Grrrrrr. Got One H Wheel Weight Off

HOT DOG! I found a technique that worked quite well. My tendonitis wasn't about to let me pound on those bolts and nuts for very long. I started with a 6 ton hydraulic jack and set it between the bolt/nut head and the side of the drawbar. After breaking the jack (20 years old) I got a 12 ton jack. I would have used a 20 but there is only about 9 1/2 inches of clearance. I pushed out the wheel weight about 1/4 inch then rotate the tire and push out the next one. After I had the weight out 1/4 inch all the way around, I removed the nuts and pushed each bolt/wheel weight about another 1/2 inch. On the third revolution, I pushed the end of the bolts to the hub. I then was able to pull the weight off. You might have to set your jack so the plunger is hanging down low so it will get oil to jack.

Red,

When you go back together, Try some never seize just on the bolt that goes through the hub. May not want to put any on the threads because you may not be able to keep them tight.

That rim looks like a Case--from the hub, if it 'steps' down 1 its a Case. If it 'steps' down 2, its a Farmall. Got 1 Case and 1 IH on my SC.

It depended on the rim width. Old Red H at the farm has 9 inch rims so it has the two step. Indy H at the farm has 10 inch and they have the one hump and then the slope before it flattens out. Old Rusty has what appears to be 11 inch rims so the slope is fairly flat. I looked through the H Photo Archives and both styles of rims appear in the pictures. I do know these rims have been off because the rim clamps are on backwards.

Humm....I should have thought of this while I was spending 6 hours removing the left and right axles out of the Super A. Maybe this idea could somehow work with this?

Found an H today that looks very much like old rusty setting behind a vacant house on the north side of town. Didn't have the fenders but did have a 3 point hitch. Not sure how to find out who the owner is. Think it would be a good find for the right price.

Red, watch what you label pictures. There are young farmers present. Like i've told you boys in the past, "a program of monthly wheel weight rotation will, in the long run, prevent these major headaches" Glad you are winning. Dick

Oops on that link title. I was just happy to get those weights off. I bet they have been bolted there for 59 years.

Today's Featured Article - Show Coverage: Fair Weather Tractor - by Dave M.. No, Fair Weather isn't some rare brand. It's the kind you can't leave out in the rain. Here's how it happened. I had been casually looking for a tractor for weeks. I saw a few 9N's, but they had even fewer amenities than the 8N my Grandpa bought new in '52 with a Dearborn loader. That was 10 years before I was born, so I grew up thinking that 8N was the world's best tractor. Grandpa had greenhouses, with over half an acre under glass, and that 8N did almost everything. It was the only ... [Read Article]
