got tires mounted with spoons but needed a shot of ether ("cosby sauce") sprayed inside and lit off to get them to pop and seat along with a ratchet strap..
Tried Penray and another brand but the Deere brand can is the best kaboom for the buck.
Went to steel dealer to buy some cold rolled round for a big handtruck repair

I use mine all the time on these mower and tiller tires that seam to go flat and fall off the rims after they set for very long.

the tires in question were 16x8" front tires off a old Deere riding mower..small ones are a PITA...so I cut the old ones off with the bandsaw and a sawzall,careful not to nick the wheel..they were original on the tractor from 1969, stiff as a board and dry rotted, i'd been running them without wind in them for years..finally the sidewall gave out on one at the start of mowing season this year so I decided it's time to replace them..repacked the wheel bearings and she's back in service now with some fresh yellow Deere painted wheels..lookin sassy

Sonny Isnt it amazing how some people call you about a Marketplace item you have for sale and want to talk you down on the price even tho they've never even seen it in person yet? -not as bad a Craigslist but it's getting close

GOTTA love the public!!!!!! Dont know how most of them survived! Latest question is what number is on the Allis segment wheel weights!! --didnt think that made any difference since they cast iron and weigh a bunch.
nother was i'll take the tires but my niece will come get them for me at 7 pm !--ya right! never showed up.
the fav scammer always wants the phone # so he can call and talk about the stuff! --- nuttin to talk about,---- just bring the cash and take the shit!! simple as that!! LOL!
Probably should have just held an auction and been done with it, but wanted to sell out privately if possible and that might have been a mistake!

People are stupid and when you try to sell stuff privately it's a pain. That's why I took my 24 ft cabin cruiser down because I got tired of jackasses I'll be back tomorrow to get it and never showing up and all that crap. just over it.
On vacation in Niagara falls for a week 😁

I grew up 60 miles from here. 4 years ago my father-in-law passed away right at the start of covid and I hit that deer I'm pretty sure I posted the pictures up on the site with my truck in progress.

Think I finally got the leak fixed on the yoke for the drive shaft too. Weather report it's 20° warmer in Western New York than it is in Virginia Beach Virginia how's that for snafu weather.

yup I used to do that Sonny but amassed so much C-R-A-P in my life I had to clean out..an overload of crap that I didnt need in the first place,feels good to throw junk away after a decision making process..so now it has to be really exceptional for me to bid+buy..but that's just me

I have been able to re-sell a LOT of the stuff on marketplace for a profit, so actually on the last sale the F-350 didnt really cost me anything after I sold a bunch of stuff to pay for it . Usually dont happen that way but gotta get lucky once in a while! LOL!
This time I got a couple 1-hp 3-phase motors to attempt a rotary converter, PLUS a couple 2 hp 1 phase with big shafts, so maybe I can rig one of them up on each lathe. Some odd speed reducers, etc nobody would bid on , so a 2 dollar bid got them. Have no idea what they were from/for but might use some of them for a project down the road! ( like I have time for that!)

In regards to seating mower tires, I've used this tip with pretty good success. Wasn't able to get 8" wide tires to seat on a rim that had 10" on it, but as long as the tires are the right size for the rim I can usually get them to go.

I hadn't thought of that, got to give that a try. I just did tires on the cabin cruiser trailer. came in the mail so they were a bitch to get seated even with my bead seater. Anytime I get tires online they tape and tie them get them so damn out of shape it's almost impossible to get them to take a bead, But with a lot of patience I always win.

Had some smashed together that way too! THAT is when I bit the bank and bought the CHEETA! lol! Its paid for itself many times over. If tires go flat sitting and pull away from the rims, you can blow them back on . Got a couple here that dont have any holes in them but they go flat quite often. I dont use them that much so I put up with them. should just go buy tubes for them, BUT todays tubes are not much better than the junk chimna tires are!
