    I have seen a few discussions on this bet never any real results, I am looking for a source for the plastic caps to cover the wheel bearings on my allis b-10, I know they are hard to come by but is anyone doing reproductions ? or a good set of used ones?

I assume you are talking about the front wheels....

Member GlenPettit on here makes/sells reproduction caps for Wheel Horse.

If I remember, he has some with the WH logo and some with-out.

Send him a PM, or maybe he will chime in.

As far as I know all of the Allis/Simplicity bear caps are steel. I've never seen plastic ones.

yep the front wheels are what I am referring to, there are metal grease caps that you tap on but over them there were or are plastic dust covers that just slid on.  they have been NLA or obsolete for a long time.  I haven't seen a set avail for in awhile.  I do have one good one on my big ten but that is it.  I will get a pic later today.

The plastic ones were most often found on B-1's early B-10's, but from conversation here it was discovered they were still offered for later model round hoods.  They are often missing and are tough to find.  Glenn was here last year, and we talked about the caps....I had forgotten, but I owe him dimensions so he can give making some up a try!!  I'll try to get him what he needs soon so the Simplicity guys can enjoy his ability to reproduce stuff like this.

My WH GT-14 was missing the dust covers and there were the steel ones...like you see on auts in the 60's with drum brakes...Anyway, I got replacements from NAPA.

I just had the inside measurement of the wheel and NAPA found one that fit!!

The BIG TEN is the latest I have seen them on.They were purely cosmetic as the steel dust cap was under them and done all the work...

    I am going to give plastic molding a try, I have a good cap to work with and I think with a little plaster I can make a good mold and give it a shot.

All large frames up through the 2000 Sovereign had steel ones...the plastic was a cosmetic add on for just the early ACs.
