These came in a box of REO stuff I bought at a small engine shop closeout a couple of years ago. I was told in a forum long ago that the wheels were not REO and I haven't seen the carburetor on any type of REO engine. Still, with the limited amount of time I have researched these they could be REO parts. So...... Any ideas what these are for? The wheels (I am assuming they are drive wheels of some type that you'd put a rubber tire on) have the number 2-3182 cast into the inside. I can't find any markings on the carb.

I thought I'd renew this thread as we have a few thousand more members than when I first posted it. I have since sold the carb but still have those wheel things. Anyone have any ideas on what they are for?

Could those drive wheels be for a lawn sweeper ?

I was thinking something similar. Maybe drive wheels, minus the tires, for a self propelled lawn mower.

Don't remember seeing this thread before. The carb looked like a Pincor but I don't know about the wheels.

Yep, carb was a Pincor. Lawn sweeper wheels might be a good lead.

Bump on the thread for ideas on the wheels. Any of the newer members have some more ideas as to what they might be?

Reel mower, push type, missing the rubber wheel, the second depression on the outside of the wheel is for a hub cap that cliped onto the inside of the wheel were the shaft protudes though, i have seen a bunch of these here and there from different reel mowers.
The self propelled ones were chain driven.

Yes, i believe also that these could be off a lawn sweeper.

I believe the wheel may be for a self-propelled reel mower. ....The small cavity on the outside of the wheel was where a washer and cotter pin (or snap ring) would be to retain the wheel on its shaft. ...The larger recess may have been for a "hubcap".

The teeth on the inside of the wheel are where the small pinion gear (attached to the reel shaft) would drive the wheel.

Are there lugs on the O.D. of the rim to engage a tire?

There were Pincor reel mowers (I don't recall the color of the wheels), and Cooper and Toro reel mowers (red wheels) as well as Reo and many other brands.

Very well could be but would be a new one to me, i have never seen a engine driven one casted in Aluminum, always malleable iron.
Toro is all iron (lator steel), Jabcobson is all iron (lator steel), Copper is all iron, Reo all iron, Monarch all iron, Pincor could be, it would make sense, they had some with red wheels.

Before i forget again, lugs are not used for reel mower tires ( if there are some im willing to stand corrected), they were pressed onto ones just like in the above picture with a screw press, when i changed them i would boil them untill pliable and soft remove from the rim, boil some more then quickly roll it on and seat it onto the other rim before it cooled off, when cooled it grips the rim very tightly.
