Here are a few pictures of our 1963 Cub Loboy. The front wheels have an inner and outer weight, was this common? Thanks

The inner weights add about 40 lbs, per side. Fairly rare and worth $4-500 a pair. If you don't need the front end weight to counter an implement on the back, you could probably take them off.

better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it...( YES this includes CUBS! )

You might check to see if the piece of hood that was cut out is still around....

Maybe the square nose hood here would work, rather than trying to repair yours...
