  • 41 steering wheel
  • Where the heck do I find a new bakelite 41 3 spoke wheel? SN 55412, I think too new for a 4 spoke.Thanks!

  • You might just redo it yourself, it is not that difficult. I did my 8N wheel and it came out very well (Tim Daley has a photo of it). I used POR two part filler putty for cracks and tapered parts of the plastic, painted it with Rustoleum black and took it over to my local body shop and had them clear coat the plastic part whenever they were doing that on a car-they did and didn't charge me anything for it. Looks like new and better that any you can buy.

    I plan the same for my 39 and I also have a 41 with the original wheel that will get the same treatment if I ever get around to restoring it.

  • Nobody deals with Bakelite anymore. Other plastics have replaced it. Dennis Carpenter makes and sells very good repops, including the early 9N 4-Spoke Wheel -see LINK.

  • Thanks Tim, I saw that. But I need a 3 spoke for a 41. Might have to send mine out to be redone or as usual I'll end up buying a whole tractor to get a decent used one. LOL
