Hi - I have a very old (1970s ?) snow thrower by Bolen / FMC  model 1032.  Still runs well with my TLC.  Recently lost air in one of the drive wheel tires.  Wheel was seized onto the drive shaft and would not budge. As a last resort, I cut the wheel off with a grinder - thinking that it would be easy to find a replacement.  Not so!.  I have tried just about everywhere on line but today this forum was recommended to me- so here I am looking for help.  Wheel and tire are in the parts list as item 41 - Part # 1725304 - Wheel Disk and Tire is item 42 - Part # 1725305 size 13-6.50 x 6.  I believe the drive shaft is 7/8".  Does anyone have any suggestions on where I can buy a replacement? I could really use the help - Cheers

Hmm... let me take a look at my literature and get back with you.... The later production 1032's just used 16x6.50 X8 tires

Yours must be earlier.

 

 

Welcome to GTT by the way!

So if I understand correctly you cut the metal rim of the tire as well?

Tire is no Big deal as I can still order them, rim may be a bit of a challenge

 

Can it be welded back together?

Could you post some pictures of the damage?

 

By the way yours should be an early 1979 model, many are still kicking around here in the states.
