    Posted: 27 Sep 2011 at 8:14pm
I have a full set of wheel weights on my WD45 and I have done what most people do for the front ones, ground down one side of a carriage bolt. Later on I would like to use the correct bolts though, any aftermarket supplier have them? I have heard the dealer can still get them but at a hefty price. I was wondering how much the front and rear weights weigh also. Thanks guys.

I looked at the weight of the weights on many other sites, wow there are a bunch of different answers for what they weigh, figured It would be best asking here.

Look closely there is two different rear weights. One weighs 135lbs per side and one 150.

I think those are the 150s. Id have to reweigh mine to remember which are which. The other set for them are about a half inch bigger in diameter and maybe a quarter inch thinner. They also have notches on two of the half round holes.

   I believe the weights you are talking about are actually for the B.

Are the front ones about 80 pounds? Trying to figure out about how much the tractor weighs, its a wide front end.

Il try and get a pic of them. If you dont look at them closley you would never know the difference. I pointed out the difference to the local dealer, Hes 70 and the smartest Allis man I know, and he had never noticed the difference. They are for a WD45, Grandpas tractor came from the factory with a set of them.

The WD rear weights are close to 135#, the B weights with the notches and larger OD are 150#, and the front donut weights are 93# according to my antique Fairbanks platform scales.
Most problems can be solved with the proper application of high explosives.

This is the set of weights that came on Grandpa's WD45. The next pic will show the notch.

Close up of the notch. The notches are next to each, other not across.

Rfdeere, How do those mount to a B? I have never seen a B with a set of them on it. Those are the weights that came with Grandpas WD45. I was always told they were 45 weights. I am always willing to learn something new.

Thanks Rfdeere, I had no idea. Ive never seen them on a B, only on a WD, WD45. I have two sets of each. Is one set more common than the other?

   The WD/WD45 weights (no notches) are much more common, I think ?

Thanks for all the extra info about the weights guys. I'm wondering why they made a set that would fit a B and WD/WD45 though? Also still wondering if there are any aftermarket supplier of the correct bolts for the front wheel weights?
