    Pulled the radiator out of Moonshine to force myself to install an intercooler (finally):

    Hoping to get to this project this week:

    Shouldn't have been shopping, but due to the dryrot of my swampers, and the hole I put in the sidewall of one at GSMTR this year, I jumped on a set of used 42s that were a good deal.

    42s next to my old 39.5s. Neither tire has a rim in this shot:

    Why do you need and intercooler and bigger tires? Where can't you go now that you need more (safe) power and bigger tires?

    Johnny, what size intercooler are you able to fit? I'm thinking I might go larger when I get back.

    It's a powerstroke intercooler out of a van I think. Gonna be a tight fit, but I think it'll work. It's larger than the opening in the core support, so the opening will be enlarged.

    I plan to groove the ones that have less tread and run them on the rear. Thinking that I'll leave the others untouched for now.

    Mounted the 42s tonight. It's a lot of work.

    One had this inside the tire. Thought it was interesting:

    Thought I would document the process to mount tires on H1 rims for next time so I don't have to spend 3x as long on the first tire figuring it out again. This does not cover cleaning the tire seating surfaces, or o-ring, so make sure you do that before starting with this procedure.

    Step 1: Grab two chunks of 6x6 and put them on the ground.

    [​IMG]

    Step 2: Put the tire on the chunks (opposite sides) then place the PVC insert on top. Lubricate with soapy water:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Step 3: Place chunk of 4x4 inside tire on one side and bear down on the PVC insert while prying the bead up till the PVC insert is inside. Pound the PVC insert with a deadblow to rotate it:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    ##Note the carved out part of the PVC insert.

    Step 4: Place inside of rim on chunk of 6x6. Lean tire and PVC insert on your legs, over the inside of the rim, so you can align the carved out part of the insert inbetween any two studs.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Seated:

    [​IMG]

    Step 5: Outer half of rim valve stem aligns with the carved section of PVC insert. The carved out section allows air from the valve stem to enter the tire cavity.

    Step 6: Install all nuts by hand and pound them home with an impact. Note the gap between the upper half and lower half of the rim. Tighten the outer half of the rim evenly so the tire and insert seat properly. Start:

    End:

    [​IMG]

    Step 7: Put 10psi of air into the tire and check for leaks.

    [​IMG]

    Step 8: Torque all nuts, in a star pattern, to ~100ft/lbs.

    [​IMG]

    Step 9. Repeat steps 1-8 at least 3 more times and you get a set of mounted tires:

    Hope this helps someone, someday.

    That does not look like fun at all. I have trouble moving around 35" tires :eek:

    Looks like we have the same wheels. What's the maximum psi you're comfortable putting in the tires with those wheels?

    I never put more than 25psi in these, but that's because I don't run them on the street. 99.99% of the time they see between 0 and 6 PSI.

    I'm only asking because if i remember correctly, you can only go up to 30 psi on those wheels.
