Mounting the Right Rear Wheel

Stage 42.1

Push the Tyre Valve onto the pin of the Rim (Outside).

We have built these wheels before, the steps are the same:

Stage 42.2

The Rear Right Tyre has the words ‘inside’ written on one side and ‘outside’ written on the other. Push this rim through the ‘outside’ of the tire:

Stage 42.3

Fit the Rim (Inside) through the ‘inside’ side of the tire matching the pins to the holes of the Rim (Outside).

Stage 42.4

Retrieve your Chassis assembly. Slide this wheel assembly over the right end of the Rear Axle assembly and secure it into place using one (1) IM screw through the Washer and then through the wheel and into the axle.

Stage 42.5

Push the Hub Cover into the center of the wheel:
