Latest video:
Taking apart the old struts with spring compressors to see how many of them are still usable and start hacking and modifying them for bigger ATV tires, custom rims and Volkswagen Golf 1 rear axle springs. The rims I'm using are original Peugeot Partner 14" steelies that I modified quite a bit to make them work with the Kenda Executioner 28" ATV tires on original Peugeot struts. I'm also fabricating a functional tire bead breaker out of scrap metal which I attached to the workshop ceiling support post so I don't have to drill into the floor to anchor it. Now I can break tire beads on various wheels.
This is part of a series of a four wheel drive utility vehicle build to lessen the work load on my trusty 2002 Honda Foreman Rubicon TRX500FA. This partially answers the question "Why?" but for those who want to ask "why don't you just buy a side-by-side instead of building one?" I just want to say - I'm not made of money. Side-by-sides are ridiculously expensive, even the car I drive around daily is worth less (not worthless though!), hell, it is even worth less than my 2002 Honda ATV.
"How much HP will it have?" - the 1.4 litre FWD petrol engine I'm planning on using has 55 kw and this will not change, but the torque will be tripled via the BMW differentials I'm using to transfer power to front and rear axles.
"It will be too heavy!" - this project just like the firewood processor project does not have to float. And a heavier vehicle will handle better anyway when hauling heavy loads.
Stay tuned for future episodes! Thanks for watching!

Have no such facilities to do something that size, even if it fits a light trailer. A little tank for children would be nice to do. Something like a overshooted cartoon version of a T-34. Maybe using atv engine-gearbox, with reverse possibility.

I want to see a tracked vehicle with hydraulic differential steering. Use a pair of similiar diffs from independent suspension rwd cars, put them side to side and use them as planetary gearsets by turning inner flanges in opposite directions using hydraulic motors. So the moving power comes in equally on both diffs and goes out equally from outer flanges, unless speed differential is being put on the inner flanges. With a proportional valve (from a power steering?) it should make a smooth steering vehicle. Only minor problem is that steering works wrong ways when reversing. 4/2 valve on reverse light switch will undo that. Maybe it is necessary to put better bearings in the differentials satellite gears, casings fully filled with oil with separate reservoir etc.

This gave me an idea to simply ratchet strap a bead breaker to a tree, instantly adjustable height no solid mounting needed. I was going to build something akin to one of those modified harbor freight tyre machines but only wanted to cement a square pipe in the ground flush with my driveway, the problem would have been how to stop it lifting when using the bead breaking attachment, now i can just make the bead breaker to strap to a tree and continue with my plan to mount the square tube in the ground to fit the manual tyre machine into.

Those wheels look fantastic, but could you have achieved the same results with wheel spacers? Or did you need a LOT of space? I guess since it’s not a road going vehicle, they don’t have to end up dead nuts perfect.

To aid to get that tire on the rim it would be a good deal to put a chunk of steel or something under the tire to push the tire lip up so it'll go into the drop center of the rim. By the way I would probably look for different tires than those atp mud lites those things suck in the mud. I've never been stuck so much before in my life

Method I've always used for bead breaking is to lay the tyre flat, put a long-ish length of 6x2 on the tyre sidewall as a ramp, then drive up it slowly with a heavy truck. Once the weight of the truck starts to be transferred to the sidewall the beads pop off with no damage and no drama.

I cut out the center of the front wheels on a tractor one time and welded the in a set of ford truck rims cause i wanted something wider and that was cheaper and easier to find find when replacing tires.. I really like this dudes style. He takes scrap metal and what other people would consider junk and repurposes it into cool useful stuff. He is quite the engineer as well... He has WAAAY better tools to work with in his shop then i do though. 😞

What happen to the last wheels that you cut apart to make wider? If you have room for tire chain then and only then you have enough room between strut and tire, and thats why I dont like struts, double A frame is best, then any shock with spring will do. Throw the strut out the window.........

I need to put something on my bead breaker to stop the tyres being ejected when I'm trying to break the beads on stubborn wheels. I haven't decided whether to make an adjustable loop to restrain the wheel or just go the simpler route and put a bolt down bit of 3" angle iron or similar. I was half expecting to see the tyre you removed to cause difficulties but it seems standing on it was enough.

Those rims look great the way you modded them, only thing is they should be wider for the Executioners. They are too "crowned" when they are mounted up. Executioners have much better traction when the tread portion is more of a flat profile. I have run through 2 sets of these tires on my rhino and while they are a heavy tire, they offer very good traction in most conditions.

Lots of time consuming work there, well done. Did you loose some video footage? Looks like a bit of a gap in production or you may have edited it out. I'm a big fan of lots of detail so i don't mind a long video. Is there any thing happening with the amphibious vehicle? that was a great project that just needed some tweaking to be awesome.
