How to remove a Centerlock...OMFG

Just some eye candy for you guys as I had a flat tire and my father had to remove the wheel to take it to get a tire remounted...

4' breaker bar, check
3.5" socket, check
1" extension, check







Pulled from her hibernation to go back to Zuffenhaus for the MOTEC retune..now on a truck with Intercity Lines tucked in tightly for the ride...

Hope you use a torque wrench to tighten it, with appropriate torque, should be around 470-500NM.

Are those the Zuffenhause/Alton center locks?

Its actually 427 ft lbs or tq, and no these are centerlocks from '77 although the Zuffenhaus set is on the list as these need to be rethreaded anyways.

Ha!

I went to the historics this weekend at Eastern Creek, there was a Ferrari F1 car stuck in the pits for an hour with the driver in the seat and three mechanics scrambling all over the wheel with their 2-meter (6 foot) wrench and tripod socket holder. They never did get the wheel off and wen I wandered off the driver was getting out and they were putting it back on the trailer (with the other F1 Ferrari.) Imagine you day in your Ferrari F1 toys ruined because the mechanics couldnt change the tire...how cranky is the driver in pic #3?!?!?

Anyone know more specifics on this car? It looks to be a v6 turbo.

I'm fairly sure that's Gerhard Berger's 1987 car.

Sorry to hijack your thread Gabe.

Brother - no such thing as a hijack! One this is if the hubs are hot from running (or up to temp) then if you don't get the nut off quick enough it will sieze on the hub and not be able to come off.

This is why porsche always had a spare upright (hub, brake setup, coilover etc) in case this happened during a pit. Nice Pics!!!!

Hope the guys working the wrench on that Ferrari knew that the left and right side nuts have opposite threads. (joking, but known to happen)
Bernie
BTW, sorry to hijack, SEE the size of the intake side of that turbo.

Paul was there too and he whispered to me "Mate, I think the right side comes off anti-clockwise" but neither of us was willing to interrupt these very serious, frustrated and expensive crew.

The car had run earlier but had cooled down and this was before his outlap for the second run of the day.

Oh, and I can use that next-last pic for the "Ultimate Girlfriend and Ferrari F1 Car Stuck In The Pits In The Bleeding Hot Sun With Lots Of People Standing Around" thread that I am sure will eventually be started. ;-)

My F1 book pegs it as a 1985 156/85 Stefan Johansson.

This is the first year Ferrari flipped the heads so they could package the twin turbos outboard.

LOL Gabe. I go through this everytime i take the wheels off my 914/6.

Yeah, i did the dumb-azz tighten instead of loosen routine once when i first mounted them

You need to get an F1 style air wrench for the shop... very cool and takes them on/off in no time.


More readily available and similar to what was used by the factory

Gabe,
Do you have one of these "tripods" to hold the socket? Even thought it didnt seem to help these guys it did seem like a good way to keep the socket on the nut and perpendicular to the breaker bar.

Wow, Gabe...that's one huge socket and breaker bar! I'm glad I don't carry that in my 930. Maybe a hammer and punch would be lighter, eh?

Here is what we use. It reduces the length of the breaker bar that you have to carry around. Only $391.25 from your friends at Snap-On.

Haha nice work kid!

John, naw don't have one of those fancy tripods, but my father is looking for a torque multiplier like 500SL posted up. The one he saw was for 3,000 ft lbs so this one from snap on looks like the ticket.
