I have to lean in with Rich... I have used the stuff successfully in the past, but really hated when it was time to go ahead and change that tire.  Ugh!

I have it in a tube on my '46 Deere A. Hole near the valvestem, can't patch it. Slime has kept it usuable for a few years. It's fine fo4 a last resort, just don't just throw it in any little thing with a leak.

I think budgie has a bead or sidewall leak anyways. I can see stuff coming out around the rim. I'm pretty sure I've spun these rims in the tires before so I'm not surprised at all lol.

Well if your taking it off anyway then I never said anything. I just literally cannot put a tube in a tire for under $30 and I could really care less about paying anymore than $15 for a tire already on the rim filled up and ready to go. And I have to go 20 miles to get it done. I don't have ANY of the fancy tools Y'all have so I make do with the time, tools, and budget I have.

Do you have a car, two prybars, and a valve core tool/the top of a valve cap? The only part that's a challenge is breaking the bead, thats what's the car is for. Every single tire of every single machine i have has been done that way. Hell, i even do car tires and 38" tractor tires that way.

I've literally never gotten my hands on tires worth my while. Only turfs. But if I ever get any I'll try it.

Tires are expensive. Most other stuff you can find for nothing... Kind of a shame but that's how it goes. Of course if you get decent tires, they'll pretty much last for years.

I get tires from craigslist or on clearance.  Can't beat tires like this $30 for the pair.  Smile

Those are nice tires mighty but i think I'd cut every other tread out, not enough spacing.

I'll find some on Craigslist or Facebook eventually

Stainless steel plate i cut for the bottom. Don't think I'll bolt it, a bungee cord should hold all of this in.

MM while i live in Kentucky, I'm actually from New York. So I'm not used to 90° more than once a summer, and especially not with any kind of humidity. I *can* work in that, I just don't prefer to. So I'm pretty much nocturnal during the summer so i can work at night when it's colder.

Good guess but no Mighty. Actually I probably could also use it for a brake pedal shaft. Hmmm.

So i forgot to take pics along the way because i just wanted to get this thing outta the shop, but here's what i got:

Skidplate goes all the way back to the hitch plate, protects the gas tank too.

Foot pedal brake still needs a bit of tweaking but works great. So i have both a hand and foot brake now. Wish I'd have gotten a picture of the linkage I made for it.
MTD - "Budgie"  - Page 13 20190735

Added a brake latch, was tired of not having one.
