4 - Upgraded Needle Axles
10 - Retainer Beads (only four are used at a time)
1 - Installation Tool
Easier Installation - No need to drill tiny holes for the needle axles. These axles fit into standard axle slots or holes (drilled with a #44 drill bit). The installation tool is used to press them into place.
Easy Cleaning and Re-lube - The retainer beads can be easily removed to allowing cleaning and re-lubing of the wheels and axles.
Polish the axles with 5101-Axle Polish, or use the two finest papers in our 5100-Axle Polishing Kit.
Select four beads that fit snuggly onto the axle shafts.
Prepare the axle hole or slot by reaming with a #44 drill bit.
Press each axle into place using the installation tool.
Apply lube to an axle; we recommend 5106-Kryox 100.
Place a wheel onto the axle with the dish-side of the wheel facing the car body.
Press a bead onto the axle shaft. Use a gap gauge to set the distance between the car body and the wheel. No glue is required for the bead.
Repeat steps 5 to 7 for the other three wheels.
To remove the wheels, grasp the retaining bead with pair of pliers, then twist and pull.
