The way the garages do it is get the bead into the centre of the wheel as it is smaller and should make it easier to lever over the edge. Use a large vice or similar to pull the beads into the middle; standing on the tyre may do it or perhaps use a piece of wood?

Re reading this post it does not read well; I have not taken offence these are just the facts  ;)

Photos take up a lot of space so they are kept small. I can not remember the server settings now but there is a limit set to upload a maximum file size of 2mb. This could probably increase but was set low to stop people overloading the server with big files. It probably also goes back to dialup where it used to take a lot of time to upload 2mb!

If you want larger photos etc. you can always upload them to a photo hosting site and link to them from here.

I have just checked and we currently have 3,275 files which equates to 431mb on the server.

It will be something to do with your EXIF data. Most sensors are of a landscape format which is the default view. If you tip your camera through 90deg there should be a sensor in the camera that marks this into the EXIF header. For some reason this could have been removed from your image. Also some software auto rotates to the EXIF setting and others do not.

Usually if you just open your image in some editing software and rotate to your required angle and then save it sorts itself out.

I am very sorry to hear that; I found a problem with the ordering form and it should be working now.

There are instructions on how to add images to your post in the General discussion section.

You will have to resize the photos on your computer and there are lots of programs that can do it. I used to use this:

If you want a simple way to do it something like this may be what you are looking for ( I have not tried it out ):

You can upload your photos to somewhere like flikr and link to them or save directly to the forum.

The image size is restricted for a few reasons like server space and fitting into the post.

If you check out the General discussions section there are some image upload instructions.

If you are using a site like photobucket you need to use the correct link method. If you make a mistake I can probably correct it and hopefully tell you what went wrong.

I am no electronics expert either but my thoughts are:

Top left will go to the LED and then the battery
Top right will go to the motor and then the battery

Bottom left will go to the second LED and then the battery
Bottom right will go to the motor and then the battery

You may be getting some strange behaviour with your circuit as you could have both LED's and motors with power on at the same time - or is this a diagram error?

Currently you have the motor going through the LED which may damage the LED.

It was now that I realised that it would have perhaps have been a good idea to build and fit the brake assembly.
Thanks for that post; it made me laugh reading it.

For me Gearstick returned six results, tunnel returned twentysix and gearstick tunnel returned one.

I do not how you had three results!
