[:night: Nap Time]

I have been posting pics on the test board & decided to move them over here where they belong on the Farmall board under the supervision of I-H Parts Man. I condensed these into 1-post.

Hey
Thats a good idea making a tire out of news papers. Does it hold air???? I think you need to make some tread for it. :winky:

JB, you don't want to stop looking for bargains, finding a deal is half the fun. Besides, we all need an excuse to go play with stuff. It keeps us out of our wives hair, and out of the doghouse. :smiles:

Most guys use IH argent silver on the rims. Don't know off-hand what the number is.

:rockin:

Freebird:, Sorry for the long delay, I guess I just missed this post till it came up again today. I only check new posts link when I hit this forum and I dont get new post-activity notices on posts I am active in.

The silver paint I used is X-O RUST (brand) rattle can number XO-10-Aluminum. There is another number under aluminum that reads (TS 197 756) spaced as such. This is great paint but I have never found a silver paint yet that has any body to it and you cant wax it, I tried a test spot and the wax acted almost like paint remover. I would recommend putting a clear coat over any silver paint. I think I will have to do mine over again and apply a clear coat. Dummy me should have done it the first time as wheel painting is a lot of work masking the tire.

Thanks alot guys. THe reason I asked is because the red paint I bought out here has a sticker on it that denotes that it is international harvester red. I thought that there may also be one in silver but I've not found any. In the spring I will be taking my rims/tires apart to redo them. I have a slow leak in a valve stem and was told I should replace the calcuim chloride with windshield washer fluid as it is less corrosive.

I was told that "old" anti-freeze was an excellent filler for tires. After all, it is formulated NOT to harm steel. On the other hand, if you have a barn full of cats, springing a leak could increase your rodent population considerably, I guess.

turtle I think you could get by with just plain water & a hose adapter. I lived in the Kent, Puyallup area for 12 years and never seen it get cold enough to freeze tires. Although I do remember me having to walk my paper-route a few times because my bicycle chain was frozen.turtle

Nah Jody, Its been to cold and wet out for me to work on it. I have painted parts hanging off of trees & in the house ready to put on when it the weather will allow it. I am building a small flatbed Wagon/trailer in the meantime. I stripped an old Toro-Whirlwind rider down to frame & wheels plus cut the steering post off and made a tongue for tow steering. Anyhoo thats the extent of My trying to stave off Cabin-Fever. This is the hardest forum for me to post on that I participate in, It takes forever the reply/quote page to open. I dont have this problem withany other forums I post in. I think its because there is so much useless junk on here to wade through that nobody ever uses that I have noticed. Original posting & surfing aint bad but I avoid replies a lot of times cause I dont have the 3-minutes patience. I know I will get blasted with the reason its because I have dial-up but thats bull cause this is the only forum that is a turtle for me.

:smoking:

Jody the only thing I have got done to it lately was last week I wrestled with the wheel weights and got them stripped clean and painted. Seems like every time I get started working on it something else needs my attention and takes me away from it. I will hopefuly be able to give it a lot of attention soon.
