As a supplement to the Service Manual, I found this document on the internet: Jaguar Tire Alignment.
Knock-off (Spinner) Tool
I have always used a lead hammer to tighten or remove the spinners on my Big Healey and had planned to do the same for the Jaguar. However, in watching a YouTube video by DaveJaguar66, I was introduced to a new tool that Lionel Roberts at Cjservices1931@aol.com makes for this purpose. It is machined from aluminum and therefore softer than the chrome spinner and it uses a 1-1/2″ socket and a long tommy bar. No more banging with a hammer and risking a missed blow striking bodywork! I have now tried the tool and love it. Lionel makes different size tools to accommodate differences in spinner size. As far as I am concerned this is a must-have tool.
So, now instead of a lead hammer, I will be carrying a tommy bar, a 1-1/2″ socket and Lionel’s tool in my boot!
No decisions on wheels and tires yet.
