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.
