I think the best way to get them is to buy a tractor that already has them. If it is just the weights you are after, keep them and sell the rest. Getting weights this way is usually cheaper in the long run versus having to buy them outright. It may be possible that you could get someone to sell the weights off their tractor, but usually it will not work out this way. I have seen them on ebay occasionally. Doing a craigslist search using keyword "weights" usually will bring up many garden tractors that have wheel-weights. The nice thing about this size of weight is that they will usually fit into a USPS flat-rate box so if you can find someone willing, shipping is relatively cheap. You'll also have to decide if you prefer the weights with the embossed "J" logo in the center. I am guessing that the early Jacobsen weights were cast with the logo and the later ones were not, perhaps to make them more compatible with other Jacobsen makes.

Here you go: http://boston.craigs...4260912303.html

I like to use google advanced search. Put in your keywords and limit the search to site craigslist.org. I find lots of parts around the country this way.

Hey! I been watching those! I'm was going to buy them the next time I'm going down to Boston.
Now you've gone and blabbed it all over the Internet! And your from Minnisota no less!

I'm just kidding of coarse. At a hundred bucks, their only worth it if I don't have to pay shipping.
Which means the next time I'm in the neighborhood. Fifty or seventy five bucks, maybe I'd make a special trip.

But, as you say for three or four hundred I can buy a tractor with weights!

I've been watching those for weeks. I'm really just window shopping.
I'll probably never buy them.

Those can be shipped together in a USPS Flat Rate Large box for about $15.00, can't drive anywhere for that. I would contact the seller and offer his a little extra to ship them to you. Just my thoughts!

 

Good Luck..

Now that I think about it those are front wheel weights aren't they?
Two bolt holes instead of four?

Joe, the rear weights also use two bolts and the notch is for the valve stem. The front weights have a hole cast in the center to fit over the wheel hubs. I don't come across the front weights too often. I got lucky and they came with a MM 110 I got recently. I'd get these myself if I didn't already have two sets of the rears.

I have the ones that say Jacobsen chief on my 64 and honestly it took a lot of searching to find ones for sale.
