Thanks Roger.

I found out something interesting while looking at the code section pertaining
to the 2000# wheel load. I don't know if any of you who has read or responded
to this thread had ever seen or thought about it. It is just at the end of the
sentence where it says that the 2000# should be applied to an "area 20 square
inches(12900 mm2)". The 12900 mm2 is equal to 20 in2 and not 20"x20" square
area. That means 20 in2 or 4"x5", or 4.5"x4.5" area. !!!! :-( And, ofcourse,
the 8.9KN is equal to 2000#.

Any comments?
