I am thinking about putting a liner in one of my tractor tires. The liner will be an old tube. I would like to glue the liner/old tube to the inside of the tire, then install a air holding tube in the tire. Any ideas????? Or what would you use for a liner????

Another strange question/idea from,
Noel

Why do you feel you need a liner between the tire and tube?

Tire has cracks and rubs on tube, then causes hole, which causes flat tire. Tire needs replacing, but can't afford that, so , I figued a liner would help the bad tire along for a awhile longer.

That will work just fine.  Back when I did a lot of Bicycling and we got a flat we would take a $1 bill and wrap it around the tube so the puncture in the tire would not pinch the tube.  Also On MC wheels that use a tube I will put a patch over the puncture so it doesn't pinch a new tube, but I always put a new tube in.

I don't see any reason why it wouldn't work , a bit of glue to  hold it to the tire while assembling it and the tube should hold in it place when it's aired up . I usually dust a little talcum power on the inner tube to keep it from getting any folds in it when I air it up.

Isn't that what they call Booting?  Sort of a hunk of rubber, kinda glued in, usually because the ag tire had big crack or rim edge going bad? Used to be a common thing to do, but not so much anymore. How about some filler material over in into the bad areas also, like silicone or similar?
