  • Axle weights
  • Got a set of axle weights from one of the guys from our show this past weekend. He said he took them off his 8n show tractor. I made him an offer and he bought them down the second day of the show. He said they were the flat top but when he bought them down I was pleasantly surprised to see they were the later style with the cut out so they will fit the hundred up thru the early thousand series. The later style was cut out to go over the axle bolt. The earlier style axle weight, both round tops and flat top would not fit the later tractors. I thought I would post a photo so if someone runs across them they will know what they fit. These are 140 lbs each and not for sale. I have only run across one other set to fit the later models in my area so they might be hard to come by. I have had other flat tops, 160 lbs, and other round tops, 180 lbs that fit the 9n/8n/2n and the early ferguson tractors.

  • Are those axle weights made by Ford? Like someone else stated, I thought the fender mounted to the top, but your picture cleared that issue. Seems like I recall similar weights listed in one of my tractor parts catalogs, but were no longer available. Thanks for the picture!

  • I don't think Ford made them. I think they were made by aftermarket companies. I remember farmhand being stamped in one set I had

  • Thanks for the photos. Not sure I would have realized what they were for, if I ever saw a loose set of "weights" for sale. Guarantee I'd manage to smash a finger or two installing a set.

  • Thanks for the pictures. So the fender sits on top of the weight and the bolt holes
    line up to bolt the fender on top of the weights.

    Nice set, I would like to find a set for an 860.

    THANKS again for sharing

  • The weights sits on top of the fender bracket and bolt using the same fender holes. Here's a set of round tops on one of my 8n's. Most people don't even know they are there.

  • Looks like a better idea than bolting that one piece ring to the rim.

  • I agree. The inside wheel weights make removal of the wheel difficult. It is very unbalanced. I have CaCl loaded tires that easier to remove than the ones with wheel weights.
