Well, I am sure I have "one" original Bush Hog cast rear wheel weight. The other is definitely IH Cub Cadet. Man, how I wish they both were Bush Hog weights! But I'm still happy! Here is how you can spot a Bush Hog weight:

Here is a pic of the cast weights on an HD-12 tractor. Note how the center of the weights make a pronounced upward "lip", just before the center hole. I haven't seen this on any other brand of weights, so I feel very safe declaring my one weight a "Bush Hog OE weight".

Now here is my Bush Hog weight:

Now my BH weight is on the left, IH weight to the right. Notice the up-turned lip around the center hole on the BH weight on left.

And the casting number of the BH weight:

This is the BH weight at the cutouts for valve stem access. Note the double angles up the inner point. The cutout comes near straight up from the bottom, then a sharper inward angle at the top portion. This pic also shows well how the lip turns up at the center hole.

Here is the bottom of the BH weight.

And finally, what is definitely an IH weight. Older IH part #'s are always ended in R1.

Thank you for writing this up! If you had not said this I would have thought it was an IH weight.

BTW, the casting number in the BH weight is just that, a casting number, and it doesn't match the model number for the optional weight set, which is #W-1. Usually part #'s aren't cast into the part as it is with the IH weights.

Yep, but it might be "somewhere over the rainbow"! :( That's exactly why I wanted to post this, so someone might identify one by this thread.

I have found that one version of IH weights look very much like the Bush Hog weight, but I have no profile pic to be sure. BUT, the IH weights that look like these have a small "IH" logo cast into them, so easy to distinguish if they are indeed identical otherwise. Here is the IH weight I'm speaking of.

On the lower weight, the "IH" is on the right hand side, while the top weight has the marking on the upper side in the pic. They also have a large "L" cast into them. When I can afford to buy a set of these IH weights, I will hide the IH markings so visually it will look OE on the D4-10. NOT to trick anyone, as it won't be for sale till after I die anyway. I think I will mark on the inside of it that it is NOT a Bush Hog weight just to stay completely honest.

Daniel, I have been watching those for a while and after you posted the info about them last night, I went back to look at them and they do have the IH logo cast in them.

Sorry Buddy...

I also take any weights I can get! I have IH weights on the front of both Power Kings, I think Bolens weights on the rear of the 312 and in the winter the '75 has David Bradley weights on the back.

Oh yes, any wheel weights (most especially cast iron) will do for me....usually. For this tractor Bush Hog sold me though, it would be so cool for it to have OE weights. If I live long enough to get them done, this tractor would likely end up with the Bush Hog snow blower restored & mounted to it for shows, what few I've ever make it to. Then the one I already restored, I'd like tyo get the Bush Hog tiller restored & mounted to it for shows.
Oh there I go.....drifting off my own thread's intent! LOL
