Just to remove one tire? Drive the other front wheel up on a 2x4.

If you dont like Jim's simple trick, stick a bottle jack under the torque tube up by the flywheel

The Canadian Redneck on YouTube uses a block of wood and jack right under the oil pan

That is how I did it with my BN.

There are two ways to get enough Cubs. One is to continue to accumulate more and more. The other is to desire less.

Yep, use a 2x4 to work on the tires of the Super C, works great

That is the way we did it on our Farmall H for years, except we use a couple of stacked 2x6s, offset so they formed a step to come up.
If you are not part of the solution,
you are part of the problem!!!
