Re: Wheel Part?

Possibly the front axle then? You mentioned that you removed it and had a heck of a time doing it. When working on hardware subject to road grime, I've had issues with washers sticking in place just long enough to fall off unexpectedly. I didn't know my M70 had a shim on the front axle until it fell...

Re: Wheel Part?

Dang, that what I am trying to do, is Identity it (grin) 17.6 mm x 31.75 mm x 4.49 mm .692 x 1.248 x .176 And it won't fit over the threaded portion of the rear axle? The rear axle is threaded M14X1.5, and uses an M14 nut and washer. The front may have a M17 shim. My M70 has a shim on the front axl...

Re: What did you do to your Ural today?

I had to drill the heads off a couple of screws the first time I did the clutch on my 07 Patrol. Once the plates and discs were removed I was able to just unscrew the remains with vice-grips with surprisingly little effort.

Re: Wheel Part?

Being more a recipe follower mechanic, this one has me baffled. I found it on the cart I used to do the rear wheel swap last fall ( to studded tire change) (cold, dark etc). Cart got used for other things but strange that something wheel related washer wise would wind up on it. Its a Bellville Wash...

Re: CRAP XIV HEAD COUNT

Man this sucks. Certainly does. Going to be a lootta cabin fever. I've been taking 1 day a week off voluntary like most of the more senior drivers so the new folks can get their share of work, but the other 4 days a week seem fairly "normal" other than a 75% reduction in traffic, and sanitary proce...

Re: Is Riding my Ural During a Global Pandemic Socially Irresponsible?

Guessing it hasn't hit Florida yet. :D From our side of the pond, it's looking like the US is not ready and too slow to respond. For example needs a coordinated federal response, not just left to individual states. I'm also worried about Russia. In one news item a man interviewed in the street said...

Re: WTB light duty pintle hitch and lunette ring.

The smallest ring hitch I have experience with is the M-151 and trailer, but don't recall ever going over 50 mph? Never noticed any handling issues with it either. I've never seen a ring hitch smaller than the 1/4 ton version either, so its probably a moot point. The German WWII hitch is neither a b...

Re: Super Tight Rocker Jam Nuts

When I say "tight", I mean that I had a crow's foot on a breaker bar and was using a good portion of my (not immense) strength to crack each one loose. Truly I was afraid that a rocker or something was going to break before the nuts came loose. That does seem a bit extreme. In my case it was an une...

Re: WTB light duty pintle hitch and lunette ring.

I've heard such criticisms of ring hitches, but I haven't experienced it in all my years of running them. That's at freeway speeds, and gross vehicle weights as high as 105,500 lbs. https://www.fresnobee.com/opinion/readers-opinion/xzgkqw/picture160224139/alternates/LANDSCAPE_1140/triple%20trailer h...

Re: Super Tight Rocker Jam Nuts

I wouldn't assume them being super tight is a sign they weren't checked. When I did the 300 mile service on my M70 after being upgraded to 2020 specs by Sergei at IMWA, the lock nuts were super tight. There isn't a specified torque for them, so its what the mechanic feels is right.

I have 2019 GU. I hooked the tack wire up to the blue/brown wire. All works fine but - the check engine light is on.
Any ideas??
Thanks
Did you check for fault code?
Did you try clearing it?

Re: What did you do ON your Ural today?

I rarely post in this thread because most of my riding is commuting which doesn't seem worth mentioning, but now as an essential worker commuting is the exception rather than the rule......

I rode to work and back home as normal..... :)
