Anyone know what Sears/Roper wheel weights are filled with.
Have two very heavy weights that came off a Roper front end loader I had years ago.
After laying in the sand for over 20 years I dug them up and found they fit exactly on the recently acquired Craftsman II which is my utility tractor.
The one is in great shape, the other no so good.
Something chewed the plastic around the perimeter of back side...the entire back covering is gone.
After a thorough cleaning I found whatever the filler is to be broken in several pieces, all there, just majorly broke with fractures all the way through.
Can't see the front side as the outer rim and front are intact.
I'm entertaining putting a dam, if you will, around the remainder of the back rim and pouring epoxy in after the holes are re-sleeved and applying vibration to get the epoxy into all the nooks and crannies.
I've never seen mortar, cement, that glitters...this stuff is loaded with shiny particles, but it appears to be some form of masonry material.
Think the epoxy idea will work? Anyone?
