Model B Rear Wheel Clips

Report to Moderator

The eccentric bolts on the left rear wheel of my Model B will not tighten the clips as tightly against the rim as they should. The result is that the clips slip on the rim slightly and are wearing shiny spots so the problem will only get worse over time.

My question: Short of getting a new rim, what is the best fix to the condition? I have thought about two solutions: 1. Have the clips welded up and ground back down to fit the rims - this may be expensive. 2. I have some sheet aluminum that I have considered cutting into strips and using as a spacer between the wheel clips and the rim. What are your thoughts on the problem?

Thanks for your help!

Rick, aluminum in contact with steel will be a corrosion problem. Better to use a steel shim, maybe something you could cut out of a tin can?

Do you have two per wheel or four? I bought a B from a guy that couldn't get them tight and he had put the solid ones opposit each other and the adjustable lugs opposit each other. The one C I bought had four adjustable lugs per wheel. I also have a C out back that has shimms under the lugs.

I have 2 adjustable ones per wheel. I have the two fixed ones beside each other with one of these engaging the driving lugs on the rim. The two eccentrics are opposite these.

What I may do is find another eccentric clip and bolt and put a third one on the wheel to see if that will help.

Thanks for the idea.

Original issue was 2 eccentrics per wheel. More can be added as needed. We stock them
& may have some used ones.
