Sometimes it is better to be lucky instead of good. Happened across a scrap guy on his way to the scrap yard and spied green and yellow in the back of his pick up truck.The tractor met its death by sawzall but there they were both back wheels with not one but two sets of double notch wheel weights. Luckily he cut the axle tube and the hubs are still perfect. Twenty dollars later and I am their new owner. SCORE!!!

Long drive into snowy PA.........................may sell one set but am planning on keeping one set for sure.Never even thought that I also got a set of back wheels also in the deal. I have to admit I was a bit heart broken to see the old girl just cut into pieces like that when there were so many valuable parts associated with it. He had even busted up the engine or I would have brought that with me for the RF 112.  Trading is also an option as my coffers are a bit depleted right now. I know The Elfman knows what I'm talking about.

Me? Know what you mean? I have no idea as to what you are referring to.  :lol:

By the way, what are you referring to as coffers? That's new lingo to me, and I never heard it before.

What was the original tractor Kyle? Looks to have been a 200 series?

I also believe it to have been a 200 series, no sight of the hood and I did not venture a look at the serial number. I was focused on those wheels at the time and after seeing the way it was cut up along with many of the smaller items was happy with that. I am not sure why he cut so much up for so little gain.

Maybe he cut it apart so that he could load it better? Just guessing. A real shame though no matter what.

Now I need to get the weights out of the back of my truck this weekend. Left them in to help with traction in the snow but their killing my mileage. I think taking them apart would make it a little easier as lifting them in kinda, sorta was not fun.

I'll offer $100 for a set of those weights, needing a set for my 86 318. Not a bad return on a $20 investment.. Lol
