I have been working today on filling my tires, The Gylecol is in steel 55 gal drums run a line to the drum with regulator. line to tire minus valve stem, load barrell with 10 PSI.. BARREL GETS SCAREY BIG RIGHT NOW:Stop:
Ok everything seems to be holding.. filling tire and stopping every ten minutes to bleed off air.
BUT I DID GO IN HOUSE WHILE I AM FILLING.. Just incase barrel goes to ****. Don't want to be too close>>>>:fing32:
got to go check now...

Ummm, I've handled a lot of drums and if yours is showing any signs of bulging / deformation , I'd find another way, just about any other way, other than pressurizing it to 10 PSI..... even if that meant gravity feed and it taking all day, and even a night to load a tire..

Ever have a bung fly past your head when taking it off a heat pressurized drum? I have, and it's downright scary , but now I know better. Some bigger forces you are working with there- be careful.

got one tire done about a half hour ago,, working on the other.
The first tire is about 3/4 full. I would think that would be about all you should do, or the tire won't have enough air to compress? I know it's heavy.

I have got a set of Chains for the rear tires and they are on also.. with 20-24 gals of fluid and chains in each tire we should be ready to GET IT ON this winter.. LOl

Glad you got it done. That will help a lot to have some loaded tires.

I took the loaded tires off an 8N in the past- Heavy :)

We got a pump from an Ag tire shop that needed repair, fixed it , and now were just like the big boys. This was a necessity for us as we have 30 antique tractors, most are calcium loaded. If you have many to do it can pay for a pump in a hurry.

LOL I AM SO STUPID... LOL That is funny stuff,, that's the same pump I used to pump it out of the darn 500 gallon barrel at work, in to the 55 gallon drums. I never thought about it...

Thanks I saved those pages, This is the kind of stuff that I needed, i guess I should have asked.

Most of the time I google things I want to do, then think about all the info I have seen then I do it,, Rebuilt 2 houses that way,

During the economy colapse I sold my orignial house (dirt cheap lost some money) bought and rebuilt 2 houses, and kepth the third, after I rebuilt it. now I live on five acres with no payment,, PAID FOR!!! TWO BIG WORDS,, any how so I get a little jump happy some times... I think I know something when I don't.. Lol
Thanks again good info..:trink39:

I just loaded my tires on my 49 8n a couple of weeks ago. I hooked a short pice of garden hose to a funel and screwed it to the addaptor. I put 32 gallons of washer fluid in each tire. It only took me about 1 1/2 hours per tire.
