I think I see where I'm wrong. I have 7 of the clamps in the original post and only 1 of the clamps pictured in my reply to you so I think I actually only need one of the stop clamps with the little "finger" on it.

Be careful upon reassembly, as the so-called spacer clamp shown in the later photo can only be installed in a single position.

Installation in any other position will cause it to break upon tightening the bolt.

FWIW, the OEM fine threaded clamp bolts, nuts and washers are still available from CNH (or were a few years ago) but are quite expensive.

Thanks for the tip Dean, I'll make sure to be get it oriented the right way. Would the bolts and nuts you mention that were available at CNH be the same ones being sold on the yesterdays tractors parts store listed as "Ford 801 Rear Rim Carriage Head Bolt and Nut"? Asking because the ones for sale on the YT parts page says they are for an 801 series but don't mention model 861.

Haven't looked at the YT page but unlikely.

The YT bolts are most likely bolts for six loop rims.

The OEM PA clamp bolts are special fine threaded grade 8 (or harder) bolts and are shorter than six loop bolts.

The clamp bolts for vintage Ford PA rims buts be very tight to prevent noise and movement.

They are not carriage bolts but are similar.

Yes, they will be expensive if still available from CNH. So too will be the nuts and hardened washers.
