Putting duals on C

I was thinking of putting duals on the C because I was planning on using a 3pt disc. It has 9.5x24 with heavy cast center. I figured it would help with the weight of carrying it and traction pulling it in loose dirt. If anyone has done this and has good results would like to know how you did it. I was hoping to just get a set with the 4 eyes on the rim instead of adding another center. Thanks.

Definetley want them for that first time over and maybe second time over on plowed ground. Rides so much better, some traction, but mostly flotation. Plus let's face it. for some of us it looks cool as hell !! =)

I used to have a whole bunch of what I called spacer bolts, they replaced the regular bolts that held the wheel center to the axle. Then you put wheel and centers off another tractor on them. Inner wheel center was dished in and outer wheel center was dished out. When I sold the tire shop I left all that stuff there. Ask around at the salvage lots near you they may have some laying around.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

A C would be easy to do by using another set of centers and just get longer bolts to go thru both centers. Should be easy to find centers, I have quite a few laying around here. I don't think the C has enough power to do any damage....

Actually they are for floatation. It makes pulling a disc easier because the singles have to be trying to climb out of the loose dirt where the duals stay more on top. With my Oliver 1850 pulling a field cultivator I could step up one gear with duals over the singles. I have been to pulling contests where duals were aloud and they didn't do squat against singles.

Duals are a very good idea IF you can pull a Disc wide enough to cover your tire tracks.. My WD-45 with 14.9x28 duals is not as wide as my #37 IH Disc and anytime the duals are best to use with it. In loose "Plowed ground", Duals are mandatory...

You would just need to make them up, You can buy a second set of rims and tires then have a fab shop roll a spacer to fit the rim below the bead. I have a set like that on both of my Oliver 1850's. The spacers are tack welded to the outside rims but wouldn't have to be on that small of a rim because they wouldn't be that heavy. The clamps hold it in place. I have seen several pictures of people with duals on the C's.

Just me, I would think twice about adding duals to a model C. They may not be heavy built enough for that.

I remember back in the 70's guys would dual up or put on much wider tires on their old tractors. They ended up with broken axles, or internal damage. dad made a lot of money in his tractor repair business repairing tractors that weren't meant for duals.

I have one side of my Farmall BA set up with duals. I have the duals on the narrow side so as to help keep it from flipping over and it works well

When I have seen it done it was with a second pair of centers. This will be much stronger, I would think. If the inner set is dished in and the outer set dished out it will fit quite nicely.

With the heavy case centers found on most Cs it would be hard to put duals on. I do have a Farmall BA that I put duals on one side but they have pressed steel centers to be able to do that
