leaking rear tire

Recommended Posts

I have just picked up a 7118 and one rear tire is leaking, Are these tubed tires? I am sure I picked up something in the yard (nail or thorn) Any thoughts on the puncture procducts on the market like slime?

They came from the factory as tubeless. If it is leaking around the bead or thru some weather checks then installing a tube would fix it.If it is punctured then a tubeless tire plug like that used in car tires will work fine.

Look at the valve stem to determine if someone installed a tube. I never used Slime, but some say it is great. I like 4 ply tubeless without tire snot.

I say "Slime that there tire" ha ha. I have used Slime and it is a water based product that works well as long as the hole is only about the size of a spike "nail"or 1/8" dia.or smaller. I used it on the front tire on my Broadmoor and it worked great and I also have used and installed it on my atv tires and when ever I have run over a thorn or a nail I can see the green "Slime" leaking out until it seals itself. First find out where the tire is leaking whether at the rim or the tire itself and then decide whether to - tube it- spug it-screw it- or SLIME IT ha. >>->happyjack<-<< P.S. My Kubota has sealer in all its tires as an option and if not for it I would be repairing tires or the time but I don't know what type the dealership used but its a gray color and that I know with 3 nails still in its tires waiting to come out "opps" and while tearing down my sons burned out garage and driving on all kinds of boards with nails in them we only added air one time to a front tire untill it sealed itself. Yea either hate the stuff or love it untill the tire needs to come off.

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time
