Changed a rear tire on my tractor. Its about 5 1/2' tall. I'm about 5' 9" tall.
It weighs 400'. I weigh 195'. I'm getting to old for this stuff!

For added weight you fill them with calcium chloride or water with antifreeze. The first thing you do isndrain them. Then you remove them from the tractor.

Well, the only thing I did today out in the garage was to do a wizbang wash job on my buddies wheel chair. When I went to pull it out of my trunk at his house Sunday it looked like hell, so I went ahead and left it there and brought it home to a good washing.

This is the first time posting on this thread for me and Im not going to read all the other posts LOL

I installed and adjusted the new solid lifters on the 54 chevy and a minor tune.
Installed and adjusted a new carb on the 61 Buick and gave it a tune up.

And in the evening on the 66 Riviera GS I gave it a major tune up ( Major tune includes adjusting valves for the non professionals out there)
