That poor thing should at least have a draw bar to hold things together.
There's a cub here local that was used to mow a very steep farm using a 22 mower. It's set at the same width plus they added a turn buckle between the finals to keep it from spliting apart.

Mike, I'll have you a few pictures tomorrow night. :wink:

I cracked a LS final transporting a high wide to a CT show. I find transporting a high wide puts more stress on it than actual use. Bridge expansion joints kill them.

I think that under close inspection you will find that sprocket has a smooth bore with a keyway. The roll pins wedged it all together.

Somewhere along the line roll pins came into play to tighten it up a bit.

Mike,
My herd from a couple of years ago;

The 1957 Farmall Cub is set so center-to-center is 44".
The 1957 International Cub Loboy was set to the widest possible dimension.
The 1968 International Cub Loboy had a different mount on each side for some reason.

I was wondering if it would be better if we had pix of the center bolted to the rim and then mounted on the tractor giving the width. That way a person can look at that and know that is how they need to set their's. As it is with the pix so far, nobody can get a good feel for if the lug is in or out, or if the lug is on the back side of the center or the front side and so forth.

Yep, I think that would be much better.

Agree, Larry. Pics of the loops and wheel center from an angle so you can see how they are mounted. The a rear shot like you have it above would be most excellent!

I agree, something using the same tractor with the camera mounted on a tri pod would be a big plus. It's going to be hard to tell anything with a mix of pictures.
