I need to remove both front wheels and get new tires. Can I jack up under only one frame rail? Will it support the weight?

I only jack up under one frame rail. Haven't had any problems. Make sure you on level ground. Might want to block back wheels. Movement of one rear wheel and not the other will cause it to spill itself off of the jack.

If your brakes are adjusted evenly as the should be flip the little deal that lock both pedals together and apply the brake lock good and tight. Then jack away all will be fine. Sorry, had a little chuckle over your question, it is hard for me to believe that some simple knowledge about something like this is just taken for granted in my brain. I?m sure I?ve seen it done while growing up a couple dozen times or more so to me your question seemed weird. Good luck and be safe!

Run one up onto a 4X4 and do the opposite one, then run the new one up and do the second. Jim

I do like Janicholson says - run one front wheel at a time onto a block of wood.

Or to lift the entire front end, center your jack under the clutch housing and jack away. Be sure to securely chock BOTH rear wheels first however!

Running a wheel up on a block of wood is fine if you want to make two trips to the tire shop... Can't only get one tire off at a time like that.

For a lot of us that wouldn't be a problem as we change our own tires, at least the ones that are still too young and stupid to pay someone else...

There's nothing wrong with jacking under one frame rail, but as others have stated you can also jack at the clutch housing as well.

Jacking under just one frame rail is asking for trouble. The tractor WILL move sideways away from the jack. I've even tried 2 jacks. One under each frame rail. NOT a good idea. Best way is to place a hydraulic jack under the center of the torque tube, as far forward as possible, and even that will not be overly stable.

Do you have a loader tractor? If so remove grill wrap a chain around upper bolster and lift front end up. The put a jack stand under center section. Once wheels are removed, remove jackstand and set front wheels on a board. When ready to install rims and tires just repeat process. If no loader or skid loader is available then just jack up under mid section.

Dunno. Worked for me. I even used one of those "dangerous" Hi-Lift jacks to do it. Didn't budge an inch. Of course I had it in gear, brakes locked, and wheels chocked. I mean, if you park it on a side hill in neutral and try jacking, it's going to roll on you.

I just finished this project myself. Build some blocks and jack it up. Then build some blocks, 6 x 6, and support from the under side of the clutch housing. Ellis

Run one up on a block like Jim said. Then take a bigger block like a 6x6 or 8x8 put under the one casting then run it on to that then both wheels can go at once and then just reverse process to install.
