Farmall Super A Air Pressure

Postby Popeye » Sun Apr 17, 2011 10:18 am

I have a Low Rear Tire on my Farmall Super a but the problem is that they are filled with calcium, and so I jacked up the tractor to get the weight off the tire, spun it around so the valve stem is on the top and put air in the tire, but I can not check the pressure with a gaugh because of the liquiid calcium. Other than just Sight, how can I tell if I put Too Much or too Little in? Any tips on solving this problem? Does it realy matter as long as the tire Looks well inflated? I do use the tractor with rear implements and it does have wheel weights as well.

Another technique. I have several air compressors on which you can adjust the output psi. Set the gauge on your air compressor to the psi you want in the tractor tire. Then inflate the tire.

One air compressor, battery powered, that is carried in a vehicle, will shut itself off when the air pressure in the tire reaches the psi set on the guage.
I have an excuse. CRS.
