On my LA, I have one rim 8"x24"which is rusted out but still have the tire on it and holding air. I have a new blank rim and a set of lug brackets to make me a new rim for my LA. Everything is measured and drilled, my rivets arrived today.
Does anyone have any experience of riveting the brackets to the rim? I am open to suggestions.
My plan is to use my hydraulic 20 ton press to squeeze the rivets.
My rivets are 7/8" long x 7/16" dia. The thickness of the brackets and rim material is 1/4". I need to cut down my rivets. Any ideas how much rivet material should I be pressing?
