Glad it got you home! I had heard about this being done back in the day, thanks for the video. One case where duct tape is not up to the task. Old Red would be proud of you trying to use it, though. :-)

That was not me, found it when looking about how to change a t tire tube.
I want to see if I can change a tube without taking the rear wheel off. I have sure stop brakes and a floating hub I have everything working and now I have a flat.

Of course you can change a tube without taking the wheel off, see this thread, scroll down in it to Royce Peterson's post:

Thanks Mark, that makes me feel much better. I really did not want to take the wheel off after working so hard to get the hub and the brakes just right.

Some people (I'm one of them) think it is easier to do a tire with the wheel on the car than it is off the car.

I remember my grandpa telling me that he got tired of fixing flats. So, he filled the tires with sand and wrapped bailing wire around them to hold them on the wheel. I don't remember him saying long he was able to drive like that.
