  • Happy Holidays everyone! Still working on the 861 restoration --- almost done. Looking for lug extenders and nuts. Any idea where to find them. The Master Parts catalog doesn't show any info related to the pie weights so if anyone has the technical data it'd be appreciated. Thanks.

  • Many years ago I posted a dissertation on rear wheel stud extenders based on the various sizes and styles I had run across. It had photos of all the different styles and used to be in the archives but is gone now. Basically the thing you need to make sure (as someone else already noted) is that you get all 16 studs THE SAME LENGTH. When your are assembling a set from various sources it is easy to get some oddballs that won't match up with the rest. If they are not all the same length your weight mounting plate will not be even with the wheel.

  • Thanks
  • Thanks, Jim. All extenders match here. Thanks for your input. It'd be great if we could resurrect your dissertation. Merry Christmas.

  • For what its worth
  • FDS118 and 8N1132A2 are the same stud. New Holland shows them as available. Iam waiting for a reply with the cost. This info may help or may not just sharing it.

    Used to add pie weight plate or to direct dual the wheels
    1-1/16" hex, 2.650" overall length
    5/8" - 18 UNF thread pitch
    Note: if buying individual ones, measure length BEFORE ordering as there were 2 different lengths originally made.

  • HiYa Mike!
    You need the 53-58 MPC to see the wheel weights and parts associated with. They were not released until the 600/800 Series Models. The last I had heard, STEINERS was no longer making the stud extenders. There was a member here years ago who did make them, JIMUT, I believe, but he has since gotten out of the Ford Tractor area. I have a complete set of the HD (45#) Wheel Weights with 24 pie segments, 2 center mounting plates, 16 stud extenders, and all the hardware needed. I'd be willing to part with them -email is open. I think I may have an extra set of stud extenders as well.

  • Jim may have made them and I made several sets for other folks. I was charging $3.50 each which didn't even come close to covering the time involved to crank them out on a manual lathe and wouldn't cover the cost of 4' of the hex bar today.

    Steiner's still lists them as do a number of other vendors so I am sure they can be purchased for the going rate of roughly $11 each. Just do a Google search for "Ford FDS118" and you will get a bunch of hits.

  • Thanks everyone. After TOH sent me a link to Steiner, I found a pair at Ross Equipment in Columbia Station, Lorain County, Ohio. Mr. Ross has a huge inventory of Ford tractors and parts collected over the past 5 decades. He's not online but can be found at Ross Equipment, Columbia Station, Ohio -440-236-5132

  • Re: Dolan
  • Yes, Dan good catch! The 8N-1132 Stud Extenders were used with the 8N spacer for use with the dual rears. The pie weight sets were not introduced until the 600/800 Models and then only the 29# ones were to be used on the 600 Model. The HD set, the 45# ones, were declared to be too heavy for the lighter duty 600. This info is in the original 600/800 Operator's Manual. In the 53-58 MPC, the pie weights are listed with the stud extender listed as p/n 8N-1332-A which means there was at least one style.

  • Re: Dolan
  • I have not a clue. Never bought one but the description matches the ones I got from Jim and copied. IIRC he had identified a couple variants and Steiners warns of different lengths.

  • Dan-
    I wasn't certain that you too repopped the stud extenders and didn't want to speak out of school. I seem to recall that another difference was the thread size. I may be thinking of something else but I'm feeling the standard 5/8-18 Thread size was 9/16-20 on some or perhaps on one end only. Cost effectiveness and demand are what drive reproduction efforts. That's why we don't see many of the early 9N aluminum parts repopped and others. The 10 x 28 45 Closed Center Bar tires Carpenter had repopped are a good example. I think they only sold one or two sets, and now no longer made.
