    This may be something some of you know about, or not. Either way, I saw a show a couple years back about an 4x4 team crossing of the Artic. They had custom Landcrusiers. Anyway, on that show they showed a quick and easy way to fix a tire that has popped off the bead. They took a can of hairspray and sprayed inside the tire a little, and used a match or something along those lines to ignite the vapors. The mini explosion popped the tire back on the beads. I don't thinks its a method that is great for tires, but its a quick fix in a jam. Anyway, thought someone out there might like to know. I have read some on this site since I found it, think its a great place to gather/share info, and had not run into anyone mentioning that type of bead fix.

    I've had to use starting fluid on a payscraper tire before. Scary deal any way you look at it.

    Yeah it's been mentioned before.... sucks to try it though and then end up with no facial hair. I suppose though burning yourself popping a tire back on is better then getting Herculiner on your hootus....

    we have used starting fluid to mount tractor tires that pop off beads for years...kind of an old time trick...i have done it a few times to mount some swampers or something i didnt want to pay to have mounted.

    Later

    Have you driven OVER a Ford lately?

    Hairsprays good for electrical connections too, its a lacquer and seals out moisture, used it on the rally car all the time during wet races or if there was going to be creek crossings.

    Instead of Lacquer based products, which will dry out and crack your ignition parts, try Silicone spray, I use the foaming kind ...wash the entire engine down and get it clean then lather the puppy up....just keep it off the belts. It works great.

    Makes sense, and could be an issue on a 4x4......I had good backing on the race car and would do a tear down and clean up after each race...you live and learn.

    the craziest ive seen is some guy when he was airing back up pulled out a hose and pulled off one of his spark plugs and pluged in the hose to where the spark plug was and filled up his tires once he started up his engine ( i thought it was original...maybe not though)

    That's a "chuffer" - they've been around for quite a while, my granddad won't leave home without his.
