    It should be noted when deciding between 'Lagun' and 'Sharp', the best answer is always 'Wells Index'.

    The more I ponder this issue, the more it has begun to dawn in me that it begs the bigger question "Why would it be rusty in there, anyway?"

    The conclusion, sadly, is that the tractor was (gasp)...

    Is there enough room to drill a four bolt pattern to install lugs from the back side? If so, you could do that and then install 4 new lug nuts and torque them to the proper specs Then, loosen each...

    The first problem, as in the first post, is the wheel won't slide off the axle.

    Regardless of all other problems, that is a problem in and of itself.

    Changing a tire on the tractor just because the wheel won't come off? I would sooner wear knee high white gym socks in sandals. Because, you see, the rust would still be there.

    All that pulling stuff is a great idea, it gives you time to accept the fact that you're gonna have to lose some paint off the wheel. Once you are done with that, remove the valve stem (to vent air)...

    Bicycle shops are, indeed, essential to the existence of two large groups of people - the gay and the highly arrogant/pseudo-intellectual.

    What these posts show is there is no 'must do' way...it seems that a variety of ways work OK. I've pondered this topic for years. As for lube, it's fair to assume the lube will be 'squished' out by...

    A .400" depth is most likely abuse on a 16" swing lathe. On a 72" swing lathe, maybe not.

    I think I'm not the average lathe operator. From what I read here, and in talking to guys in shops, the #1 measure of any lathe, and operator, is how heavy a cut can be made.

    You cuddle up with that little cup of satisfaction...it's all you're ever gonna get. History will record his 'impeachment' as the sham it was. It was a failed impeachment. A failure. Failure.
