VAO 28 wheel part?

I had a friend weld up the rusty areas in my VAO 28" rim and got ready to mount a good used tire I bought. But I noticed two holes in the rim and know I only have one valve stem! A look at the other rim shows there is a cast "block" (probably not the right term) on the inner side of the rim toward the hub. It fits inside the lug which the lug nut holds on. I assume it is there to keep the rim from rotating. So where can I get a replacement, and how does it fasten to the rim? Pressed into the hole? It doesn't go through a flat portion of the rim, so fabricating a replacement will be a challenge, although probably what I'll need to try if I can't get one somewhere. Thanks for any ideas. -

Like you said, these blocks keep the rim from slipping under a heavy load or if the wedges loosen up. I just took a look at the ones on my tractor and they look like a rivet with a square head, and a "V" on the underside of the head to match the rim. All you would have to do is get a short square headed bolt, cut the threaded portion off, "v-out" the back to match the rim, and have a welder plug-weld it from the back side.

Today's Featured Article - Harvestin Corn in Southern Wisconsin: The Early Years - by Pat Browning. In this area of Wisconsin, most crops are raised to support livestock production or dairy herds in various forms. Corn products were harvested for grain, and for ensilage (we always just called it 'silage'). Silo Filling Time On dairy farms back in the 30's and into the first half of the 40's, making of corn silage was done with horses pulling a corn binder producing tied bundles of fresh, sweet-smelling corn plants, nice green leaves with ear; the ...
