This 5000 I'm working on has some pie weights... on the front! Uses the typical mounting disk, bolted to a bracket with holes to match the nose of the bolster and bolts welded on to match the mounting disk. Looks factory made... or from a shop that did a good job. src="/cvphotos/cvphoto10494.jpg">

And I thought the factory weights on the front of my 6000 were ugly.

Yes... After you saying what it was made from, I can see it. I had though it must be cast or forged to have those ridges on the back (forged, in this case?), which would exclude most welding shops and farmers. Just happens to be the right width... drill 4 holes, round the corners, weld the bolts on the front.

One of us would sit on the left fender (away from the clutch) and other would sit on the gas tank and hold onto the crankcase breather pipe. ... [Read Article]
