    Valve Stem Issue

    Well, I just went to add some air to the rear tire of our 1025R. Bent down to take the cap off and the entire insides of the valve stem came off with the cap spraying me from head to toe with the beet juice they added. Shoved it back in, but now I’ve got an even lower tire with no way to add air. Grrr

    You will need to rotate the tire to get the valve stem on top. Then you can assess what the problem is. Hopefully you can just replace the core and be back in business.

    I tried that, its not just the core, it’s the whole part that the core threads into. Never seen nothing like it. Guess I’m just gonna take the whole wheel off and take to dealer.

    Well, yeah, dealer it is.

    Sounds like maybe they over tightened it when they put it in.


    I assume you are running tubes with that fluid, correct?
    If so it should be fairly straightforward for them to pump it out of the tire and back into a new tube.

    The beet juice dissolves the adhesive used in the rubber stems. The solution is to replace with metal stems. The people that fill the tires really should know that.

    The whole brass insides came out. It must be glued inside the rubber stem. The cap was so tight that the force it took to unscrew the cap was actually breaking the bond of the glue inside the stem. I shoved it back in and it held 20 lbs of air, but i could pull the whole thing back out with very little effort. Definitely don’t want it coming out in the pasture somewhere far from home. So the wheel and tire are loaded up to be taken in to have the whole stem replaced.

    I honestly did not even know that this tractor had any fluid in the tires.

    Technically, thats an issue with any fluid in a tire that has an air only stem. Some stems adhesive can dissolve in any liquid, so its possible that even washer fluid would do this, although it certainly doesnt seem to be as common as with beet juice.

    Had that happen on a customer's 1025. It had rubber stems from a few years ago, I went to check the pressure and got a surprise! So lucky me had to break the beads down with a BH and change out the stems, which we always do when we fill tires with Rimguard.

    u might as well load the other rear tire and haul it in and have that one changed over at the same time too. just save u some head banging later.
