Help Identifing Parts

Fri Dec 21, 2012 3:07 pm

I have been contacted by a guy that has some parts he wants to sell. He doesn't know what most of them are and sent some poor quality pictures for me to see. The front tire/wheel is off of a Cub that is obvious as well as the colter (although I don't know what plow it might go to) but what about the remaining parts? The one red bracket looks like part of a swinging draw-bar but I figured that the experts here could help me out.

Home made middle buster is the thing on the plow beam, the rest looks to be AC and John Deere maybe Oliver Looks like the rim is the best part :D

Wheel/tire could be from a Cub. To the right of it, a colter, could be IH but not from a Cub. The coulter disc might fit in the colter bracket (2 pieces to the left). That bracket could be correct for a Cub-189 or Cub-193 plow. The green thing between the colter and bracket looks like a generic tow bar. To the left of the wheel is a bumper clamp type hitch, fits cars until probably the early '50s when bumpers got styled to the point they no longer fit.

In picture 2, the home-made middlebuster is attached to the cross bar of a Cub swinging drawbar. The hand lever looks about right for the depth control of a middlebuster on an Allis Chalmers B, and probably some other similarly sized ACs. Nect to it is part of a cultivator standard, again for an AC.

The thing with 2 clamps in the middle of picture 3 is a fixture for hot patching an inner tube.

Jim, I think you hit the nail on the head.

Thanks,

Rick, That hot patch clamp is one of the "better" model that I have seen. A lot of country stores/garages only had a single size clamp. That one is for both large and smaller size patches. The curves part on the right side was for cleaning the patch area. One would pull their tube down over the curved plate and scrape it with their pocket knife if they didn't have the right scraping tool (usually the top of a Monkey grip cold patch box). Then put the tube with the right size patch in the clamp. Light off the powder charge and in a few minute you had a cooked on patch. Worked like a charm if you got everything clean and clamped tight. I wonder if hot patches are still available today? Looks like a trip to Google in the making.
Hope everyone has a great Christmas.
