Safety
Operator Protective
Equipment
Personal protective equipment helps make tire servicing safer. However, equipment does not take the
place of safe operating practices. Always wear durable
work clothing during tire service activity. Loose fitting
clothing should be avoided. Tight fitting leather gloves
are recommended to protect operator’s hands when
handling worn tires and wheels. Sturdy leather work
shoes with steel toes and oil resistant soles should be
used by tire service personnel to help prevent injury in
typical shop activities. Eye protection is essential during tire service activity. Safety glasses with side
shields, goggles, or face shields are acceptable. Back
belts provide support during lifting activities and are
also helpful in providing operator protection.
Consideration should also be given to the use of hearing protection if tire service activity is performed in an
enclosed area, or if noise levels are high.

COATS 1000/1000D Wheel Balancer • 5
Direct Drive
Balancer Operation
Overview
This machine is a two-plane, microprocessor-based computer
balancer. Any imbalance in a wheel, either static or dynamic, is
resolved into two correction planes (usually the inner and outer
flanges of the wheel) where corrective weights can be applied.
Pressing MODE and selecting the DYNAMIC, ALLOY, STATIC,
or RV mode can change the location of these planes.
Determining the Planes
When the 1000D distance gauge is pulled out and held against
the wheel flange, the computer automatically registers the distance (referred to in these instructions as the A Offset measurement). The computer will "beep" to indicate it has stored the
measured distance. This distance measurement (the Offset)
tells the computer the location of the inner plane of the wheel
for Dynamic balancing.
While the 1000D distance gauge is held in contact with the
wheel flange, the computer also calculates the wheel diameter
(D measurement). The diameter measurement is automatically
entered (along with the offset measurement) when the computer BEEPS. The diameter measurement tells the computer
how far from the center of the hub the weights will be applied.
The offset and diameter measurement principles are the same
for the 1000, however the operator must enter the measurements, instructions on page 8.
When the wheel width is entered into the computer, it is automatically added to the offset measurement to determine the
outer plane of the wheel. The wheel width is entered manually
by the operator as the W measurement.
Balancing a Wheel
When a wheel is spun, the balancer detects any imbalance
present. The computer calculates the weight needed to correct
the imbalance and the location for weight application. The
weight required to correct the imbalance is displayed on the
control panel, and the weight positioning lights assist the operator in positioning the weight application location at top-deadcenter. Weight displays and positioning lights are provided for
both inner and outer planes of the wheel.
The stop-on-top feature of the 1000D is designed to stop the
spinning wheel with the outer weight application location near
top-dead-center, if no imbalance is detected.

Mounting Wheels
Select the most appropriate mounting method for the wheel
you are balancing. Using the proper method ensures secure
mounting and safe balancer operation, and prevents damage to
the wheel.
On most wheels, the inner side of the wheel hub usually has
the most uniform surface for wheel balancing. Always center
the wheel by the most uniformly shaped side of the hub to
achieve the most accurate balance.
Regardless of mounting type, always make sure that the
wheel is forced firmly against the arbor faceplate and that the
hub nut engages the threaded arbor for at least four complete
turns. To assist in centering the wheel properly, rotate the wheel
on the arbor while tightening the hub nut.

Cone
Back Cone Mounting
Most original equipment and steel wheels can be mounted
properly using this method. The wheel is centered on a cone
from the inner side of the hub.
1. Place the cone spring on the arbor with the large end
towards the balancer.
2. Select the cone that best fits the center hole in the wheel.
Slide the cone onto the arbor with the large end towards the
spring.

Wheel Data Entry
Before a wheel can be balanced, the size of the wheel must be entered into the computer. The user enters the
data either automatically or manually.
Wheel Offset - A
This is the distance between the edge of the balancer and the inner
edge of the wheel.
Offset
Touch Second
Surface of Rim
1. For Automatic Entry - Pull the distance gauge out from the side
of the balancer. Rotate it until the handle end of the gauge contacts
the inner wheel flange. Hold the gauge against the wheel until the balancer BEEPS to indicate it has accepted the measurement, which is
displayed above the wheel offset key.
Note: When entering A data automatically, D (wheel diameter) is
also determined and entered.

2. For Manual Entry - Press the wheel offset key. Pull the distance
gauge out in the same manner as outlined for automatic entry. Hold
the gauge against the wheel flange and read the measurement on the
gauge. Use the keypad to enter the measurement. For example, if the
last large number (inch indicator) visible is 6, and the last small number (fraction of an inch) visible is 4, press 6 then 4 on the keypad to
enter 6.4 inches.
Wheel Width - W
This is the width of the wheel measured with the calipers at the rim
flanges.

Calipers
1. Press the wheel width key. If offset and diameter are entered
automatically on the 1000D, the balancer will activate the width key
after the acceptance BEEP.
2. Open the calipers wide enough to reach around the tire. Close
the calipers so both tips contact the rim flanges. Read the rim width
on the calipers.
3. Enter the measurement using the keypad. It is now shown in the
display above the wheel width key.
Wheel Diameter - D
This is the diameter of the wheel at the weight location.
Figure 16 - Wheel Diameter
Automatic diameter entry reads to 3 decimal places internally and
rounds to 0.10-inch values. It is not necessary to convert metric diameter measurements to inches. For manual entry, enter 15.4 for 390
metric wheels, and 15.7 for 400 wheels. The displayed value represents the diameter for weight placement and is not necessarily representative of the actual wheel diameter. A 14-inch wheel may display
13.6 to 14.3 depending on rim lip configuration and the offset used by
the computer.
1. For Automatic Entry - If the wheel offset measurement was
entered automatically, the 1000D has also calculated and entered the
wheel diameter and displayed it above the wheel diameter key.
2. For Manual Entry - Press the wheel diameter key. Locate the
tire size on the tire sidewall and determine the wheel diameter. Use
the keypad to enter the measurement. It is now displayed above the
wheel diameter key. The computer calculates the actual weight placement diameter.

Selecting Balancing Mode
Eight separate balancing modes are available on the 1000D. Select the balancing mode based on wheel type and
customer request. Press the mode key to select the desired balance type. The LED will illuminate to indicate your
selection. In the alloy and static modes, the balancer will automatically adjust the wheel diameter to compensate
for the actual location of the weight(s).
Dynamic Balancing
Alloy 3
The most common mode used for
passenger cars and light trucks.
Selecting this mode tells the balancer
that standard clip weights will be
used on the inner and outer rim
flanges.
RV Balancing
Use this mode when clip weights cannot be used, and hidden adhesive
weights are not requested. Tells the
balancer that you are using adhesive
weights on the horizontal planes on
both the inner and outer sides of the
rim.
Alloy 4
Use this mode to balance larger
wheels that do not require balancing
at 0.5 ounce or below.
Alloy 1
Use this mode when a clip weight
cannot be used on the outer rim
flange, and hidden adhesive weights
are not requested. Attach the adhesive weight to the horizontal plane on
the outer edge of the wheel.
Static
Use this mode when clip weights on
the rim flanges is not possible, or the
customer requests hidden weights.
Tells the balancer that you are using 2
adhesive weights. Inner weight will
be placed on the horizontal plane of
the wheel at the outer edge of the
inside of the wheel. The outer weight
will be placed as far to the front as
possible on the horizontal plane.
This mode balances the wheel
assembly using only a single weight
plane. It does not compensate for
side to side vibration as a dynamic balance would. Use only one adhesive
weight located as close to center as
possible on the inside horizontal
plane. If desired a clip weight maybe
used on the inner flange if 1.5 inches
is added to "D" (wheel diameter).
Match Mount
Alloy 2
Same situation as stated in Alloy 1,
but when a clip weight can be used
on the inner rim flange. Tells the balancer that you are using clip weights
for the inner rim flange, and adhesive
weights for the outer weight. Outer
weight will be placed as far to the
front as possible on the horizontal
plane.
This balancing procedure determines
the optimum positioning of the tire on
the rim so that a minimum amount of
additional weight is required to balance the wheel. This procedure
requires repositioning of the tire on
the rim. After running the Match
Mount procedure, select the desired
balancing mode and balance the
wheel. Use Match Mount when
excessive radial runout is noticed in
the tire and wheel during balancing,
when the customer complains of ride
problems, or when the balancer calls
for weight in excess of 2 ounces on
either plane of passenger car tires in
the Dynamic mode.

Options
Hood Start
The balancer can be set to automatically start the spin
cycle as soon as the hood is lowered completely and the
hood safety interlock systems are engaged. Press and
hold the SHIFT key and press 3. To return the balancer to
normal mode, repeat the key sequence.
Round Off
The default weight measurement on the balancer is 0.25
ounces. The balancer can be set to a non-Round Off mode
that displays weights in 0.01 ounce increments. Press and
hold the SHIFT key and press 6 to toggle between the
Round Off and non-Round Off modes.
Ounce/Gram
In the default mode, the balancer will operate in ounces.
The balancer can be set to operate in grams by pressing
and holding the SHIFT key and pressing 9. Toggle back to
ounces by using the same key sequence. LEDs on the
control panel indicate which weight measurement is currently selected.
Operator A/B
Two operators can utilize the balancer without clearing or
changing each others data. This is handy when one operator is running the Match Mount procedure and the other
operator needs the balancer. If operator A is at a point in
the Match Mount procedure where the wheel is removed
from the balancer, operator B can access the machine by
switching to the other operator memory. When B’s balance is complete, he can toggle the machine back to A’s
memory. All of operator A’s data is still present, and the
Match Mount procedure can be continued without having
to start over. Press and hold the SHIFT key and press 7 to
toggle between the 2 operator memories. LEDs on the
control panel indicate which operator memory is in use.
Clear
This function clears the data in the currently selected
operator memory only. The other memory is unaffected.
Press and hold the SHIFT key and press 2 to clear.
Blank Rim
This feature blanks out the wheel diameter measurement on the control panel display. The balancer continues
to use the measurement even though the display is blank.
This feature is typically utilized when the customer is within view of the balancer, and may become concerned by
the measurement shown for the wheel diameter (typically when metric or odd size wheel diameters are displayed).
Press and hold the SHIFT key and press 4 to blank the display. Repeat the key sequence to reactivate the display.
12 • COATS 1000/1000D Wheel Balancer
Reading the Displays
Weight Displays
The two weight displays (one for the inner plane, and one
for the outer plane) are positioned with a wheel cross section diagram. After spinning the wheel, the balancer will
calculate the weight needed and display it in these displays. The display to the left of the diagram will show the
weight to be applied to the inner plane of the wheel and
the display to the right will show the weight for the outer
plane.
Error messages and system messages will also be
shown in these displays.
Weight Position LEDs
Each weight display includes weight position LEDs.
Located between the weight display and the diagram,
these LEDs indicate the proper location for weight application. After a spin, rotate the wheel until the center position indicator LEDs flash. This indicates that the position
specified by the balancer for weight application is at topdead-center.
Display Messages
Both inner and outer displays will show 0.00 when the
balancer is first turned on or after clearing the memory.
The balancer may also display the following messages:
Err - An error was detected after the start button was
pressed. The error is in one of the wheel measurements
entered into the balancer. Check your measurements and
re-enter as needed.
Err 3 - Circuit malfunction. Call the Hennessy Service
Department at (800) 688-6359.
Hood (hod) - The hood has been raised during the balancing cycle. The balancer will automatically brake to a
stop. The hood must be down with the safety interlock
engaged for the balancer to spin.
Hub - The hub nut has come loose. The balancer will
automatically brake to a stop when the wheel is 13 inches
or larger in diameter. Retighten the hub nut and respin.
Direct Drive
Balancing a Wheel
Procedure
The following steps walk through the balancing procedure.
Do not proceed with these instructions until you have read
and understand the previous sections of this guide (mounting, balance modes, and reading the displays).
1. Turn the balancer on. The power switch is on the rear of
the unit, near the top and to the operator's left.
Note: When turned on, the balancer will activate the same
options that were selected when it was last turned off (hood
start, ounce/gram, etc.).
2. Mount the wheel to be balanced. Use the proper
mounting method as described on pages 6 and 7. Always
remove any weights attached to the wheel.
3. Enter the wheel measurements and select balancing
mode.
4. Set options (hood start, ounce/gram, operator A/B).
5. Lower the hood and press START. The wheel will spin
and then brake to a stop.
Note: Spin will start automatically when the hood is lowered if the hood start option is turned on.
Checking the Balance
After applying the weights indicated by the balancer, respin
the wheel. The displays should read 0.00.
If the balancer indicates an additional weight should be
applied in the same location as the first weight, the first
weight is too small. Correct the first weight and respin.
If the balancer indicates an additional weight should be
applied directly opposite the first weight, the first weight is
too big. Correct the first weight and respin.
If the balancer indicates an additional weight should be
applied at an angle to the first weight, the first weight was
not applied in the correct position. Move the first weight
towards the position indicated for the second weight or add
the second weight as indicated.
After Balance Vibration Problems
If vibration is still present after balancing the wheels and
driving the vehicle on smooth pavement remove the wheels
and recheck the balance. If a wheel is out of balance the
cause may be:
1. A weight has come off the wheel. Remove the other
weights from the wheel and rebalance.
7. Rotate the wheel until the outer position LEDs flash.
2. Tire slippage on the wheel. Remove and remount the
tire using proper tire lubricant and inflate to 40 PSI. Do not
over-inflate. Rebalance the wheel and reduce air pressure to
recommended PSI.
8. Attach the weight specified in the proper location at topdead-center. Refer to the diagrams on the control panel for
weight locations.
3. Stones or other foreign objects caught in the tire tread.
Remove the objects and repair tire as necessary. Check and
rebalance if needed.
9. Rotate the wheel until the inner position LEDs flash.
If the balancer still indicates the wheels are balanced to
within 0.05 ounces on both inner and outer displays, the
problem is not in the balance of the wheels. Check the following possible sources of vibration:
6. Raise the hood.
10. Attach the weight specified in the proper location at
top-dead-center. Refer to the diagrams on the control panel
for weight locations.
11. Lower the hood and press START to respin the wheel.
The wheel will brake to a stop. The weight displays should
now read 0.00. If not, refer to page 11, Checking the Balance
for assistance.
Remember: The more accurate you are in selecting and
positioning the weight, the more often you will balance
wheels with a single spin.
Changing Wheel Information During Balancing
The information entered into the balancer for A, W, and D
can be changed at anytime during the balancing procedure.
Follow the instructions provided earlier for entering the
measurements manually. The balancer will recalculate
weights and positions based on the new measurements.
1. Tire pressure. Bring all tires up to the recommended PSI.
2. Radial or lateral runout in the tire or wheel. Replace the
damaged part.
3. Foreign material inside the tire. Remove the tire from
the wheel, remove the material, and remount. Remove
wheel weights and rebalance the wheel.
4. Imbalanced wheel covers or trim rings. Remove the
wheel covers or trim rings and test drive. If the vibration is
gone, remove the arbor and use the optional Combi-Adapter
to mount the wheel to the balancer. Balance the wheel with
the wheel cover or trim ring attached to the wheel.
5. Incorrectly mounted wheel. Remount correctly.
Changing Balancing Modes During Balancing
6. Damaged wheel bolt holes. Replace wheel.
The balancing mode can be changed at anytime and the
balancer will recalculate weight and position based on the
new selection. Does not apply when switching to and from
Match Mount.
7. Worn universal joints. Replace as required.
8. Drive shaft imbalanced or damaged. Balance, repair, or
replace.
9. Imbalanced brake rotor(s) or drum(s).
10. Suspension out of alignment. Align the vehicle and
replace any damaged or worn parts.

Match Mount
Description
The Match Mount program assists the user in
determining the best possible mating of the tire
and wheel, thereby reducing the amount of additional weight required for balancing. This mating of
tire and wheel normally allows the least amount of
total runout of the assembly, resulting in better
balancing, better ride conditions, and more satisfied customers. Use Match Mount when:
• Excessive radial runout is noticed in the tire
and wheel assembly during balancing.
• The customer complains of ride problems.
The balancer will be idle while the tire is being rotated on the
wheel. During these times, another operator without terminating the
Match Mount procedure can use the balancer. The second operator
selects the other operator memory, performs a balance, and then
returns the balancer to the previous memory. The original operator
can now continue the Match Mount procedure.
As with any balancing procedure, remove any weights attached to
the wheel and inspect the tire and wheel before beginning.
Instructions
1. Mount the wheel to the balancer.
2. Select the appropriate operator memory as required. Make a
note of the memory being used in the event the memory is changed
during the Match Mount procedure.
• The balancer calls for weights in excess of 2ounces on either plane on passenger car tires
in the Dynamic mode.
3. Enter the A, W, and D measurements and select the mode that
will be used for the final balancing.
Match Mount balancing requires loosening both
tire beads and inflation of the tire. You will need to
be trained in the operation of your Coats tire
changer and the dangers involved during bead
seating and tire inflation. Read the operators manual supplied with the tire changer and consult your
supervisor.
5. Wait for the wheel to brake to a stop and for the displays to
show weight readings.
4. Lower the hood and press START.
Does the balancer indicate that 2-ounces or more is required on
either plane of the wheel in dynamic mode? Higher weights may be
indicated when using an alloy mode to compensate for weight location.
If so, advise supervisor or customer to continue with the Match
Mount procedure. DO NOT attach weights at this point.
If not, the Match Mount procedure is most likely not necessary, and
will not improve the balance. Continue to balance the wheel according to the mode selected.
6. If hood start option is on, turn it off now.

the RIM light below the display). The weight in the right display is the
weight imbalance for the tire (as indicated by the TIRE light below the
display).
Use these weights to determine the suitability of the rim or tire.
High imbalance may indicate a rim that is out-of-round or misformed,
or a tire with a bubble or other problem. If the imbalance is excessive, it may be prudent to replace the rim, the tire, or both. If either
is replaced do not continue this procedure. Balance the new tire and
rim and evaluate the readings for Match Mount suitability.

Maintenance and
Calibration
Preventative Maintenance
The balancer requires only minor maintenance to
keep the unit operating properly.
1. Keep the display clean and clear. Use a vaporizing
cleaner only. Do not use cleaners or solvents, which
leave oily or filmy residues behind.
2. Keep the adapters, cones, faceplate, threaded
arbor, pressure cup, and hub nut clean. Grease and
dirt buildup will cause premature wear and inaccurate
balancing. Clean at least once a day with a vaporizing
solvent.
3. Clean the weight tray, accessory post, and pegs.
Weights stored in a dirty tray will pick up grease and
dirt which may alter their weight or keep them from
securely attaching to the wheel. Use a vaporizing solvent to clean the tray, pegs, and post.
4. Keep the area around the balancer clear. Remove
any tools or other items that are leaning against the
balancer. Keep the area under the balancer clear as
well. Remove any items that may cause the balancer
to not sit level.
5. Use only COATS accessories. Accessories from
other manufactures may not fit or function properly,
and may damage the balancer.
Calibration
The balancer utilizes a "self calibration" scheme. To
keep your balancer in proper calibration, this calibration procedure should be performed once a month, or
whenever the accuracy of the balancer is questioned.
1. Mount a 14, 15, or 16-inch diameter x 6 - 6 1/2inch wide steel wheel assembly on the balancer. It
should be suitable for mounting using the back cone
method and have a properly inflated tire.
2. Enter A, W, and D wheel measurements.
Note: The A entry must be between 5.0 and 8.0, and
W entry must be between 5.5 and 7.0. If the wheel
you have mounted does not meet these requirements, select a different wheel and try again.
3. Remove any weights attached to the wheel.
4. Press and hold SHIFT and press 1.
5. Lower the hood and press START.
6. Raise the hood, rotate the wheel until the outer
weight positioning LED flashes, and attach a 4 ounce
weight (100 grams) at top-dead-center.
Note: It is critical that this weight be placed accurately to achieve proper calibration.
7. Lower the hood and press START.
8. Raise the hood and remove the weight.
The balancer is now calibrated. If a mistake is made
during this procedure, turn the balancer off, then back
on, and start the procedure over again.
