Don't give up, it's far too much fun once you can drive it.

Not quite Dozer, pics will lie! Itís just Rustolem brushed on over all the pits. I did run a wire brush on a drill over it to knock off any loose stuff, but that was it. Just wanting to preserve it, not so much restore it. Still got a few spots I couldnít get to to paint, and have got to clean and put the air cylinder back together. Hope to get some more time on it next weekend.

Got it all together except one spring. Going to have to bush the cylinder rod somehow, original brass bushing is shot, allowing piston to cock just enough to hang up, probably why it was retired in the first place. Started trying to break down this old bias ply, bottom did fair, top wouldn't budge. May have to increase the airline to 3/8", the 1/4" may just be too small, plenty of pressure, just not enough volume. Going to have to mount it, too, it's bad heavy to one side. May just bolt it to some 2x8's or a pallet for now until I pour some concrete.

Mine is all manual. No air. It hasn't failed me yet but will wear an old man out.

I break mine with my skidsteer and the forks
I had one of those manual tire changers with the air cylinder and loved it.
