Tire chain new question

Recommended Posts

First thanks daddycat for the chain lesson, now here's my problem I bought 16x8 chains for the front of my 88 landlord and while still up on the jack I started spinning the tire to see how the clearance was well occaisionally the chains would hit the spindle brackets,I thought I could live with this until I turned the wheels while spinning and at full turn the chains hit the grease fitting on the spindles, where I would think it would break them off in a hard turn. Should I remove the grease fittings and put in a Rubber plug until spring? I bought the front chains to use with a snowblower to help with the steering, I also have a dozer blade for this and in the past with the soveriegn it would get pushed aside with a heavy load in front of it. I can always use the chains on the soveriegn if you guys think they aren't necessary with the weight of the blower. Merry Christmas to all of you and may Santa get a good supply of the new 4 wheel legacy's

Rick, You might try removing the grease zerk and putting in a very short 1/8" bolt (I think that's what it is) in the hole. That's what you have to do to grease the High/Low pulley on the oldies... You can't leave the zerk in.

Seems like to me that chains on the front would be more annoying and a hassle than anything...I think I would run weights and some ags or snow hogs...Also seems like chains would slip on pavement when the snow is cleared...

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
