Took the back tires & rims off of our Oliver 1850 last Saturday. Calcium leaks got the best of the rims. Tires were undersized and shot. Time for new shoes on the old horse.

Used Old Mr. Redwrench, penetrating oil, cheater pipe. 10 hours later had both rims off the hubs, and the 12 bolts removed and cleaned up. There is were my 'free time' went this weekend. LOL!

This time put antifreeze in the tires instead of the calcium stuff.

I got the tractor knowing we'd need new rims & tires. Got methanol in the other 2 tractors.
