Don't give up, it's far too much fun once you can drive it.

I would too, Glen. If I knew how to transfer video I would have some stuff to show you guys.

I've got the Bantam about 2 hours away from running too. So things are slowly coming together.

I took my truckload of scrap metal in to the yard and got 80 bucks for the metal. I went into the office because that was way too much. She told me the yard guys know what they are doing so I didn't argue.

Bob, set you up a flickr account, then you can upload your video to there and post a link here to it. That's what I do....

It was time to drag the body out of its resting place and wash a year's worth of dust off of it. Got a few mods to make and probably a fresh coat of John Deere Yellow. Will paint the inside too so it isn't so dreary.
I haven't mounted a tire by hand in a hunnert years. But out came the antique tire irons and the soap and after applying a bunch of different MMA holds on it the cycle tire finally went on the 16" Anglia rim. Still holding air after several hours.

I look into that, Bama

Wow!
I had some fleeting moments of thought about mounting my tires by hand.
Then My Heart, Back and hips joined in with the rest of my body to say. "Hell No."
Good for you bob.

Torchie, mounting is the easy part, breaking down the old tires is what gets ya! Thatís why I jumped on that tire machine I bought when I got the chance. With the air powered bead breaker, half the hard work becomes easy! Much better than the sledgehammer and tire wedges!

Iíve seen a few tire machines for sale around me , Bama. No room
In the shop though. I donít need tires mounted often and my local town has a good shop. When I dropped off the 2 tires and rims the tech unloaded them for me and said, ď looks like Coker tires by the way they are wrapped.Ē😳
He obviously knows his business.
$10 per tire to mount them.

Up here mount and balance can easily be $40 a tire.

When you don't know what you're doing, it's best to do it quickly.

And when Iím gone, you can call me foolish but hopefully not boring. I will have lived.

The more I learn about women, the more I like my car.
