I do have the right side depth control and did "free float" the drawbar.

The center to center measurement is 40." Is this something that a tire shop needs to switch out? Do the tires need to be removed from the rims? If not, is there a link showing how to do that anywhere? I can't see what is adjustable there. Sorry for all the questions...

Swap your rims from inside the center to the outside. Don't swap the centers.
There are two ways to get enough Cubs. One is to continue to accumulate more and more. The other is to desire less.

Man, I'm really feeling stupid here. The outer rim can be removed from the center? And if I switch them around it will add 4 inches?

Take the rim loose from the center and move it to the outside of the center on each side. That will move it out two inches on each side. Post a pic of what you have.

Hi,
The rim is fastened to the wheel disc with 4 bolts.
The mountings on the rims are offset on the rim, they are not in the middle of the rim, that is why the width would change.
Below is a page from the 1965 Cub operator's manual, showing the different rear wheel widths, and how they are obtained.
44" is the pic above the tire outline. It is the right rear wheel in the pic.

You switch the rims and tires from side to side so the tire tread will be pointing ahead, like it is now. :)

Below the box to write a post is Attachments, click on that and then click on Add files, the pics stored in your computer will come on, click on the pic you want to post. If the pic is too big, it will not work.
Then you would need to resize the pic or pics.

I saw that in the manual but it's about as thick as the mud at the edge of the back field. LOL So the wheels need to be removed and flipped around to where the current inside wall of the wheel becomes the outside wall?

That will space it right, but then tread in tires will be backward. You want to swap sides with the tires. Move right tire to left and vice versa.

When you plow, the first furrow is done with depth lever all the way forward for maximum depth. This is because your rear tire has no furrow to ride in. On the next pass, right rear tire will have a furrow to ride in, so you will need to adjust depth lever to get desired depth you want

Hi,
Click on the Post Reply box, to make a post, and the things I said should be there.

You don't turn the rims and tires around, then the tire tread would be backwards.
You move the right tire and rim to the left side, and the left tire and rim to the right side. The tire tread has to face ahead, like it is now.
If the tires were installed correctly on the rim, like they originally were, it will widen the tread to change sides with them.
The attachments on the rims have to go on the outside of the center disc.
The nuts on the 4 rim attaching bolts are on the backsides of the wheels.

The front axle has adjustable width too, it can be set to match the rear tread. Sometimes they are hard to move, the parts get stuck from rust. The operator's manual tells about setting the width.

A Cub is somewhat more stable the wider the wheel tread is. :)
