Question about Front AV Rims

Postby Stanton » Thu Apr 06, 2017 8:45 am

I know each triangular tab attached to the rim has 3 holes. The innermost hole is used to attach the rim to the tractor wheel. What's the other two holes used for? They don't appear to line up with the wheel weights for a regular A. Did AV's have larger front wheel weights that fit in those holes?

Thanks.

The AV used the same front weights as an A. I have never seen a use for the extra holes, but I haven't been around the high clearance tractors that much.

Good Question. Do the original rims have the same holes like the aftermarket ones (assuming the one pictured is aftermarket)? I will be following this.

Yep, good question. I'm making the tabs now and know where to locate the primary holes that fit the wheels. I just want to know the location of the secondary holes (the 2 in question per tab) so I get those in the correct position---for whatever is supposed to fit thru them.

Are you making them with the original style rivet or at least to look that way?

No, I'm planning to have them only welded. Will be dropping them off to a local welder this afternoon. If I can't find any info about the placing of the other 2 holes, then I'll just have to hum a few bars and fake it.

I found two different part numbers for front weights as listed under Special Equipment in the Operators/Owners Manual. First weight is 48 600 D and second weight is 48 602 D. This is listed for both Super-A and Super-AV. It might not have anything to do with the holes in the rim tabs, I could not find a picture in the manual of the weights either mounted or unmounted.

The second weight is the same weight but requires longer bolts. The numbers you listed are for the "machine attachments" that include the hardware. The weights themselves (just the cast part) are 6 788 D. In the parts catalogs, the bolts are usually listed after the main part.

So, this sounds like it's still a mystery, doesn't it?

I should have guess that and didn't look at the parts catalogue. I just happened to run across the different numbers in the special equipment list. Thanks Jim for clearing that up. And yes, Stanton, the mystery continues. :?:
