Hi Peter, the gas tank was a real problem. I used muriatic acid and about 5# of 3/8 nuts, shaking it over about 3 days then flushing it. It cam out like new. I am not going to even coat it.
My computer skills are limited, maybe I can get some help to post pictures.
Head is off and pan is off. Crank is fine as well as the bore. I will be replacing the valves and grinding the seats. Ball hone the cyls and new rings
and rod bearings. Will be like new

I used the BKT tires on the High Clearance,7x30 that I just finished. Liked them a lot.

Well I ordered the Carlisle farm specialist. My local tire shop was way too expensive. So I will be buying two large tire irons and a bead buster to change myself. I will also be filling them with antifreeze myself. I got the 9.5-24 and after tax was 403.88 with tubes. If it work out I will post progress. Thanks!

Wheel weights don't leak when you get a puncture. (Just my preference not to stir the weights vs fluid debate.)

either way with a puncture the tire will have to be broken down because of the tubes .

But just air can be done faster because you don't have to deal with the fluid, if it all hasn't leaked out and made a mess. Again my preference, to each their own.

I do under stand fixing with out the liquid is better and faster. but if I had the fluid for free I would be using that first as flats very rare for me . but if I had to chose between the 2 of them with buying one or the other I would be going with the weights without even a thought.
