Front Wheel Weight Placement

Postby Slappy » Wed Sep 08, 2004 5:26 am

I was looking through one of the Farmall books (I forget which) and came across a picture of a Cub with the front wheel weights placed on the back of the wheel. I know that this would be a little more work to get them off or on as the tire and rim would also have to be removed. That being said, I wonder if the reverse placement - the weight under the spindle instead of to the outside - might not make steering a little easier. I know that my Cub takes more work to steer with the weights on than off. Any thoughts?

The owner's manual describes attaching up to three sets of front wheel weights: Two on the outside, and one on the inside of the wheel. The inside weights are a different design from the looks of it, and are heavier.

The inside weights are a different part from the outside ones. I believe they weigh a little more, but am not taking the time to look it up this morning. You will probably find your current weights will not fit over the hubs.
