I'm looking at purchasing a 1938 AC B. The tractor seems solid, runs well, and needs only minor work. The tractor's rear rims are mis-matched though. Any idea what a set of original rear rims for an '38 B sell for (I'm in MA if anyone knopws of set locally)? Any other tips for problem areas? Thanks

I've got a '41 and didn't know anything about looking at the rear wheels. They both fell off while I was driving it. The silly design with the half turns was eroded/worn and wouldn't hold. Both different wheels...must be like socks out of my dryer. I feel a little better now that it is more common than I thought. I replaced both and they work fine. You really feel stupid when the 'ol B lets you down!

I also got a 38 B with mis-matched rims. I you weren't so far away, we might swap (i'm Indiana). You might check to see if the rear wheel centers are tight on the axles by gripping the top of the tire and tug back and forth, while looking for movement around the axle nut. My axles were shot and I have temp fixed them.

Today's Featured Article - Product Review: Lead Substitutes - by Mike Schordine. Lead was oriinally added to gasoline as an upper cylinder lubricant. It lubes the valves and seats. If you rebuild the motor, you could use hardened seats and valves, and unleaded fuel. But if your old tractor runs good, a simple lead substitute added to the gas is a perfectly reasonable solution. And, if you are like me, your tractor is under cover, but it sits outside. So with every temperature change, the humidity in the air collects in the fuel tank, in the form of water. ...
