I inspected the wheel today and I don't see how one could use a hydraulic lift; such as an engine lift, to handle the wheel.
I was thinking that if I removed the fenders, then perhaps that would allow me enough room to clean the rust from the wheels and prime and paint them on the tractor. It won't be a first rate job but it will help with the rust issue. I noticed the slot in the hub for adjusting the brake shoes; are rubber plugs available to cover these holes? If not, then duct tape will probably do the job of keeping the sand blasting dust out of the drums.
I am not sure if the compressor can handle the rate needed for sand blaster, it was a good unit new but it is old and worn. I have been kicking around the idea of getting a new compressor head when funds are available.
