i got it, wasn't no easy way though, just had to be sure and get it way down in the groove good before starting on around.

I have an old snapper and last time I found both front tires were bad, one had the stem broke off, the other had a tube but was flat and too far around to get air in. I'd been doing some serious (for a lawn tractor) bush hoggin earlier and was needing to mow around the house, so went on and did it anyway that time. This time I was eather gonna get tubes or fix them someway. Got to figuring that's $25 so went and checked an old Murray that had wheels on it. The Snapper front wheels are 4.10/3.50 - 4 , and the Murray(I think will both hold air) are 11x4.00 - 4. Not sure if the spindles are the same, but going to try and swap them for now. The main difference I saw side by side is the Murray stands about an inch taller

now if it would just take air. I tried my old rope and loop pull down thing, but no way, even with double layer gloves and stompin on it, no seal. Any ideas how to get these sides out enough to reach both sides the rim and get air pressure started in it ?

Little bit of ether and a match. This ought to be good!

Thanks LilysDad, I'd already tried the rope, but just couldn't get enough pull into it. Hadn't thought of removing the valve stem, but tried, my air chuck wouldn't engage without the stem in there, so I tried a straight blower but still no luck

I dug out an old wratchet strap and kept pulling, it finally got a bead and took some air :)

Thanks yall for your help. Haha, guess you'll love it when the clutch wheel gets adjusted/replaced
