Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

Charles in AUD not USD or PND, the £100 was just a listing I saw. I'll have a look at that site though.

Thanks for the photos and descriptive advice Charles.

I was looking at a place that had reproduction bolts for 100pounds I think I will try your approach instead.

In Pine Bush Bones?

He's been trying to sell them for some time now. No reduction in price which might explain why he still has them!

Seem like an odd set of weights. Can't tell how they would stay on the tractor. On closeup, they almost look like pavers. May not even be metal - Cast cement perhaps?

yup, I talked to the guy, he's easy to chat with. Take a look at them, they are pretty neat, they bolt on top of the axle and are cradled in the fender, look at the shape, custom fitted. They must be cast steel since they weigh 180lbs each.

Thanks Graham .

The back of the weights on my own TED20 showing the hex head bolts with modified square plate washers welded on.

Some genuine Ferguson bolts , note the angled round washers to allow the nut to sit neatly against the wheel face .

Fastenal has square headed bolts. Not sure what size you'd need, but they carry a pretty decent variety. They also carry square beveled washers, but likely not like originals.
Good info Charles - never knew that. I've only ever seen hardware store bolts and nuts attaching weights.

Any old bolt will do , your tractor doesn't travel at 90 miles an hour so there is no need for anything like cat 8 or exotic bolts . Original Ferguson bolts were square heads and mild steel . The ' Finesse ' comes in the washers under the nuts , the heads go into the square indentation in the weight itself , the nut to the outside of the wheel . In order for the nut to contact the sloping wheel dish face a wedged shaped washer is needed . There are some available for concrete form work use but they are not quite right . The best way is to cut wedges out of solid round bar and centre drill them to suit .

If you can't source square headed bolts ; as I couldn't, then a square washer made from six mm flat bar welded under the hex head of the bolt will secure it into the weight and stop it from turning .

While we are on the subject, a local guy has these original Fergie weights 180lbs each for over the axle. He wants $350 for the pair. It seems a bit excessive, it's like 20-25% of what the tractor may be worth. thoughts?

They are overpriced. That's why he still has them for sale. As far as being original ferguson I'm not sure about that. Always though that they were aftermarket. One set I had was stamp farmhand. They are cast steel and use a 10" square head bolt. I have had maybe 8/10 sets over the years, some flat tops like he has and some round tops. I have a set of flat tops on my '40 9n. They weigh in at 170 lbs each. I've never seen a flat top weigh more than that. The round tops can weigh 180/185 lbs. I've pulled them off Fords and Ferguson. The ones he has with fit the N series Ford or TO TE series Ferguson. They also made a flat top one that had a cutout for the later Ford hundred series model to go over the axle nuts because of the differences between the N series and the later models axle trumpets.
While installing the set on my 9n, now I know I'm getting old, I had to set up my Mason scaffold and use a come along and sling to get them on. Almost drop one on my foot one time.

yeah, I shouldn't say original Fergie, I don't know. Just looked nicely fitted. In speaking with the guy he made a big deal of saying he weighed them on his bathroom scale and was surprised to see 180 each and that he had never seen that before. I thought they were overpriced. Nothing special or unique about them, just a hunk of steel.
