My Samson wheel gizmo and my HVR gizmo both don't work for these wheels.

I saw the ARP recommendation on Facebook to sandwich it between two spur gears but that isn't working for me.
 
What am I doing wrong?

On my Hudy I push the tire up against the aluminum stop on the axle then put the tire on, then push a crown gear up against it as tight as I can then true lightly.

Same concept as Cap except I push out the bearings and install oillites and then apply and retain positive pressure with an old tiny rear hub to lock in place. Works great.

I have good info that an ARP mandrel is in the works. It will fit Hudys.

 

My source is reliable.

Take a piece of two-sided tape and poke a hole in it and slide it on the tire truer axle and then squeeze the collar up against it tightly.That should hold it for you...

No. :good: But it did allow me on long enough to scroll down to the info I wanted. Didn't work anyway...

The ARP tool works great!

If you look on Facebook and search for ARP Products you will see a video made by Joseph "Chuby" Vincent. The axle replaces the one for your hudy. This set up will true both tires at the same time. The hub on the left with the pin holds the tires. The hub on the right retains the tires. The axle will not fit in a back track truer snug as the axles are slightly different size but the hub with the pin will work on the alxe for back trac. You will just be limited to trimming one tire at a time. Sorry, can't send a pic now as I'm stuck (as in waiting for a rescue boat lol) somewhere on the Pirates of the Carribean ride at Disney.
