Note on Wheel Modifications - these *only* need to be done on early Soccerball/EMS wheels to fit mid 1978 & later 99s & 900s. All other wheels will bolt up to any 99 & 900. Centering may be an issue with some, and the center caps (see next item) - 900 alloy wheels after the Inca to 1987 may not properly fit the front of the 99 & 900 up through 1980 (possibly later on the 99). The wheel bolts up fine, however, the nut that holds the hub and CV together may protrude far enough to prevent mounting of the center cap. The only solution is to convert to 1981 or later 900 front spindles (hub, steering knuckle, wheel bearing, CV). Rear axle fit is fine. [Again, Thanks to Larry West!]
Note on Nuts and Bolts: Different nuts & bolts may be required for older wheels. Incas, Soccerballs, TRX & Shelby wheels use a flat-seat (shouldered) nut. All later Alloy wheels for the C900 use conical-seat nuts. The proper nuts must be used with the wheels. Also, there were, for a time, two different bolts for the later wheels. The short bolts for the steel wheels must not be used with Alloys. Long bolts can be used on either steel or alloy wheels. [Again, Thanks to Larry West!]
