      Update on 2/6.  Thanks to the sound advice from several members, I have now ordered a second matching Carlisle from my store, so I bit the bullet and have abandoned searching for a single matching Goodyear.  I may revisit buying a vintage set of tires on their rims in the future.

        From Beaufort, SC: I took my Sovereign wheels with old Goodyear 23x12.50-12 Terra Tires to the store to have new valve stems installed. They split the sidewall on one of the tires while breaking the bead and provided (gratis) their equivalent replacement Carlisle 23x12.50-12 Multi Trac CS. As you can see from the photos, the new tire has no resemblance to the old. Old tire diameter is 23". New tire diameter is 21". I am concerned about 1) destroying the look of my antique and 2) wearing out the axle differential over time. Can anyone recommend a higher profile original looking tire with a true 23 inch diameter to closely match the original?  My tractor is used for lawn mowing.  I will need to take this back to the tire store and request a solution. Thanks in advance for any advice.

      9934059's Deutz-Allis 917H
      By: mrmopar · 01/01/2022
      Power Steering Problem - My Deutz has the 1st generation P. S. and the cylinder is leaking. My re-builder has never seen one of these and does not know how to get it apart. It may had been pressed together. Has anyone had any experience with one of these and know how to get it apart? This 1st generation is really "Power Assist" and is totally different than the units used on the Sunstar & Sovereign which has controls/values as part of the steering column. Thank you - mrmopar

      Big tens were not made in 1962. They were only made in 1965
