How does a Wolf wheel carrier work?

Hi,

Sorry to be so ignorant. I've acquired this Wolf wheel carrier and had expected it to be self explanatory but I'm not too sure how it works. I'm guessing from photos I've seen that the black metal plate bolts to the wehicle and the tyre sits in the cradle created when you then pick the 2 loose ends up - but how do these fasten - and to what - and what does the large U bolt do?

Is mine missing something or is it just me?!

Help...

I don't have access to Wolfs on a daily basis. We still have old 2 1/2 NA engines. Will try and get to other depts in the week and get some pics if I can. You'll have to bear with me it might take a couple of days.

Only if it's not too much hassle - but thanks :)

Jos thats not the wheel carrier thats the cr*p modification they brought out to allow one person to lift the wheel onto the carrier without hurting their poor back, wheels being a two person lift and all that H&S stuff now!

The black metal plate goes under the actual wheel mounting cylinder, this cylinder is attached to the cage, the wheel sits on the cylinder than a large lid goes over the top of the cylinder and is bolted on to hold the wheel in place.

Another mod they brought out as was an extension for the tyre valve as the tyre is mounted external rim side in and you coudln't check the tyres pressures without removing the wheel! - theres good practical design for you!

I've just got one of these as well, brand new in the bag.

anyone interested in it? £30?

Not wishing to get into a fire sale but you can have mine for a tenner plus postage - it's been used (not by me) but isn't damaged...
