sat flat...

The go kart sat a little too long on flat tires in the rear.  They are new tires that have only seen a couple of miles of use but they both have a crease in them that doesn't allow a good seal on the bead.  Just got a can of bead sealer to try out.  (FYI - 3 fans on the swamp cooler is a good compromise.)  88,96,76,0,W

At some point - would you be inclined to go over your current electricity situation?

how much power are you generating and storing in how many batteries and what are the things like your laptop and pepino ... what else - that are drawing on your system?

thanks

Well that was a situation that could not be helped. I have to get new tires because there is dry rot around the tire but the tread is great.

Google the term "How to seal a tire with starting fluid" and it will give you quite a few Youtube videos of that procedure.

Here's a link to just one:

put a ratchet strap (tie down) around the circumference of the tire ant tighten it up. That's how to seal tires that are too narrow. Once it seals momentarily, over-inflate it and leave it that way for a day or two and make sure that side is in the sun.
