Wheel weight question

Postby Yogie » Sat Mar 19, 2011 9:54 pm

Anyone have an idea what these came off of ?
A friend came by the shop today and asked me, said he had them on a cub at one time.
They show a little orange so I was thinking maybe a Allias Chalmbers G or something small since their not as heavy and a cub front weight. Sorry, I didn't have time for measurements.

At one time Allis Chalmers purchased/owned/operated a 2 wheeled garden tractor factory. The wheel weights on the 2 wheeled garden tractor in the above link fit the Cub's front rims - weigh about 25 or 26 lbs each.

Actually, it's hard to tell where the wheel weights came from. A number of manufacturers used the same rims and same wheel weights.
I have an excuse. CRS.

Thanks Eugene, looks really close to what you have on the garden tractor.
They show numbers but no ID that I can see. I'll hit them with the air brush tomorrow and see if anything turns up.

Looks like they were made to stack more than one to a wheel

Could be David, I'm guessing Eugene's about right on the weight of them.
They could end up on the front inside of Grayson's cub, that would look pretty good. :wink:
