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;
Image

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.
It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.

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.
