Kit #3-6D Installation Instructions
Kit #3-6D Installation Instructions
17" Dodge Dually and Chevy
(It is not necessary to dismount tires to install this kit.)
Dual valve stems on rear go the same direction (right or left) when installing, the outer wheel is turned backwards (so it will go in the opposite direction).
  1. Deflate tires and remove the old stems.
  2. Install front stems as you would any other metal valve stem, do not use thread locker on the nut. Inflate to proper air pressure.
  3. Take curved outer valve stem, remove nut, concaved washer, & flat rubber gasket. Put a drop of thread locker on the threaded stem & insert stem through wheel & install flat rubber gasket, concave washer & nut. Position the stem 1 off center to the right & torque nut to 45" to 55" pounds. Inflate to proper air pressure.
  4. Take long inside valve stem, remove nut, concaved washer, & flat rubber gasket. Put a drop of thread locker on the threaded stem & insert stem through wheel & install flat rubber gasket, concave washer & nut. Position the stem off center to the right & tighten nut to 45" to 55" pounds. Inflate to proper air pressure.
  5. Rebalance all 6 tires. Caution -- when placing the outer rear-dual wheel on and off the balancer make sure valve stem is at 6 o'clock position (at the bottom).
  6. Place both wheels on top of each other on the ground, check to see that the inner wheels valve stem is on the opposite side of the outer valve stem in the same hole. A picture is on backside of this instruction sheet.
  7. If everything is lined up correctly now is the time to install the chrome plastic wheel liner.
  8. Reinstall all wheels on vehicle & torque lug nuts to specifications.
Note
  • This dually kit works with 95% of all simulators on the market today. The other 5% will have to be modified slightly. (If a modification is needed, make a small notch to allow the simulator to clear the outer wheels valve stem.) Do NOT try to modify the outer valve stem.

17" Dodge Dually
The picture to the left shows the final position of the valve stems when they are mounted on the vehicle. Notice both valve stems come through the same hole. Use the blue thread locker that comes with the kit only on the stems with the nut on the inside of the tire.
