Thanks all for your responses.
The problem I am have is trying to keep the brake caliper still and up tight against the swing arm so i can slide the wheel spaces between the swing arm end/brake caliper and the rotor between the brake pads. I need one hand to hold the brake rotor still and two hands to lift the rear wheel into place. Thats three hands. If somehow the brake rotor could be held in place then it wouldn't be so bad for me.
I am not new at this, I have been riding for 40+ years and have changed many tires. But this set up is not good. I will figure out something.

Thanks again

If you don't know where your going don't lead!
