Don't bother fighting with the wheel, unless you really need to remove it. They fit on a Morse 3/4" tapered shaft and, as has been said, can be a bitch to get off. It's not adjustable, in any case, as the shaft has a single keyway, not a spline.

Bugger. I was assuming it had some sensible arrangement like splines so I could stick it in the straight ahead position (or one of them anyway!) take the wheel off and pop it back on in a different position....

Ah well, that's one less job to do, more time to repair the tubes next time it bursts then, which ought to be about next Sunday

Thanks

Stephen,

Is this a bit of a record for you staying rigid.

Yeah, I have found if you don't use it it doesn't go flat as often, but that defeats the object a bit as I was expecting to have it in the water for the summer a month ago and the average is 2 days out and needing more work. Roll on a Mac 570, nice indestructable polythene boat with 18mm thick tubes Trouble is here, it is often windy during the day and calm in the evenings so I'm missing out on a whole lot of early evening boating.....
