist them in there as to clean them untill Im ready to use them then I'll clean the threads up w/a tap n die set I have. Something will be done for sure because those bolts that came out was as bad as Ive ever seen.

Re: Can anyone find or post video of ......

So what about nits and washers?
As you can see in my pics the rust and corrosion that was on/in my rims I dont even remember if the long bolts had nuts and washers on them, I dont remember them being on them but why would'nt they have them? It dosen't make a lot of sense to me to have a 1/4 to 1/2 of threaded bolt sticking out of behind the wheel without a nut being on them.
So whats the poop? Anyone know?

Somewhat similar to what I do. One slotted cut off long bolt ( homemade stud ) in the top hole. Install spacer and bolts ( 2 ). Remove top slotted stud and install third bolt.
