So decided to remove the wheel, take off the tire and fix the tube and rim and get it back going again. Started on Friday.
|It's only flat on the bottom|
|The rim has rusted near the valve stem.|
|The tire has rusted to the rim and "breaking the bead" is very difficult. Driving another tractor onto the tire sometimes will break the bead--but not this one.|
|The tube is out--need to clean the rust off and patch it and make sure it is reusable. Tubes for tractor tires of this 11.2x36 are somewhat rare and cost about $60 plus shipping.|
