Good news in another dept though...a finger crosser anyways...might have my tire problem solved for now. On the roadside of the fence...and an 1/8th mile from home saw a rural neighbor (has a CASE gannon//tractor and lives 1/2 mile up and about another over. His truck was overheated and since and I lived less than a minute away...I had some spare jugs of water, then got to talking. Turns out he's got a couple 16.9s by 24. Sun beat but good sidewalls and 50%+ tread with the worst of the pair having a index-finger sized hole near the tread//sidewall joint that came off his rig. Good chance could be patchable but could also go with tubes anyway. Though he's been offered before for the tires...the price he gave me is 2 30-packs of Coors. What the hell...going for it. If it works out saves me from hunting...if not...I follow up as I have been with only minor loss.
Couldn't come at a better time since some of the credit union loan I'd gotten to get the tractor had to be tapped into to for the labor to pull our well...which took the worst time to die on us.
