Thought this might be a good place for this thread.
Had an issue with Belle (#2 FF), one rear tire decided to get real short of breath.
The local Atwoods(Farm & Ranch store) had WW Fluid on sale for $1.29, so I bought 20 gallons for the second set of Terra Tires I had. These are 26-12X12 so rather large and need 10 gallons per tire to load. I also got some clear tube to fit the valve stems.
I had an empty WW Fluid jug, so I drilled the cap out to put in a screw-together valve stem. Got a piece of plywood and hogged out a hole for the jug to sit in upside down after cutting the bottom out of it. Attached that to a 2X4 so I could hang it from something. Best thing I found was the door. Attached the hose with small clamps after taking the valve core out of the stems.
In goes a bottle of WW fluid and the games begin. At about 4.5' feet up, the jug emptied a gallon in about 6 minutes ( including burping the air out of the tire.
Got the first one done. The last gallon was a real slow process as the air in the tire wasn't wanting to let the fluid in. So I raised the IV bottle to 6'. Made things go much faster on the second tire, about 4 minutes per gallon with burping.
Down to the last 2 gallons.
And the last of it going in.
A lot of dead soldiers. May keep those around to help float the ARK.
I weighed the tire/wheel combo before and got about 42 lbs. After filling I have right at 125 lbs. each. Hefty little dudes, but they don't need a diet. With 45 lbs. wheel weights, Bubba (#1 FF) can have 170 lbs. per side. If I go the 75 pounders, 200 lbs. Not bad for a few hours and <$35 in materials. I will put the filled tires on Bubba and probably the 45 lb. weights. I'll put the 75 lb. weights on Belle when I change those out and get her setting right again.
