I purchased a project 1967 Caravel
and am picking it up this weekend. I went out a few weeks ago and paid for it but the tires were dry rotted and one side brakes were locked up.
A few questions for ya'll:
1. Can i use a 205/65/15 tire? Seems like there are plenty of 65's out there. More choices.
2. Do I need to stick with a 205/75/15 or 225/75/15? The rims have the original bias tires on them.
3. One side brakes seem stuck. Hub will barely turn. P.O. says when they pulled it they "locked" up. Im guessing the electric brakes engaged. Anyone have any tricks to unlocking the electric brakes? Is there star adjuster on the back of the hub? Should i use a hub puller? Sledgehammer?
