One of my JB's rims were rusted bad. I have some near new Tru-Power 26x12x12 tires to go onto them, so I've been working the rims over. I put each rim into my electrolysis tank with just a 6 amp battery charger and just left them for 2 days each, as I've been covered up farming, and easier to drop em & forget them for a while. Each came out great, just let them dry in the sun a few minutes, and a very quick job in the blast cabinet removes the cruddy oxide. Been shooting the paint, and just need to go out & spray a final coat. Pics in a few minutes.

I wish I had of taken before pics. They were NASTY rusty! Electrolysis is THE way to go! I started to just sandblast them, as my E-tank rod assembly broke it's welds when I removed it last year, and I hadn't gotten round to welding them back together yet. After a half hour of blasting with little progress, I opted to take the few minutes to weld the anode rods back to the ring. Worth it in spades! Drop them in the tank, hook up the charger & forget it for 2 days. Work is done except for 5 minutes blasting each to clean the oxide off.

Looking good Daniel! What color are you painting them?? Back to factory "yellow" or white?

Still trying to decide what color to use for mine when I get ready.....was going to take one of the "good clean" old new stock parts to the paint shop to see what color they said the "red" was.....I also had a "yellow' hub in the deal.....little more wear and tear but was going to see what they came up with that color as well...... just wondered if you were staying with the same colors you had used in the d4-10 restoration thread or if you had other ideas....

Got me motivated as too.....got to hook up my e tank as well!!

White is the OE color of the JB rims, all other BH models had yellow rims. This JB was already painted when I robbed the rear tires/rims, and weights to go onto my JB diesel tractor. This is simply dressing my JB with the twin Wisconsin back up like it was. I will fluid fill the rears, but for now at least, no cast weights.

They look good Daniel. Yes, the Etank is the way to go, if you're otherwise busy. I've been
running some tin for a couple Kohler K341s through the tank. It's so nice to get back at after 3 days,
and find all the pcs, all cleaned up, other than a quick brush,

Daniel,
They came out looking great.

Since the night time temps are staying in the 40* to 45* F range I need to get mine set back up. I would like to make one out of a 200 to 250 gallon plastic tank but just don't have the room for it.

Bill

Well, I just pulled these rims from the E-tank this morning, now primed, painted, and tires/tubes mounted! Gotta love acrylic enamel with hardener!
