  1. I have a very nice 1917 IHC model F truck. The wood wheels/cast iron-rubber tires are in reasonably great shape, save one. One has shrunk thus allowing the cast/rubber tire to become loose. The truck just came to the San Joaquin Valley of Calfironia [dry] from Baltimore, MD.[humid] I have been told to submurge the wheels into linseed oild for several months to allow the wheel to swell back into it orignal condition. Is this the way to handle the problem? Are there other ways to accomplish the desired results?
